This is why we do what we do. Clarence James Rogers read this to us all at one of our events, and while there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, there also wasn’t a face that didn’t have a smile on it. This is what it’s all about. Everyone wants a place to call home, some dignity, a purpose. For those that may not be able to read the poem, in it’s formatted size, the entire poem is listed below:
The Least to be Leased
For all those days, when you just wanted to stay at home, but managed to negotiate your release from your beds, two-handed grip; Thank You!
For all those days, when you may have felt, overworked, underpaid, and under-appreciated, you weren’t. Thank you!
For every time you look past a client and did not what you wanted to do, but what was required, thank you! It’s really why you were hired.
“Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart”. Of Gods bigger purpose and better plan, you are all an integral part.
For every time the sunshine comes through “My blinds”, because you all made it possible to sign on the dotted line, I am flooded with God’s love, grace, mercy, comfort and peace of mind. Thank you!
You can believe this by faith, and know that it’s true; The angels are rejoicing, the heavenly hosts are happy, as God smiles down on you.
There may not be a lot of visible evidence on earth, so, from the physical equation, remove the way you feel. For the love you all demonstrate to the “Least of these,” with God, it’s a big deal.
You are all unsung heroes, on the frontline, in the war against poverty and homelessness. Thank you, I love you, God Bless! For you and your families, I pray the best in health, happiness and success.
