“It’s yucky here!” the speaker said.
Her friend with her agreed.
It was much less than perfect,
But in truth it met our need:

A need for peace and safety
And a little bit of rest.
We found just what we needed,
Though it had not been “THE BEST”.

The things within seemed sad to be
Of use in such a place,
And one thing even fell and rolled
Until I gave it chase.

I chased it, caught it, put it back
Where it had been to serve:
So needed even in this place
Beneath” what it “deserved”.

I pondered this as once again
I headed to my car:
The God Who made us want us to
BE USEFUL WHERE WE ARE.
