This will be my best day ever for the holidays have come
I’ve got to mind my little sister, but I’ll dump her and just run
I’ll take her to the bus stop and give the driver all my cash
While I tell him to drive her to the end and then bring her back.

Oh darn it! Now she’s crying as the bus has pulled away
You can bet she’ll dob me in to Mum and I’ll be shut away
‘Time out’ will be inside my room and I’ll be bored to death
While I hear my poor Dad saying “You know you’re wasting your breath”.

I’ve heard my Mom tell God on me and I wonder what He thought
I’m always in trouble for not doing what I ought
I think I hear Him chuckle when He looks down on me
For I know Jesus also had a sister or three.

I really like this one, as I can imagine the Lord looking down on all of His children and chuckling at our antics. He had to have a sense of humor when He created us! Blessings!

Interesting and humorous the way they talk about God.
This is a gift and I appreciate it.
I am Brazilian and I loved finding your blog.
May your life be always full of freshness of grace, kindness, love and joy of God is our strength.

Thank you Cynthia, Yes God does have a sense of humour and He has played a joke on me more than once!

God bless,

I love the way children think and talk, Denise. They are so forthright and uncomplicated.
