ORIGINAL ART AND POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
A coat of many colors, a gift from dad to son.
Each shade revealed the pleasure in work that God had done,
The tapestry of color with hand stitched threads of gold,
and greens and reds and royal hues was something to behold,
But in that coat lay jealousy from brothers so much older,
They couldn’t quite get past it, their envy turned them colder,
Their plot to do away with him, just wasn’t meant to be,
For God had other plans for them, as He does for you and me,
In dark encounters that we face through this brief expedition,
He shapes us and refines us and gives us definition,
He weaves His Word within our hearts and colors every seam,
He shows compassion to the lost, He shows us how to dream.
