Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

I Love You, Johnny!

I love you, Johnny, said mother one day,

I love you more than I can say,

Then she answered his questions with,

Don’t bother me now!”

And just didn’t have time to show him how

To tie his truck to his tractor and plough,

But she washed her windows and scrubbed the floor

And baked, and cooked, and cleaned some more.

“Bring the boy next door in?” “Well, I should say not,

You’ll mess up the floors and I don’t want a spot.”

“No, we don’t have time for a story today,

Mother’s too busy cooking, so run out and play,

Maybe tomorrow,” she said with a sigh,

And Johnny went out almost ready to cry.

“I love you, Johnny,” again she said,

As she washed his face and sent him to bed.

Now how do you think that Johnny guessed

Whether ‘twas he or the house that

She really loved best?
