Inclusive: a to z of children's work

Everyone's invited
Received and welcomed
Everyone's included
Tended and nurtured

Everyone's required
Asked and answered
Everyone's intended
Valued and loved

Everyone's our mission
Even if we don't know them
Everyone's important
God completely loves them


I've struggled with this poem for the letter I in my a to z of children's work.  I don't think it's about any fear about the subject but more about the importance of the requirement to be completely inclusive.

I like the line "Everyone's intended." Lots to ponder there.

This was really intriquing.

I enjoyed the philosophy of your writing here.

And I share your sentiments!

Thank you for sharing.
