Southern Cattle Grazing
They nibble, take a bite here and again
Going down by the slough, green and grassy
They'll stop, something substantial for the cud
Southern cows, babies in tow, males clumped
Happier today, fresh pasture beckons
Carry their plate, it would be very full
Mention food and they'll come from miles and miles
Southern Baptist cattle, they like to eat
Bibles are on chairs saving their places
Younger ones, a few older, have iPads
Dollar for the plate, quarters for kids
Preacher gets paid, tells their sins, Bible says
Another bite, piece of cake, coffee calls
They've grazed enough, tummies full, chew their cud
Listen to the preacher, God hating sin
Sing songs, praise the Lord, Jesus in their hearts
Do we think all cows will go to Heaven?

- Bottom pictures
were taken 1-24-2016 at the Second Baptist Church, Houston, FM 1463 Campus
(link) where we had our annual "Great Big Breakfast." Turnout was great, we had 20 eight-foot
tables of food.
- I hope I'm not being sacrilegious here. Actually I do believe that all animals, God's creatures, will go to Heaven, they are eagerly waiting (Romans 8:18-25 [click here]).
- Top picture is a part of the flood control network for our subdivision, Cinco Ranch, in Katy, Texas (link). It was formerly farm land, rice fields and pasture land. There are no cows grazing here anymore. Note the 2.1 mile walking trail around this part of the network. We walk a mile or two, 30 minutes doctor's orders.
