Divinity in Action

Recently, I had a request from Elaine Rosenbaum, the Career Specialist at Ware Shoals High School...She asked me if I would write a poem for the Board members of Ware Shoals Schools...She requested that I write the poem about the School Board and place the poem as the wrapper on Hershey candy bars for the members…I did just that, and it made me smile when I saw the result…It is beautiful to me how God takes each of us as the colors on a canvas and paints the most beautiful of life’s pictures…


I was delighted to have this wonderful opportunity to share my heart-thoughts and to show appreciation to those who make important decisions for the youth and community of Ware Shoals...Elaine has been and is a very positive force at Ware Shoals High and in my life...I met her when I spoke at the school...She is a warm, positive, and insightful individual...She is a dynamic person in a very important role in this community...I am blessed to know her, as are many others whose lives she impacts...


The poem I wrote is entitled "The Board Knows"...It tells the principled truths behind those who make the decisions for the youth who are impacted by their decisions made with their maturity and experience...Faye Sprouse is the Superintendent of Schools for the Ware Shoals Schools...She has a loving interest in the community and the youth...Ware Shoals is blessed to have her in the role in the school system...


May this poem and story bless you as it did me to write it...


The Board Knows


The Board knows choices must be made

And responsibilities must be addressed --

It knows commitment is key

To many of life's tests --

The Board knows that issues and functions

As well as dreams and visions

Are dependent solely upon its decisions --

The Board knows it takes absolute devotion

And forward-thinking minds

To prepare youth

For today as well as future times…

Ultimately the Board knows

With focused minds and deliberate design

What will evolve will be their vision in time…

I love this idea of your tritbute, in poetry form, on a candy bar wrapper. I can imagine the response and the encouragement.
