What a gem
She wears a fanny pack filled to the brim
With what you say?
That is our subject today
To explore its contents
celebrating each along the way
Kim wears this fanny pack on her hip
Secured tightly as not to slip
It is filled with lovely sights
And all who come close
rejoice in its delights
Zip it open
slowly to the right
It opens easily
no need for strength or might
It is accessible to the weakest and low
All are welcome to partake of the treasure trove
And what a treasure trove!
Gifts for others appear
As do words of encouragement and cheer!
And what’s this? What do my eyes behold?
Gifts finer than the purest gold!
Unpack them, shall we?
First – faith in Christ alone.
A greater grace none can know
Yet a grace Kim freely shares
With all for whom she lovingly cares
A faith that knows not boundary or wall
It stands like a mighty tower
powerful and tall
Next – The Joy of salvation abounds
There is plenty to be found
Happy children gather near
From far and wide they appear
It is the gospel of Christ they gladly hear!
Then –Love. The greatest of these.
Kim has lots of love
You will see
But it is not hers to keep
As she received it at another’s feet
Her grandmothers, mother, father, brothers, all contributed some
But from where did most of this love come?
Did you not know?
Yes! Fanny Pack Kim is not alone
A hippy named Dave traveled with her back in the day
And together they gave love away
And in back yards
In parking lots
Dressed as clowns
And with balloons
This dynamic duo
Would of the gospel
shout and croon
But Hippy Dave was too soon called away
God had need of him. To be sure! -we say
But no worries. We will see him again just any day
And you too -we all pray
Yet Fanny Pack Kim
Boldly carries on the mission
To show all children
God’s gospel vision
Once with a red, but now gray crown
She sits on a throne
Still turning frowns upside down
Proclaiming love, she doth decree -forth with!
Dispensing this through her children
And her grands
Thank you, Sarah and Meredith,
They forever abound
In this fanny pack that Kim wears around
Just look and you will discover too
That in her fanny pack
Kim has plenty of gifts for also –You!
