The Power of a Clothespin

27 Jan

Due to the day that was yesterday, I am late in post the poem that I wrote for yesterday.  Therefore, it has appeared now with the inspiration, enjoy!

I read this really cute story having to do with clothespin ministry and it inspired me to write a poem.  Here is the story posted on my facebook page.

Today our 3 year old shared her clothespin with a man sitting by himself in the waiting room. She walked up and said; “Here my friend, you are not alone.” He smiled and once he read the pin his eyes started to water and thanked her over and over. She patted his knee and said; “It’s okay, God is always gonna be with you.” and cheerfully walked away. We are so excited to make clothespins and continue this ministry! All because we saw a group passing a clothespin around at a concert. <><

Amazing, isn’t it?!  The girl is only three.  I find this story so inspiring.  After having read this, I got the inspiration for my next poem.  This is what I came up with.

Did you ever imagine

The power it could bring

A simple household item

And a message so true

Just pass it on and on

You will certainly see

A life can be changed

Just imagine one day

As you are feeling blue

Something cathes the eye

And you see it there

Such joy in surprise

This very simple thing

Someone cares for you

It must be passed on

So all may see it now

A message of love

Sent in a clothespin
