I remember wantin’ a
pair of Dale Evans’ cowgirl boots.I
didn’t have tha’ money ‘n Mamma ‘n Daddy didn’t either.I prayed that if it was alright with God for
me ta’ get tha' boots, ta’ help me find a way ta’ get ‘em.
Mamma has a shoebox
full of memories. She has me 'n my sister's first hair ribbons, a watch
that Daddy got her after tha' war, 'n lots of pictures 'n little things that mean somethin'
special ta' her. She calls it her 'treasure chest'. Do ya' have a treasure chest
of special things?
Is God Ever Silent? Have ya' ever been frustrated 'bout somethin'? I think we can all say YES. How many times have ya' talked ta' God 'bout 'em 'n ya' felt He'd forgottin' ya'? You're not hearin' from Him when ya' think ya' otta' be. God is silent!
Every time I'm
at tha' beach, I remember, when I was little, Daddy would take me 'n my sister
out in tha' ocean ta' ride tha' waves. He held me in one arm 'n my sister in tha' other. As
long as Daddy was holdin' me, I felt safe.
Growin' up we had some big oak trees in our back yard. Me 'n my best friend, Molly Sue, loved ta' play
under 'em in tha' summer, 'cause they gave a lot 'a shade. Molly Sue's first boyfriend carved a heart on tha' tree that's still there taday.
