We are all the same!

When the kids were little, they loved the Shel Silverstein books that we read to them. The illustrations were a bit funky, but still they liked them. Tonight I will share one of the poems he wrote that I really like. It  reminds us of our worth, and no matter what we look like or our financial situation is...we are all the same worth and value to God! What a great reminder!

P.S.  I almost forgot, my granddaughter is doing much better, and so thanks to all of you for your prayers and calls. We will get the results of all the tests tonight or tomorrow hopefully. Gee, it is hard to watch these little ones be sick! Good night!

No difference

Small as a peanut,
Big as a giant,
We're all the same size
When we turn off the light.
Rich as a sultan,
Poor as a mite,
We're all worth the same
When we turn off the light.
Red, black or orange,
Yellow or white,
We all look the same
When we turn off the light.
So maybe the way
To make everything right
Is for God to just reach out
And turn off the light!
