Homemade with Love | Darcy Kolander

Timeless poetry
God’s Wheel | Shel Silverstein
God says to me with kind of a smile,
“Hey, how would you like to be God for awhile And steer the world?”
“OK,” says I, “I’ll give it a try.
Where do I set?
How much do I get?
What time is lunch?
When can I quit?”
“Gimme back that wheel,” says God. “I don’t think you’re quite ready yet.”
 
‘Come Lord Jesus | Brian Hoefs ‘Come Lord Jesus
Be our guest’ is our simple prayer request
Taught by those who came before To farm the land and fight the wars.
Humble people Filled with pride While hardships Tore them up inside
Some lost their sight some lived for years. Some battled cancer and lived in fear.
Grandmas, Grandpas, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins and Parents Gave us the chance
To learn and live and to belong
To a family Unbendable strong.
So as we end
Our simple prayer One small addition We’d like to share.
‘Let these gifts
To us be blessed’ And thanks for those Who with you rest.
