Children come to Shepherd’s Gate from all backgrounds imaginable. The Lord has blessed us with a trained staff who accept these kids unconditionally. In time they come to experience love and joy. And they begin to laugh and wonder like precious ones who are healing by God’s amazing grace. Here is a poem written by Jenifer, our child-care supervisor. I recently found this in one of our older newsletters and was so touched I wanted to share it with you. Children Come
They come in hurting, Abused, Neglected, Needing love. Jesus loves me this I know For the bible tells me so. People say they are autistic, ADHD, Mean, They need love I say. Jesus loves me this I know For the bible tells me so. They come from disorder, Chaos, Confusion, They need consistency, Order, And love. Jesus loves me this I know For the bible tells me so. Within a few weeks or sometimes days, They are smiling, Singing, And listening. Jesus loves me this I know For the bible tells me so. So many times I have seen Their eyes brighten when I walk in the room Running over to give me a hug. Jesus loves me this I know For the bible tells me so.Are there poems or scripture that especially encourage you? Please leave them as a comment here so we can share with our residents. Your words will mean so much.
