Year 2011

( 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.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
