Changing Life
The days of joyful gatherings
become the day-to-day.
Christmas carols choirs sing
become good words to say.

Last week's job is over, now,
and this week's job I learn.
Emotions must all serve and bow
as New I must discern.

It makes no diff'rence if the place
of business is the same,
I must give training its own place
as that first day, I came.

The usefulness of my old skills
must take a step behind
as leadership and teamful wills
bid new skills I must find.

One day retirement will be mine,
but even in that day
my blossoming upon the vine
fulfills each prayer I pray.

My daily trek is one more step
t'ward Christ's Eternity.
"Dear Lord, please give me vim and pep.
Your honored Name they see.

These daily days become much less
of my own strength and skill.
I bow before Thy Name to bless,
to do Thy Loving Will.
