Its life began decades ago
One man building a place to grow
Rough hewn timbers were then hacked out
Beams of oak so solid and stout
Newspapers old to seal the cracks
So winter's chill would be held back
Children thrived being taught by love
Parents sought God's wisdom above
Time passes the parents are gone
One child comes, then calls it home
Their children raised like they were shown
Reared in love new seeds being sown
Once again the children moved on
Parents remain till God calls home
A new child now calls it home
Third generation now is shown
How God can show the way to grow
Inside this house built long ago
Its beams of oak hewn out by hand
Tenderly crafted by a man
His home was shielded by God's love
And lives were guided from above
These generations have stayed strong
Because of God, a man, and home.
From the beginning the Lord let me know I was to share whatever He inspired me to write. Now, over a decade later, I'm still sharing what He's given.
