On a different journey than most through life
Without career and family, money and style
Limited by health and slowing in wits
Finding new friends hardly seems worthwhile
But here in the cradle of Christ's love and compassion
The rain of His Spirit, the reign of His kingdom
Brings together the lonely, the alone and forgotten
And builds there the basis to a family become
Now we have cause, common ground for acceptance
Let us reason together and walk alongside
To rejoice in our Savior and await His appearance
In each other accountable as in Him we abide
By His Spirit we have all been fully enabled
In His eyes we all wear garments of white
To his ears our praise all sounds just as sweet
And in our hearts, if we're honest, we all need His light
His mercy negates all our achievements and prides
His love bids us look beyond possessions and dress
His purpose brings all to the cross just the same
And being conformed to His image alone brings success
My esteem, my true value, is the same as is yours
We've been bought by the most loving, most dreadful of price
Our worth in God's eyes, the very life of His Son
So let's esteem one another to the glory of Christ

(Our worth in God's eyes, the very life of His Son So let's esteem one another to the glory of Christ) Taking this from your article, I don't know how it could be said much better than that! (smile) Blessings, Sharon
A most excellent verse. Your talent for inking deep thought is well exhibited in this poem. Yes, most excellent, indeed.
So very, very good! Well done. I can't even pick a favorite piece because it all fits together so well to form a perfect picture. Thanks for sharing this! pat
