Clinkety, clinkety!! Clank, clank, clank!!
The sound of pots and pans rejoice in the night air.
Purple, blue, green, and red–
colorful, boisterous fireworks burst and awaken a dark, dormant sky,
welcoming in a new year.
With celebration, let us remember former promises–
those old resolutions bring to the forefront.
New works we must also do:
Increasing the Kingdom of God–
offering a helping hand to a daughter, son, sister, or brother in need
Do unto them as we would do unto Him.
For I was hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
For such Love covers a multitude of sins,
perhaps even prickling a broken and contrite heart–
an offering to He Who saves,
regardless of past transgressions and oppression.
May the work of the Lord be a priority in our lives,
answering this beckoning opportunity.
