Where God Ain't!!!! Print E-mail
(0 votes)

He was just a little lad,
And on the week's first day. 
He was  wandering home from Sunday School,
And dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass;
He found a caterpillar;
He found a fluffy milkweed pod,
And blew out all the "filler."

A bird's nest in a tree o'er head
So wisely placed on high,
Was just another wonder
That caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zigzag course,
And hailed him from the lawn;
Asked him where he'd been that day,
And what was going on.

"I've been to Bible school, " he said,
And turned a piece of sod.
He picked up a wiggly worm and said,
"I've learned a lot of God."

"M'm a very fine way," the neighbor said,
"for a boy to spend his time."
"If you'll tell me where God is,
I'll give you a brand new dime."

Quick as a flash his answer came!
Nor were his accents faint. 
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister, if
You'll tell me where God ain't!"

"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed."
