Lost and Found Poem

We are home and safe. Thank you for everything...
So on the last blog, I wanted to do something a little bit different. I am an English teacher, so I thought it would be really cool to write a poem. I asked each member of our team to write down a couple of sentences answering the question - What did you see God do this week? Here is what they wrote.

Lost and Found

The light breaks through
the bars in a window.
Yellow -
Green -
Blue -
Pink -

A dream -
two hundred kids,
such a vision,
potential for a plan.
A blueprint in
truth -
to grow a church
to strengthen a community.

God gives faces to the faceless,
an intensity,
a yearning
to reduce self
to make Him bigger.

Wisdom to teach -
Wisdom to practice patience.

God's mighty hands
hold broken hearts,
a safe haven.

He whispers as He speaks, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

A hope,
A greater passion,
A promise.

A submission -
to be used as
an instrument.

ALLELUIA! - a new perspective,
One language -
