A Family with an Old Fashioned Love

Family With “An Old Fashioned” for Jesus!


I know of a family and what an experience!

 They display Christ’ love by their

 humble appearance!


Often I can hardly believe what I’m seeing!

The love and joy of Christ I was receiving!


They don’t have much in the way of entertainment.

They have God’s peace and sweet contentment!


They’re happy about God and very excited.

They talk about the good things in life 

and are delighted!


The simple things in their family do abound!

Love and peace in their home,

can be found!


A love for God in this home, I’m able to see!

What’s good for them,

 is good for me!


A respect for the parents is clear and evident.

They accept the Holy Spirit as their “chief resident!”


I’m thankful to God for the blessing they’ve been.

I’m glad that I know them and call them friend!


May we all be encouraged in our families too!

May we not forget to say; “I LOVE YOU!”


May the love of Christ keep us all together!

May we seek his will today and forever!


Thank you lord for your goodness and grace!

We welcome you into our dwelling place!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
