Decade and a Half

As part of our church Christmas party presentation-Mariel and I made a slide show using the Windows media movie maker. I wrote a poem for it and using the background music of “Thank you, Lord” played with a flute by David Gonzales- I read this poem:


After a decade and a half

We lost our home.

Then we heard again

His whisper

In a song

In a story

Music that gently touching

our wounded hearts


In a thousand little pieces.

In a city full of buildings

We found them

As they let us enter

And be part of them.

Before we despaired

of cold nights

Before the northern wind

chills our spirits

The Lord had helped us

to find

a new home.
