It was one of those hit-the-shoulder-for-a-quick-photo days... 
a heart-full-o'-wonder and glory-hallelujah praise.

We are more than mouths gaping while shaping stuttered praise
We are ageless souls clad in the flesh of numbered days

We are more than hold-let-go, yes-no and maybe-so
We are Why Christ came to die and by His grace we go

We are more than skin-bone plunder, want-wish-wonder-wait
We are God’s beloved children; live-love-celebrate

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—John 1:12

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, Gal.3:26

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Rom.8:14

The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Rom.8:16


  1. I'm having fun with your word collections ... they roll so wonderfully from the tongue. Love 'want-wish-wonder-wait'.


    1. thank-you Brenda...this was a quick ditty that came to my thoughts during supper-dishes.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
