I Would Gather Children

Some would gather money along the path of life.

Some would gather roses, and rest from worldly strife.

But I would gather children from among the thorns of sin.
I would seek a golden curl, and a freckled, toothless grin.

For money cannot enter in that land of endless day,
And roses that are gathered soon will wilt along the way.

But, oh, the laughing children as I cross the sunset sea,
And the gates swing wide to heaven,
I can take them in with me!

I have had this poem on our wall for many years, I love how
it gives perspective to life, especially as a mom.  It's so easy to get
caught up in this earthly life and forget about eternity
and what's really important-
