Our Creative Friends


You are black,

I am white,

We are people!

You live here,

I live there,

We are people!

You believe this,

I believe that,

We are people!

You give hugs,

I give hugs,

We are people!

You love me,

I love you,

We are people!

Up in the clouds

North of the world


End of the day

Tilting down.

God’s Love

A dream in your pocket,

A wish in your shoe,

A rainbow to wear,

And a moonbeam or two.

A smile on your face,

And a star in your hair,

Hope today helps you know

That God’s love is there.

My Brother

My brother is an elder.

He’s down in Ecuador.

He loves to preach the gospel

To people rich and poor.

The food is really different.

The country’s super hot.

The people all speak Spanish,

So he’s learning quite a lot.

My brother is my hero.

I hope to be like that.

To serve my Heavenly Father,

Like my big brother Matt.
