I Know of an Old Fashioned Family

I Know Of An Old Fashioned Family!


There’s a family I know,  that may seem old fashioned.

But they serve others from a heart of compassion!


They don’t have much in the scope

 of entertainment.

But they had each other,

 and much contentment.


They have a love for God that comes from within!

And are thankful to the Lord

 for being their friend!


They don’t get too involved with that the world brings.

They have each others love. 

They have everything!


This family has been an inspiration to others too!

By their giving hearts, in much of what they do!


This family has a commitment to serve God above.

And have asked Jesus to fill them with his love!


This may seem old fashioned,

not to have a lot of things…

But they know their Lord

and the love that he brings!


I’m thankful to know them and their Godly inspiration…

I extend to them a heart of thanks  and appreciation!


Please dear Lord, bless and keep them in your arms!

Be with them Jesus, and protect them from harm!


May the blessings of God keep

flowing through them!

And may the peace and joy of God

continue to be with them!

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!
