God's Provision


Our new apartment is very nice

But surely is quite small.

The boxes in the bedroom

Number fifty 'long the wall.


Only one bedroom,

Only one bath,

An extremely small kitchen,

A narrow path.


No room for guests

Except on the floor.

And then not many,

Not more than four.


God gave us this home.

As always He's able

To give us a roof

And food on the table.


We can adapt to most anything

If we just keep this in mind,

God's provision is always enough

No matter how much or what kind.
