These countries have never been on my “ports of call”.
But, I have visited many different, new places;
And without exception, I’ve really loved them all!
I’ve dreamed of visiting the beautiful land, Australia;
Hearing of many gorgeous things that are over there.
Yet, seeing live kangaroos, hopping and running so free,
Would be an answer to some questions, and my prayer.
I’ve seen pictures of their babies, peaking from mother’s pouch;
And I wonder how “Mom” can carry them about.
How much gravel do they leave in their own untidy room,
Carried in on baby’s feet, hopping in and out?
And, what if they get the “sniffles”, and cough from a bad cold,
Or, cut their foot as they hop outside the pouch fold?
Does papa kangaroo help with all of those dilemmas?
Please answer my questions, if I may be so bold!
I know my God cares for them, whether here, or whether there;
Because He created each one for a reason,
And He never makes an error or the smallest mistake.
Giving each of us special animals and seasons.
So, if I never get to see Australia’s special land
Or any of the wonders that are over there,
I’ll rest in the security of my trust in our God,
And just leave all my thoughts and questions, in His care!
