We pray for children

by Ina Hughes We pray for children Who put chocolate fingers everywhere, Who like to be tickled, Who stomp in puddles and ruin their new pants, Who sneak Popsicles before supper, Who erase holes in math workbooks, Who can never find their shoes. And we pray for those Who stare at photographers from behind barbed wire, Who can't bound down the street in new sneakers, Who never "counted potatoes," Who are born in places we wouldn't be caught dead ...

‘Twas The Night Before Jesus Came

written by Unknown Author 'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house Not a creature was praying, not one in the house. Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that Jesus would not come there. The children were dressing to crawl into bed. Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.

My Mountain Spring

Something so sweet lives in me - has been in me And now as I live to live to give life light It oozes out of me Like water from rivers unseen From banks of mighty waters Where life’s lines ripple above, over and against its motion I stand and I kneel somewhere amidst stately carved mountains Purposefully uneven in its carvings and hollowed in the ...
