Calling all Character[s into question]

My cooking camarade and friend extraordinaire, Renee Thomas, once shared a children’s poem on her Facebook page… The Crayon Box That Talked.  What a beautiful message this collection of words brought to me ~ Please enjoy:

The Crayon Box That Talked

Shane DeRolf

While walking into a toy store the day before today
I overheard a crayon box with many things to say

“I don’t like Red!” said Yellow and Green said “Nor do I”
“And no one here likes Orange but no one knows just why”

“We are a box of crayons that doesn’t get along
Said Blue to all the others “Something here is wrong”

Well, I bought that box of crayons and took it home with me
And laid out all the colors so the crayons all could see

They watched me as I colored with Red and Blue and Green
And Black and White and Orange and every color in between

They watched as Green became the grass and Blue became the sky
The Yellow sun was shining bright on White clouds drifting by

Colors changing as they touched becoming something new
They watched me as I colored – they watched me till I was through

And when I finally finished I began to walk away
And as I did the crayon box had something more to say

“I do like Red!” said Yellow and Green said, “so do I”
And Blue you were terrific! So high up in the sky

“We are a box of crayons each one of us unique

But when we get together the picture is more complete”

john 13:34-45  I give you a new commandment—to love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 Everyone will know by this that you are my disciples—if you have love for one another.
