Sunday Blessing: Ma and God

Sunday’s blessing comes from the book “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein. Told from the voice of a child, trying to understand his world, Shel reminds us how confusing it is to be a kid. God and mom and dirt are discussed and pondered with humor, and a sense of the absurdity, that comes along with having been both child, and a parent. May these simple words bring a smile to your face, and warmth to your heart.

MA AND GOD

God gave us fingers- Ma says, “Use your fork.”
God gave us voices- Ma says, “Don’t scream.”
Ma says eat broccoli,cereal and carrots.
But God gave us tasteys for maple ice cream.

God gave us fingers- Ma says, “use your hanky.”
God gave us puddles- Ma says.”Don’t splash.”
Ma says, “Be quiet, your father is sleeping.”
But God gave us garbage can covers to crash.

God gave us fingers- Ma says, “Put your gloves on.”
God gave us raindrops- Ma says, “Don’t get wet.”
Ma says be careful, and don’t get too near to
those strange lovely dogs that God gave us to pet.

God gave us fingers- Ma says, “Go wash ‘em.”
But God gave us coal bins and nice dirty bodies.
And I ain’t too smart, but there is one thing for certain-
Either Ma’s wrong or else God is.
