Ducks and Eagles

  
Ducks and Eagles
 Way up in the sky
  Eagle soars all alone
 Far from the mud below
 Flying high in the blue
 He thinks it is true
 That he’s the best bird in the show
  
 While down at the farm
  Ducky waddles along
 With his tribe by the edge of the stream
 Leading them on
 To the cool water’s edge
 Where their dirty feet 
 Can be washed clean
 
 Now that I your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet, 
you should also wash one another’s feet            
John 13:14 NIV

Late for Lunch

 
 
 Late for Lunch
  
  I’ve no questions only answers
 Ducky said to Dad one day
 I’ll show you I’m the smartest one
 Why should I do what you say?
  
 Then Raccoon heard his boast and paused
  And slyly licked his paws
  He walked down to the water’s edge
  And stood to give applause
 
 When Ducky heard the sound he looked
 And saw Raccoon’s smiling eyes
 How wise this creature Ducky thought
 To see where greatness lies
  
 But sadly by next day at noon
 Ducky didn’t show for lunch
 Where he was off to no one knew
 But his father had a hunch!
  
  
 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: 
 But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
 Proverbs 1:7 KJV

Ears

Now that we’ve been in Florida for a while I look back and remember the worst part of Winter up North was not the snow and ice but the constant grey skies with a splash of chilly wind. In light of the grey skies and chilly wind we’ve all come through in 2020 I thought I’d begin with some gentle humor in verse with hopes it will brighten your day and shine a little light on the beginning of your 2021.

 
 
 Ears

 Only ears can hear
 That’s just the way God made us
 If ears could see or hear
 They’d certainly betray us
  
 But when God fashioned ears
 Those humble awkward things
 That flop about and wiggle
 On little inner springs
  
 He made a way to tell us
 How much we’d been forgiven
 And then He set and tuned them
 To hear His words from heaven
  
 Oh - only ears can hear
 That’s just the way God made them
 Humble listening gifts
 That lead us to obey Him
