Habitat Homeowner - Jeremy

We love Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanner builds for a lot of reasons:
  • We get to see different parts of the country
  • We meet great people
  • We make new friends
  • We like the work and learning about building
And ~
  • We meet new homeowners and see how thankful and grateful they are
On Tuesday, Jeremy and his wife Michele showed up at the job site as we were gathering for our morning meeting and devotions.
Jeremy and Michele are Habitat homeowners who live in the neighborhood.  He wanted to stop by and share one of his poems with us.  He says he always associates his poems with Scripture.  He gave me his permission to share this one with you:

Building Homes Changes Life
by Jeremy Klingbile

Looking at your future
How can your needs be met?
So high and so many,
And a deep endless debt.

You're looking for a house,
The greatest need of all.
A place you can call home,
Not too big or too small.

You have found your new home,
But it's no where around.
Who would have ever guessed
It would start from the ground?

They come from all places,
Together they are a team.
When they build you your home,
They also build a dream.

Some are complete strangers,
Some family and friends too.
Each one is so special
With all they do for you.

You give thanks to them all
For playing their own part.
Their names will forever
Be engrained in your heart.

It is a program with life
Filled with caring and love.
It builds hope for others
While praising Him above.


We started off our day with some new inspiration.

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles.  Hope you are having a good August!  Until next time...
