( By Jan Phillips )
In the year 2011 a lot of things fell through
Many of the things I planned to do;
But that’s okay because I know I will get another chance
I have a brand new year to take another stance.
Many of God’s plans were carried on just as He had planned
Things I didn’t know about that He knew firsthand;
I don’t always know just what He has in store
When He is ready He will let me know more.
I have given Him my life to do with as He will
Sometimes though I try to do it my way still;
The year 2011 has been hard in many ways
But we made it through and He deserves the praise.
This past year I have made some wonderful new friends
I have never met them in person yet on them I still depend;
We exchange ideas on the internet and talk some too
They have given me new life and my soul they did renew.
I owe it all to God and the plans He didn’t share
He knew what I needed all the time and He put them there;
He gave me a church where I go every week
He gives me the opportunity to obtain what I seek.
So don’t think the year 2011 was all that bad
It gave me some things I have never had;
I owe it all to God and His unrevealed plans
All I have to remember is to leave it in His hands.
