These Make a Home
The love of parents, dear and true,
To dwell beneath the skies of blue,
Country meadows, vast and wide,
The wonder of God's countryside,
Kindness, caring, childhood dreams,
The happiness of magic scenes...
Touch of beauty, hopes to keep,
Confidence, believing reaps,
Memories we cherish still,
Valleys deep, a climbing hill,
Yesterdays we treasured so,
Sun at dawning, nights aglow...
Family that's ever dear,
Happy moments ever near,
Laughter, sorrow - bits of each,
Pleasures close - some out of reach,
Togetherness - sometimes alone...
'Tis all of these make a home.
Poem by Garnett Ann Schultz
"Happy the chosen ones You bring to dwell in Your
courts. May we be filled with the good things of
Your house, the blessings of Your holy temple!"
"May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."
2 Corinthians 13:14
