Expect the unexpected......

Postby rabiya » Sun Oct 19, 2008 5:51 pm



Just two little boys
walking down a dusty lane.....
They came upon this old white house..
with broken window panes


Expect the unexpected......


The paint was faded, the shine was gone...
the grass had grown so high....
still they made their little feet
go see what was inside.


Expect the unexpected......


They opened up the squeaky door
and then it came to light....
This must have been an old church house...
once upon a time.


Expect the unexpected......


., dusty wooden pews...
a pulpit that still stood...
A Bible laid upon it....
though the pages weren't too good.


Expect the unexpected......


An offering plate and song books too...
were lying on the floor.
They must have left this old church fast...
the day they closed these doors.


Expect the unexpected......


And over in the corner...
a piano was still there.
it must have played a pretty tune..
but I guess nobody cared.


Expect the unexpected......


So little Bill looked up at Tommy..
and Tommy looked at Bill...
Why don't we clean this old church up,
and get these old pews filled?'


Expect the unexpected......


They took a rag and wiped the dust...
to try and make things shine..
And then they took the offering plate...
and put in it their last dime.


Expect the unexpected......


They took a broom and swept the floor...
and picked up broken glass....
They got it all so nice and neat...
and then they mowed the grass.


Expect the unexpected......


They lifted up the old church sign...
and stood it by a tree...
right down by that old dirt road
where everyone could see.


Expect the unexpected......


They ran back home, to find Daddy gone
but their Momma was inside...
Just to find her hurt again...
where Daddy had made her cry.


Expect the unexpected......


Don't cry Momma, wipe those tears,'
Little Bill and Tommy smiled...
'Cause! we have a big surprise for you....
just down the road a mile.'


Expect the unexpected......


Hand in hand they tugged at her.
until they made her run....
'What is it Bill, Oh Tommy,
just what have you two kids done?'


Expect the unexpected......


And then they came upon the house...
once hidden by the weeds...
and there it stood a country church...
just like it used to be.


Expect the unexpected......


'But what is it, Mother? What's with your tears?
We thought this would bring you joy.'
'Yes, but hush kids now and listen close...
my two sweet precious boys.'


Expect the unexpected......


They both got quiet and stood real still...
for the words they heard so true....
was Daddy praying in the church...
with his head bowed on the pew.


Expect the unexpected......


'Forgive me Lord! Forgive me Lord!
though I'm not worthy of Your love...
shine down on this sinner man
sweet Salvation from above.'


Expect the unexpected......


'For I've been out in the world, You know..
living my life all wrong...
until I came upon this church;
the place where I belong.'


Expect the unexpected......


'I never noticed it before...
all those times I passed it up..
I guess I wasn't looking, Lord...
or maybe I was ..'


Expect the unexpected......


'Bless oh Lord, yes, bless oh Lord...
the one who made me see..
this little church that used to hide...
behind all those tall weeds.'


Expect the unexpected......


And then he raised his head and stood...
with his hands high in the air...
to find two ., tear-faced boys...
with Momma standing there.


Expect the unexpected......


They ran up to him, hugged him tight...
as their tears fell on the floor.
'Don't worry kids, I'm not the Dad,
the one you've known before.'


Expect the unexpected......


Things are different for us now..
so keep on those pretty smiles...
and let's go gather people in...
to walk down these church aisles.'


Expect the unexpected......


Then Bill looked up at Tommy...
and Tommy looked at Bill...
'Come on brother, let's get to work...
to get these old pews filled.'


Expect the unexpected......


'For we need no special blessing...
for cleaning up this church...
'cause, God gave us back our Daddy..
and that's more than gold is worth.'


Expect the unexpected......


Sunday morning, pews all filled
and smiles on every face...
Especially two little country boys...
the ones who found this place.


Expect the unexpected......


Though it was hid back in the weeds...
and so far out of sight...
Nothing's ever hard to find
if you're walking toward God's light.


Expect the unexpected......


1 John 1:7 we walk in the light as He is in the light, we
have
fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus
Christ His Son
cleanses us from all sin.'


Expect the unexpected......


Won't you please share this with people you want to be
blessed.


Expect the unexpected......


Expect the unexpected...Have A Happy Day
