The Christmas Puppy

 Many and many a year ago, In a city bleak and dark, A Christmas miracle began one night With a hungry puppy’s bark.

He was too careless to mind his mom; So one day in the chilly fall, The puppy wandered away from her And now had no home at all.

Alone he’d lived

Prayer for Help with the Weather

Dear Father in Heaven,

How Faithful is the Lord

How Faithful is the Lord

I don’t understand the Lord—

No person really can.

The nature of his being

Is beyond the scope of man.

He came from a void of nothing

To create all space and time;

He made the skies and heaven

And he made the sun to shine;.

And he made

In Indiana

The trees in Indiana

Form bowers over our roads,

Shades of green in summer

And in autumn reds and golds.

There is nothing I like more

On roads that are so pleasant

I’m in no rush to arrive.

In the woods that crowd the roads

There are turkeys, squirrels and

The Love of God

There is a fact of mankind

Having great effect on all;

Each person is included

Lowly men and men of awe.

Only those who know it well

Value it enough—

Everyone who ever fell

Out of harmony with men

Going down the road to sin.

Oh Brother hear this

 But your weeping will rise from inside

 So please accept the urge to weep

For your dear one who
