the family missions thank you

writing for five minutes on thank you -

like the men in white asked the disciples
why do you stand looking
i heard a
 months-ago whisper
go, take the boys
and the whisper became a shout 
so we ordered passports

but this trip to our dominican friends
didn't make financial sense
and so the thanks -
our family
my faculty
my readers
who donated money, sports equipment, books, paper, crayons
who bought cd's and books and cookies and cake

so our boys could
lead music
and learn sacrifice
god raised you up to bring forth the harvest
thank you

  3. Isn't it a blessing that when you give when it's hardest you get so much in return. What a testimony.
    You have much to be thankful for....
    Peace and good to you in Jesus' name.
