POSITIVE NEW YEAR

POSITIVE NEW YEAR

From the balcony with a smile,
Said, “think positive, Child”…
It should be thus
To think on the “plus,”
This New Year is yet undefiled.

Think positively, you’re in it,
Your future is in the next minute…
Think positively
And you’ll agree
Your future is as bright as you spin it.

Despite the eventual trial,
Face ev’ry new day with a smile…
I see what she meant
And I do repent,
Poets are positive…once in a while!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
