A Quote From Scripture to Introduce Our Theme. . .

____________________________________________________

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and dust doth corrupt, and where thieves break in and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor dust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal: for where your treasure is, there will you heart be also." Mark 6: 19-21

 

A Special Poem for You. . .

THIS IS HOME
"Home is where the heart is." - Pliny

 
This road is home.
This moment is home.
We are at home wherever we are,
Wherever we are is home.

This walk is home.
This dance is home.
From God we're never far, and change is who we are,
Forever reaching toward our star!

We try this and that,
Asking, "What can satisfy?"
Yet to see "Thou art that."
Relieves us of asking "Why?"
It's a pleasure sometimes not to ask "Why?"

This road is home.
This moment is home.
We are at home wherever we are,
Wherever we are is home.

This walk is home.
This dance is home.
From God we're never far, and change is who we are
Forever reaching toward our star!

We ask for guidance from within.
And God says, "There you are!"
We ask, "How many angels can fit on a pin?"
(God:) "Even this, Child, you shall know."
"Even this, Child, you shall know."
"Even this, Child, you shall know!"

-Michael D. Purvis 2001
