Tell Me A Story
Tell me a story of a farmer at sunrise;
Starting a busy day of combining beans.
Feeling joy and sadness, anticipation and relief;
Of a completed harvest, a job well done.
Tell me a story about a young man on a warm summer day;
Marrying his sweetheart, starting a new life.
Sharing happy days, holding tight during storms, laughing, crying;
Forming serenity in life, praising Him for completeness.
Tell me a story about a father on a cold blustery day;
Holidays inching, kids, grand kids, and great-grand kids near.
Some quiet, some rambunctious, all healthy and strong;
The perfect blend of likes and dislikes, hopes and fears;
not one that isn't honest and true.
Tell me a story about a friend facing storms;
Unexpected changes, turmoil and loss, unsure of what to do, or how.
But lending an open ear, a helping hand, or a morsel of food;
Knowing God created us equal but not all situations alike.
Tell me a story about a man at sunset;
Wondering if he's said enough, done enough, been worthy enough.
There are still beans to sow, family to watch, friends to help;
But seeds have been sown, the harvest is in and God speaks boldly,
"Come to me son, a job well done."
