Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

Where there is...


Where there is hatred;
Let us show Christ's love,
shining downward upon us,
from heaven's lofty heights above.

Where there is war;
Let us promote peace on
earth, and good will
towards all men. A-men!

May all mankind believe
in the brotherhood of man
and woman.

Where there is hunger;
Let us provide food
for the hungry,
and hope for the hopeless.

And then The Lord Most
High will truly bless us!

Where there are homeless;
Let us provide shelter
from the storms of life.

And let us show them
the pathway to eternal life
in our beloved Lord and
Savior- Jesus Christ!

Where there is famine
and poverty;
Let us show compassion
and mercy.

Let us lend them a helping
hand even though
we might not understand.
They endure suffering
and pain, it is all too
plain to us.

Where is under employment,
or unemployment;
Let us provide job
training and opportunties
throughout all of our
comunities.

Where there are lost souls;
They are more precious
to God than silver or gold.

Let us lead them unto:
the way, the truth,
and the light to
eternal life! A-men.

Love in Christ Jesus!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
