“Mommy”, said the little girl
“will you please read this book?”
Mom knew it was the three pigs
she didn’t even have to look.
“Once upon a time” she began
as so many times before
with her daughter wearing a smile
while comfy seated on the floor.
“What funny names” said the girl
as her mother started to read
without missing even a word
with a nod to show she agreed.
“The hair on my chin” brought laughter
as did the “ I’ll huff and puff.”
She acted as if she was surprised
as the wolf blew down all the stuff.
I thought we should be like this child
when the bible stories we hear
and when we read of miracles
we should stand up as we cheer.
Jesus said we must be like children
as we face each coming day
trying to mature in our faith
so we can learn to obey.
“In the beginning” the story starts
we can get comfy in our chair
and hear with newness each story
even though it was always there.
