God's Family

This poem was given to my mom by her good friend, Cherry Kauffman. I hope that you enjoy!

God's Family

God puts within a church’s family,
People who want to help make
Theirs the best kind of church around,
They’ll do what ever it takes.

You’ll find them decorating bulletin boards,
Teaching songs and verses to kids,
Cooking, comforting, hugging, sharing
Just doing whatever He bids.

You’ll see them stop and give a smile,
To someone what has lost his own,
Encourage the person who no one knows
Is feeling so alone.

These special people don’t know they’re special,
How much their love and skills nurture all,
They simply go forth, ordinary saints
Fulfilling the Master’s call.

You gave a special gift to our church
You planted yourself as a seed in good ground.
You made a difference in other’s lives,
Your harvest will be coming around.
