Grandpa's Front Door
From the backseat of the Country Squire
The children all at once shout:
"Are we there yet? Is it time to get out?"
"Remember?" dad must assuredly say
"All the signs along the way?"

Windows, windows, all around
Searching, searching, without a sound,
Trying to see both right and left
Like changing channels on a tv set.

Mountains that rise up so high
One river comes so very nigh,
The sound of many snorting hogs
Farms guarded by barking dogs.

Little white houses line the road
A right turn at the statue toad,
Then it's up, up the big ol' hill
And left past the lumber mill.

At the end of the cul-de-sac
Sits grandma's old pink Cadillac,
So, like I said, many times before
Wipe your feet on the welcome mat,
before entering grandpa's front door.

Matthew 24:32
"...when you see all these things,
know that it is near; at the doors!"

Matthew 24:42
"Watch...for you do not know what hour
your Lord is coming."

Matthew 24:44
"...be ready, for the Son of Man is
coming at an hour you do not expect."

Matthew 25:13
"Watch...for you do not know the day nor
the hour the Son of Man is coming."
