TITLE: A VISIT TO THE WHITEHOUSE, or WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

We’re going to the Whitehouse!
I surely need a new dress.
In case I meet the President,
I want to look my very best!
No he didn’t get my ballot vote,
But, he’s the President of our Nation.
I really owe him my respect;
Because of his special station.
A couple days from today,
We’re going to find a church.
Just ‘cause I’m in Washington,
I can’t leave Jesus in the lurch!
Of course I am away from home.
No one will care just how I dress.
I may wear jeans or even shorts.
Who’ll care if I look a mess?
And then, I think for a moment,
God is the King of this Universe!
When it was just a President,
I almost had to rehearse!
How could I have viewed my Savior,
Not worthy of my very best?
He gave His very life for me!
How did I expect to be blessed?
I know He’s interested in my heart,
But, what do my thoughts really say?
He is the One I’m worshipping,
And I’d forgotten that today.
Dear Lord, forgive my disrespect.
Thank-you for convicting my heart.
May I never take you for granted,
Nor from this conviction, depart.
No, I don’t care what others think,
Nor even what they seem to do.
But as for me, and my household,
We’ll continue to honor You!
