Love in a Barn
I know a special family with hearts so kind and big
they took a place designed to harbor chickens, cows and pigs;
and through the labor of their love, transformed a dormant space,
so friends and strangers both alike could find a welcome place.
Just step across their threshold and you'll know that you're accepted;
by-passers (even crashers) are received as if expected.
Their door is always open, people come to sleep or dine,
or drop by just to say "hello" and spend some friendly time.
Because they live the love of Christ, that welcomes low or high,
this family's found a way, at home, to let their light so shine.
Oh sure, it ain't no Taj Mahal, nor villa on the M?rne;
but those can't match the love we've found, while living in a Barn.
To Len & Claudia Kruse and Family,
on behalf of the Naselli Family, "Barn Guests" February 28 - May 31, 2002,
with unspeakable gratitude for your Christlike generosity
in opening your home to us, and opening our eyes to God's heart of love and acceptance.
