A Better Year Filled With Good Cheer

Here’s to a better year filled with good Cheer!

So, don’t jeer, sneer or fear as you pass the root beer, Dear.

For God will make every trial worthwhile,

Returning to the Nile the crocodile with toothy smile

That raises its ugly head. It wants to see you dead,

But we need live with no dread.

Instead of trying to hide fleshly pride

That makes you feel as if you died inside,

Why not choose humility which breeds civility?

Also, please know it’s not your own ability

Or agility which leads to tranquility

As well as a sense of stability.

For the person who’s been jilted,

It doesn’t mean you’ve wilted.

Therefore, don’t get in a snit

Or spit or throw a hissy fit

When you can speak God’s wit,

As He who pulled you from the pit sees fit.

If you would have a better year filled with good cheer,

Then what you need first and foremost is a resurrection of affection.

It’s the kind of infection that grants protection,

A glorious fruit inspection

With zero gloom detection

Minus any need for correction.

It’s the sort of prosperity that breeds charity,

Though some call it a rarity.

I proclaim with all sincerity:

Here’s to a better year filled with good cheer!



Author: C R Flamingbush

C.R. Flamingbush grew up in Wheaton, Illinois and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in German and linguistics. After working seven years for the Department of Defense (an easy job), she took on the most difficult challenge in the world: a lifetime career of raising four children. Along the way she developed a passion for writing Christian superhero fantasy. She enjoys humor because it's Biblical (see the second psalm) and she loves to make people laugh - whether through her writings, her art, or just by being herself. Writing fantasy is her way of poking fun at human foibles and all the ridiculous ideas that so easily beset the human race, while at the same time honoring God in every way she can. Flamingbush has been a member of Faithwriters since 2010, and several of her winning contest entries have been published by Fresh Air Press. She likes Fan Story and has been a Narnia fan since the age of ten. In terms of influence, she aspires to be the next C.S. Lewis but has quite a ways to go in that regard. Speed of Sight, a Superhero Adventure, is her first novel. A sequel is in the works.
