God, a man, and home

by LaNaye Perkins  
6/20/2008 / Poetry

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.
-LaNaye Perkins
