Country Churches

Poem By Marilyn Lott

Worshiping in Country Churches
Are different it seems to me
Folks so friendly toward one another
In a small and warm community

And, I don’t know, seems like God
Has an easier time listening
Folks slow down just a bit
Take a little time for reminiscing

They aren’t so all-fired busy
Their schedules aren’t as cluttered
And when they come together
Their prayers are softly muttered

Yes, God is everywhere
And you don’t need church to pray
But a small Country Church
Seems like such a gentle way

And don’t you enjoy their appearance?
And their rustic sense of style?
I love to stop and talk to God
In a Country Church for a little while

The stillness of a country moment
A sermon in the morning hush
Folks gather together on Sunday
There doesn’t seem to be such a rush

So if you’re from a big city
Or just doing a religious search
Drive out into the country
And discover a Country Church!

A Child’s Mind

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew

3 White Ducks

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

A Common Man

He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

A Chat With The Lord

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord
I tell Him just what has been bothering me
I know He understands and He will see

A Cat Named Frank

He is a beautiful kitty cat
Frank is his name
And around the barnyard
He has risen to fame

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too
A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice
So many choices that we can pursue
