If we have enough to eat that is a miracle.

We are in the middle of a war, but the war is not being fought over here on our streets. Please pray for our leaders, as they have many decisions to make each day that are very difficult.

And in all the things we are going through, maybe it will help to reflect on the events that happened to some children during and after World War II.

Blurred Vision


When the bombs came down

There in Blitzkrieg town

Dust was everywhere

In my eyes and hair


Blurred vision


It was dark at night

Very scary sight

With all their power and might

We put up a fight


Blurred vision


Soon my Mom was gone

And it wasn’t long

Before my Dad was too

What was I to do


Blurred vision


Then the Allies came

And no more the flame

Lit the sky at night

Filling us with fright


Blurred vision


They set up the tents

Where the children went

While they rebuilt

Buildings all but silt


Blurred vision


No one slept at night

Though the moon was bright

Though the bombing ceased

And now there was peace


Blurred vision


Till one day they heard

That the children feared

That the sun would rise

And bring hunger cries


Blurred vision


So each child was fed

Just a slice of bread

And they held it near

To take away their fear


Blurred vision


And all through the night

Till the morning light

They held their slice of bread

While they slept in bed.


Clear vision

They could see

With the tears of hunger gone

The night wasn’t so long

And a child could sing a song



Blurred vision


    After World War II in London, the orphans couldn’t sleep at night as they were cared for by the Allies. It was found that they were afraid that they wouldn’t have any bread in the morning when they woke up – they would be hungry. So the Allies gave each child a piece of bread to hold through the night and they could sleep fine.


    “Why do you work so hard for what is not bread, and spend your wages on what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance.”


    Isaiah 55:2


    After people really go without necessities, they begin to learn what actually satisfies.

    Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never hunger.”

    John 6:35

    “Incline your ear and come to me. Listen, that you may live…”


    Isaiah 55:3


    When you are afraid, when you can’t sleep at night, take out His word and start reading in Isaiah chapter 40 and keep going till you fall asleep. It is like the children, who held close their slice of bread till morning.
