Family Buoys

The lobsterman plunges his trap beneath the tide,
And waits to see the lobster stride.
For the stories to be told
Of generation after generation’s gold.
It’s our way of embracing the provision of God,
As year after year our hearts nod.
He is willing and able,
To keep our family stable.
As our colors float,
To identify our family boat,
We say thank you, thank you,
As we wait and watch for what You do!
Ephesians 3:14-15: “For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,15 For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].”
