Simply... People

Some wear threads of satin and silk
While some wear plain, meager cloth
Some sip fine wine while others gulp milk
But God is the God of both
Some speak with cultured refinement
Some say ‘you is’ and y’all
But I’ve come to the conclusion
We’re simply people; that’s all

Some strut across earth’s grand stages
While others cheer, shout and applaud
Some serve in deep, hidden places
Where nobody sees…but God
Some hunt for food in the jungle
While others feast every day
With people serving people
It’s always been this way

God made both servant and master
Rich, poor and in-between
He does not love one o’er another
And none are misplaced or unseen
Then, when this little life is over
We all pass through one common door
So we ought always to love one another
For we are simply people; nothing more

slave nor free, 
male nor female,

  1. Love this Janet! :) We all have different approaches to life and different opinions; what a beautiful experience it is to surround myself with those of different cultures and backgrounds! God loves variety, and regardless of our background, circumstances or history - His love and grace is intended for us all.

    Blessings and love,

  2. Denise, so true! Sometimes I can't help but chuckle...for all our unique and personal differences we are still all very much the same!

  3. Yes, Janet....God is all of all, and we are all people and no one is better in someone else in the eyes of God!

  4. Hello there :) I've been caught up elsewhere for too long it seems! I love your words in combination with that image... really tied it all together for me. You're right ~ we are all the same when we dig down deep enough ~ and, thank you God for loving us all the same, no matter our earthly circumstances!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. Any thoughts you would like to share?
