A great poem by Kathy Boecher at A Time To Share! Not only does it speak to me because of my house (I’ll let the percolate in your imagination–even This Old House experts might be challenged here…) but mostly because of the redemption message that is deeply embedded yet thinly veiled for those who know the grace of our Lord Jesus. And, as always, the fab painting is by her talented husband, Paul.

A LITTLE HOUSE
A little house stands all alone, no people left inside,
There once was life within that house and laughter did abide,
The windows are now boarded up, the grass is overgrown,
The roof is battered, walls need paint, some love needs to be sown,
A fixer upper, yes indeed, but still a strong foundation,
Where walls can once again be filled with strong determination.
