God’s Global Barnyard

Day 27 prompt: barns

My daughters

Brought them home

From Sunday School last week

 

Two barns

Some assembly required

Lightweight cardboard, tabbed and folded

 

Roof-top lettering

Declares these structures

Part of God’s Global Barnyard

 

Coin slots

Invite spare change

And we’ve been making deposits

 

Little girls

Who normally stockpile

Coins for candy store investments

 

Are giving

To fight hunger

And poverty around the world

 

The money

Will buy animals

For people we’ll never meet

 

Feed them

Start a business

Give them life and hope

 

Heavy now

Our barn banks

Hold several dollars in change

 

Small gifts

From young stewards

Fill stomachs, pockets and hearts
