pricing their gift

nothing held back
what was given
not putting a price
on the gifts of the people
a harvest, a bounty
of unwanted things
given to be used
for those who have need
pricing their gift
missing the point
a gift of grace
to be shared with the world
our neighbors, the people
those close to us
a reflection, a blessing
giving of God’s love

yard sale
October 13, 2012
preparing for “Grace Abounds Day”,
the day before our yard sale, where we are going to
give things away to those who have been identified
by the local welfare offices as being in need
