January (last year)

This is the year Iíll lose the weight;
Iíll look my best; Iíll get a date.
This is the year Iíll exercise;
Iíll trim my waist and tone my thighs.
This is my year to do my best
With Godís help, Iíll pass every test.

March

This is my year! Six pounds are gone.
I get up and jog, each day at dawn
Iíve joined the singles group, downtown
My dating life has turned around.
This is my year! Itís really swell;
With Godís help, I am doing well.

May

This isnít my year; itís getting tough;
Forgoing snack food is so rough.
And exercising is not for me
And the guys Iíve met can go climb a tree
This isnít my year; I just canít do it
I donít think God can help me through it.

July

This is my year to accept my weight
Being ďpleasingly plumpĒ must be my fate.
Iíll clean my house; my yard needs weeding
(And I need to catch up on Bible reading.)
Itíll still be my year; just wait and see;
God will be making some changes in me.

September

This is the year to forget those chores
Iíll pamper myself and go visit the stores.
I think a new hairstyle or brand new perfume
May help me feel to shake off these feelings of doom.
I must turn my life in a different direction;
With Godís help, Iíll do some self-reflection

November

This wasnít my year. Not one thing went right.
My weightís up ten pounds; my clothes donít fight right
I havenít read Scripture; I donít have a date
Iíd better do something Ė before itís too late,
Should I drink green tea? Should I eat some kelp?
Oh, God, please guide me; I need your help

January Ė (this year)

This is the year that God will lead
He will supply my every need.
I know Iíll need to take some action
But He will be my satisfaction.
This is my year to do His best
Iíll trust in God; Heíll do the rest.

I can certainly relate to all of this:) Nice job showing the brightness of a new year right through when it's not easy.
