THE LORD CLEANED MY COMPUTER
(or arranged it!)
To say that God cleaned it
Is to say He arranged the act…
There is no doubt that without His clout
I once again would have been smacked.
The on-line guy never called back
So I was left in the lurch…
I asked Pastor for prayer and
He and others prayed right in church.
My neighbor introduced me to the man who
Had been fixing computers a while…
He didn’t upload what I wanted,
But left me with a smile.
He did as he’d normally done,
Cleaned and set things up right…
So now I’m safer with protection besides
And the cost was much less of a fright!
The Lord in His mercy sent someone along,
Of that I am entirely convinced…
If I had gone with my original plan,
The bank account would have winced!
ADMITTING MY SIN
(As part of the problem)
Tool of the devil may be,
But much of the evil’s from me…
E’en by a token,
From motives done selfishly.
Got back on Ebay
And spent in other ways…
Bank’s in a hole–
Sin takes a toll–
Leaving him in a haze.
With God’s help worked through
And out of his boiling hot stew…
Enough to see
Depends on sin confessed, too!
AN EARTH DAY TRILOGY
(of political and ecological opinion)
Presidents using Air Force One
Must consider ecology dung…
For Republican rips,
Shows where his heart’s clung.
On the Washington Mall,
Earth Day parties shared it all…
The movement’s gone weird,
The way they left things appalled!
Put trash out the night before
Helps strong winds litter more…
Why people do
Clean up after you,
You don’t pay enough for the chore!

HE’S A CONFIRMED LOCAL TRAIN FAN
He thought he had a good deal,
A theme with more appeal…
But–he wanted a train
Listen to those wheels squeal!!!!!
