I Would Gather Children

From Melanie Blank:

Some of your sermons recently have reminded me of this poem. Just thought I'd share it.

"Some would gather money along the path of life.
Some would gather roses and rest from worldly strife.
But I would gather children, from among the thorns of sin
I would seek a golden curl and a freckled grin.
For money cannot enter in that land of endless day
and the roses that are gathered soon wilt along the way.
But oh the laughing children as I cross the sunset sea
and the gates swing wide to heaven I can take along with me."

In Christ,
Melanie

Thanks for sharing that, Melanie!
