Singing out Loud

Birthday Bounty

This season, I choose to receive the ultimate gift - Perspective!
It's the light that cracks through the darkness and the doubt
.... the joy that washes over my soul when the scales fall off my eyes
.... the rest that comes with ‘really knowing’ what I can’t see.
It's true freedom!

I am not sure there is a better way to live.
And for this blessing, dear Lord, I am eternally thankful!

Birthday Blues

When I look at the rung on which my life is seemingly perched,
and contemplate the heights to which I desire to climb,
a heaviness descends over me... and leaves me weak in the limb.
I get the sinking yet re-assuring feeling that without Divine assistance,
I labour in vain.

If I did not factor God in the equation of my life,
I'ld be all over the map, lost in off-the-chart imbalance.
My life makes sense, even when it doesn't, because God's in it!

I therefore, choose to believe the truth. 
Yes, for the most part, my cup has been full to over-flowing.
With every passing year, I've seen boundless bounty and blessing.


To my limbs: 'Press on!
Climb the ladder of life... one rung at a time.

To m'dearest heart: 'Keep your chin up!'
Rejoice and sing-out-loud!
God's not through with us yet!

... in the end, we win!
