THOUGHT IT WAS MONDAY…!

Worked a Saturday shift,

Got mixed up in time just a bit…

Woke up confused–

Had I over snoozed,

Had I missed a doctor’s appointment?

Went out to our living room,

TV preachers, near noon…?

Missed church–

Left them in the lurch,

They’ll have to lead their own hymn tunes!

SUNDAY–we praise our LORD–

At church or home He’s adored…

But we confused

Miss out on Good News,

Assembling to hear God’s word!

THEM’S TRAVELING WORDS!

THEM’S TRAVELING WORDS!

 

Going on a long trip, you’ll see

What pressure it is to be…

When your loving dear’s

Been away for two years

From home and her mountain family!

Going home on shoestrings,

Being held and pushed by angel wings…

Her family would care

And help us prepare

To return with whatever Santa brings.

Then lo and behold, Friday night,

A bonus will help things aright…

Enough vacation pay

To drive her away,

And extra work that next pay will be bright!
