Common Bond

PAD Challenge day 6: today’s Two-for-Tuesday prompt:
  • Write a lost poem. Or…
  • Write a found poem.

In a diverse human race
We share this common ground
Of soul-sweet smile upon the face
When what was lost is found

This morning my friend lost her keys, but they have  since been found!
The rejoicing over this bit of news made me think of the story below and how GREAT that rejoicing must be!

Luke 15:3-7 New International Version (NIV)

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
