CHURCH HISTORY

Do not know much but what I know,

What I know I share!

Used to make a buck or two

In places here and there!

.

.

Four cents a word or six or eight

(Whatever house you pick.)

‘Ideals’ paid more than any other

But then you are up the creek!

.

.

Cannot write what you want to write

Just soft soap, sweet and fair,

But now I am free to write about

What I want!  So there!

.

.

Now that was long ago, you know,

Like, after I won W. W. II.

A five-church circuit what I had to do!

Like not much else to do!

.

.

But fish around fine farmer ponds,

Like, Iowa has lots!

Find shade, take it easy,

If no trees, it is hot!

.

.

Yep, five of them, they were pretty small!

But treated them like a crowd!

Pound the pulpit!  Face gets red!

You come off pretty loud!

.

.

One church on Monday nights,

Eight ladies heard The Word each week

All were past their prime.

But if I meet them all in heaven

That will be just fine!

.

.

Soon graduate to only two

There is time to visit some,

Get to know the people more

Know where they all come from!

.

.

Had a fine church in Ventura!

Daughter came front and got saved!

I prayed with her that day of days!

That is all there is to say!

.

.

In heaven, hopefully, I will meet

A few more full of smiles!

“Thank you!”  “No, thank The Lord!”

I will know it all worthwhile!

.

.

All my kids and grandkids saved!

Great grand’s?  Give them time!

Know what?  Keep praying, that is what counts!

They will turn out just fine!
