What's New
Compassion and Innocence
by Juanita Pittman-Brown

Author requests article critique





Recently, I had an opportunity to write two poems about twin girls who are nine years old…They were foster children at the time I met them, and now they have been adopted…I met them through their foster-Mom…I was at Field Day with my grand-children, and I met this foster-Mom in the hallway at the school…There ensued a conversation between my grand-daughter and this Mom…In the conversation, my grand-daughter and this Mom discussed the fact that there was an upcoming Going-Away party for the twins because they were soon to be adopted…

At the time of their conversation, I felt led by God to offer to write poems for these little girls…So, I asked this Mom if she would tell about three things about the twins that I would write them each a poem for the party…In the conversation, this Mom gave me her thoughts on the girls…I then wrote the poems in the following days, and I called this foster-Mom to read them to her since I needed to be sure they were appropriate before the party…She approved the poems; however, I had flipped the poems and the personalities of the twins…So I flipped the names on the poems to match their personalities, and they were set for the girls…

Then I signed the poems, framed them, and took them to the party…My grand-children did attend the skating party, and I was there as well…It was a grand evening…The twin with the reserved personality got on her little knees and read the poem over and over as if it were a prayer…It was my great joy to be used by God to write poems about these little girls and to let them know that God sees them with love and values them highly…

While I was present at the party, my grand-son had poison-oak on his face which did not seem to be responding to over-the-counter medicine…There was a physician whom I know from my work at present…I mentioned to him about the problem my grand-son had with poison-oak, and he took the time to call the pharmacy and order him the appropriate medicine…What was so beautiful too was the fact that this physician’s wife and children waited patiently while he helped my grand-son…What a blessing…There are those in the medical profession who share compassion along their path…In addition, when I took the framed poem to the physician's office, he and his wife thanked me; however, even greater than the kind thank-you they gave me was the fact that they both took the time to pray for me...This was just prior to my being on Channel 16 WGGS in Taylors, SC...What a grand blessing before my appearance on live television...I was and am greatly blessed by their kindness and the privilege and gift of sharing with others through my writings...

It is my prayer that you are blessed by this true story…©


DR. M. B.

There are those who perform

According to the will of God --

They place emphasis upon His children

And the needs of others before their own --

It is in this fashion they are known --

They take the time and give

Of all they have to make life

A little better each and every day

And it is for compassion’s sake

They do what they do and say what they say…

There are those who will stop

The hands on the clock of man

To do God’s work and provide

In an instant the wonder of mercy

As they show compassion that others

Perhaps do not understand…

There are those who walk

And observe the needs of others

As they seek to bring compassion

To those who have a need --

They are the ones who till the soil of souls

And plant the kindness seed --

Their lives show the significance

Of living in selflessness

And it is for compassion’s sake

That others along their path are truly blessed…©

My name is J

And I have much to offer

Simply by being me --

Love is at my core

Though reserved I may appear to be --

My heart is merely

Observing to see all the world

Has to offer to a girl like me --

I tend to be quiet so that I can hear

All that passes my way --

And when I have learned

Life’s lessons I will then share

What I have learned

In the things I do and words I say --

Right now I may seem to be sheltered

More than some others may have been

But in time I will find my way

And the person I become will be

Evident for all to see then --

God told me that He created me

To let my “ little light” shine

That others may find their way --

He said for me to share my love

For love grows only

When we give it away… ©

My name is C

And I revel in the joy

Of sharing in the life

God has given me --

He said He created me

To be loving and outgoing

That others can see

The beauty He placed within --

He said He created me

To let my “little light” shine

That others could see

And be drawn to Him in time --

He said He placed in me

A love of roller-skating

And horses to fill my heart

To remind me of His love

And devotion to me as His child --

He said that if I feel alone

To simply look up at the beauty

Of the heavens He placed there for me

And I will smile --

He said He placed in me

The love of others and rays

Of sunshine that spread across the day --

But most of all He told me to keep

My hands open and not to hold

On to love too tightly

For it grows only

When we give it away…©

Recently, I was on WGGS in Taylors, S.C., and it was an honor for me to be a part of the program…On the program, there was a choir from Duncan, S.C.; and they are called The Celebration Choir…The Pastor of the Church is Pastor Lamar McAbee…I was richly blessed by their music and passion as they shared and praised the Lord…All seemed to flow together as the Body Of Christ during the program…How blessed…

Then after the broadcast, I was told about a very nice man from my past who knew a man I loved…This man had seen me on the television show, and he had mentioned to someone who told me that he had seen me on the program…He too was very complimentary…He had no ulterior motives, and because of his sheer kindness, I went by to thank him for his consideration…I was the one blessed for my stopping by to personally thank him…I think he was surprised that I had come by, but he seemed pleased…He was so very kind to take time out of his day to share some time with me…What a priceless gift is the gift of time...

I was enormously blessed to spend time with a man named Dan…©


A man named Dan

Blessed me today --

I stopped by

And he went

Out of his way

To share the gift

Of time with me

And with this gift

I was the one

Who became

The recipient

Of his generosity…

Written in honor

With song we raise our voices

To praise our Father and to honor

His holy name --

With words of adoration

We give thanks

That He removed our shame --

We sing of joy unspeakable

And what is yet to come --

We shower Him with praise

For He is the holy one…

With blended voices

And chosen words sprinkled

With His mercy and His love

We share our hearts

As angels carry our praises

To our Father above --

We sing of His mercy

And His ever-present grace --

For it is with thankfulness

We share our joy that then soars

Across heavenly space…

With voices in unison

We look to heaven

To express our love with song

For we know for certain

To whom we belong --

In the timeless moment

Of praise we find peace within

As we give thanks for release

From the bondage of sin --

We sing of His glory

We will see when we sing

In His heavenly choir

For all eternity…

Written in honor

Of The Celebration Choir
