Balance Brought Forward

We close the old year
With a trashcan full of old calendars
And empty walls to hang some new ones.

Memories remain
Some good
Some bad

But when we do the numbers
Having reached the bottom line
The balance is blessings.

So with this balance brought forward
We turn our faces towards a new year and look ahead
With gratitude.

  1. Most definitely looking at it with gratitude, my friend. For what we know to be true is that it certainly could’ve been the other way around. 🙂 No matter what went on last year or the year before; giving thanks for seeing another year is a great gift in itself. Awesome share, Ken. Thanks. 🙂

    • You’re right Deeone, I know there were some years for our family it seemed like the other way around. But God has always brought us through. Just to be here this day and to know that we have survived whatever storms have come our way is reason enough for thanksgiving.

  2. Beautiful words Ken!

    I liked the way you weaved your words so well about the close of the year….Wishing you and yours a very happy and prosperous happy new year, and thanks so much for stopping-by to share your life experiences with everyone. Appreciate it a great deal 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
