Cherish The Children (please read description) by 


Children love, they laugh, they care.
Children, bless them, they know how to share.
Children try hard to be what you want,
Sometimes they can’t and they start
To cry, that’s when a hug or a
Kiss is the tool, no not a spanking
That’s not the rule.
Children do good and children do bad,
Children are happy and children are sad.
Children must walk before they
Can run, all of us wake to the
Bright morning sun.
So cherish the children these
Treasures from God, for without
Them the Earth would be nothing
But water and sod.
Written by Dewey Nixon

    Good for you Marie, for creating some artwork to donate to the Children of Haiti. My heart is so heavy for what is happening there now. and it absolutely boggles my mind to think of the thousands of orphans there…. I wish them bright and healthy futures..

  • My heart goes out to these people and especially the children. Thank you for commenting:)
