May you have the grace, strength and imagination to make this the best Christmas you ever had.



Please tell us about your goals;
Be sure to keep a log.
I would love to say,
But my head is in the fog.



In the fog of unknowing;
Of confusion and doubt;
Unclear in my heart
So I can’t figure things out.



In the fog of the present,
So unable to see
Ahead much of all;
What the future holds for me.



But surely you’ve made some plans,
With a timeline and all!
I have some ideas,
But that fog…I hit a wall!



Who knows what the future holds?
Who can say with such cheer,
“I see it all now,
The future is very clear!”



The fog isn’t exclusive;
It isn’t just for me;
We all live in it;
The future is hard to see.



I do believe in planning,
Perhaps keeping a log;
With humility,
Since my head is in the fog.


This is a new day,
Filled with fresh ideas,
Creative vision,
Hopeful plans and dreams.


Yesterday is done;
It has now grown cold,
With its hurts and pains,
Its accomplishments,
Blessings, smiles and gains.


I’ll fold yesterday
Put it in a drawer,
Tell the good stories,
Forgive all the rest,
Recall the glories.


Today, I will build
And sow healthy seed,
With promises bright,
So that tomorrow
Brings blessings and light.
