Learning...In The Woodshed!

The little glen...is empty now,
But still...the pleasant brook flows by.
The cattle graze upon the hills,
And...overhead...the hawks still fly.

Then...looking closer...one can see
The outline...where once stood the walls,
THAT brings to mind...the corner...where
The tiger lilies...grew so tall.

A stump of chimney...and the hearth
Are there...but now...with weeds o'ergrown...
Reminders of that wholesome...warmth
In days that WERE....but NOW are gone.

And, there...the springhouse used to be
Where dairy produce...in its turn
Awaited for its future fate....
For cooking...drinking....or...the churn!

The smokehouse...where the meat was hung
Was farther up the hill....THAT way,
And just beyond...the...WOODSHED...where
I learned to...DO...as Dad would SAY!

NOW...with the house...and buildings...gone,
And naught but memories...appear
I find...'twas NOT the ...PLACE...at all
But those I loved....no longer here.

Could I rebuild the friendly...home,
The springhouse.....OR A FEATHER BED!
I'd choose another trip....with DAD....
To learn of life....in his woodshed.

I wasn't WARPED by his approach,
Nor crushed by methods...HE employed.
The licks he gave me.....I DESERVED...
And NEITHER one of us....enjoyed.

If there's a better way to go
Then use it...IF YOU'RE SURE...you KNOW,
Be doubly SURE....the "NEED" you've met.....
And happy....with RESULTS you get!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
