CONNECTED
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

We are connected, you and I..
Like Wind and Rain and Earth and Sky..
We are joined by Heart and Soul
Created from God's Earthen mold;

We daily grow through Thought and Deed
God's Holy Love is our Seed..
Nurtured by our Faith and Love
Blessed by Guidance from above;

We are Light and Laughter, Joy..
We are Man, Woman, Girl and Boy
And we each Sing and Mourn and Weep
And what we sow we also Reap;

Connected by our Sacred Breath
We all share Life and suffer Death..
So we must Nurture one another
For we all are Sister, Brother;

Not Country, Religion, even Race
Should cause us Hate nor bring Disgrace
One blood are we, one Heart to beat
All gathered 'round Lord Jesus feet;

We are connected, you and I
Kin to those who run, who fly
To all God's Creatures on this Sod
We are all Children of God....
