I hate to miss church but I should stay in bed.
Our Saturday picnic was quite a success,
But now I’m exhausted from all of the stress.
I think I feel better; it’s just ten o’clock.
Perhaps I can still meet my friends at the dock.
A cool morning sailing is just what I need.
Of course, I could still bring my Bible to read.
God understands all and He’s patient and kind;
If I skip church Sunday, I’m sure He won’t mind.
I’ll make it up to Him, next Sunday for sure,
If I finish painting my lawn furniture
Last Sunday was baseball, the championship game.
The Sunday before that my relatives came.
I guess I’ve been missing a Sunday or two,
But sometimes it’s muggy and hot in that pew.
My pastor called twice and I must call him back.
I know he will question my spiritual slack.
“It’s just a small fever,” I said on the phone.
“Each summer I catch it, it seems I am prone.”
