There's a lovely little story
Of five children and their Dad
Who play 'sardines' in the dark
It truly makes them glad

The lights go out, while Daddy hides
Each child to find his den
Then one by one, they squeeze in, quiet
Like sardines in a tin

Now tiny Lucy is real scared
So when Daddy sees her near
He calls out softly, "Here I am"
Which dispels her every fear

In she scoots, snug, with a sigh
As he whispers, love you so
He cared about his littlest one
(The older ones would know)

She really thought she'd found his spot
But 'twas Daddy drew her in
His gentle loving was the call
That brought her heart within

And that is how our Father is
He calls to those alone
Each one who searches close, He sees
And draws them to His home

It is the secret to be found
Why each is gently sought
How some will come to know the Lord
And by His love are drawn

Soft whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2007

"I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,
and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion."
It does not, therefore, depend on man's desire or effort,
but on God's mercy....
He did this to make the riches of His glory known
to the objects of His mercy, whom He prepared in advance for glory,
even us, whom He also called
Romans 9: 15,16,23,24
