The Big Porch

When little ones surround us or come say hello and share their days,

We can but offer rapt attention! Habits are from mentors’ time-worn ways.

Thank you, Lord! How grateful we are that they climb the walk to our front door!

What? A new feather? A sticker? A toy? Our porch can hold them all and more!

Every home should have a porch to welcome hearts in big and small.

Some banisters to climb on for the ones not yet too tall!

A bit of late day sunshine just to warm a back or two;

A glass of wine and laughter linking grateful hearts to You.
