One Race





We run this race together
The color of our skin
Does not define the person
No, this comes from within

Love does not choose or differ
But pours from heart and soul
And God creates the color
In which to wrap this whole

The color of the body
Is flesh; we all will pass
Like flowers in the garden
To dust beneath the grass

God did not choose one color
To offer Saving Grace
His love extends to one and all
Within the human race

Love does not see skin color
To hate is but to prove
Our ignorance and squalor
And utter need for Love

God has created only one race; it's called human. Dr. Alan Snyder

Jesus Loves the Little Children

  1. I just finished reading the book The Help, so this topic is fresh and keen. I grew up taught by a little song my mother sang to us...

    Jesus loves the little children
    All the children of the world
    Red and yellow, black and white
    They are precious in his sight,
    Jesus loves the little children of the world.

    'all are PRECIOUS in His sight'. Yes.
