My Family Tree

My family tree grew Mount Calvary

As my heavenly Father looked on, they crucified his only son

They pierced his side and his precious blood began to flow

In the shadow of the cross my family tree began to grow

He adopted me as one of his own and made me heir to a kingdom

that someday I will call home

Even now I am beginning to see the Father in me

His royal blood now flows through my veins,

For I’m a blood bought child of the king

Now each time I trace my family tree it always leads me

 back to Mount Calvary.

    You and I have the same family tree. Praise God we are related because of Mount Calvary. Excellent poem. I'd like to get to know you.

    nicely done. i don't think i would have thought to put God or Jesus at the top of my family tree. I like how you described it, a unique spin on "heir to a kingdom" :)

    Passionately Written piece. Very touching and mind opening in how you wrote it.

    wow, a very deep and symbolic spiritual poem. Better than the usual because you said something familiar in a unique and inspired way!

    What a wonderful family tree to claim. Very nice Lori. I see you have only been on the site for about 5 or six months. That is why I have not found you before. Very nice addition to our pages. Love, Joyce
