Summer's Dream

Softly sharing a Dream is born.
Words are spoken, passion revealed.
Rolling hills, gentle breeze, long dusty road.
Fence to repair, cows and calves across the horizon.
Hay is down, freshly mown.
A house, the barn, sheds abound.
Tractors, wagons, machinery, men at work.
A friendly wave, a bus arrives, souls to reach.
Frightened children search for hope, the Dream.
Skills to learn, jobs to do.
A quiet voice, a gentle touch, a loving hug.
Warm embrace, all are welcome, nothing held back.
Days go by, trust is born, Seeds are planted.
Prayers go forth, Christ's love discovered, freely given.
Memories of days gone by, now forgotten.
Lives are changed, Angels sing, close to God all become.
Softly spoken a Dream is born, passion revealed...
Dreams are Real, God is Love, the search is over.
Home at last you are here...
The Welcome Home Ranch.
