Rockets and Sweet Tea

INT:  Living Room.  Morning.

LEADING ROLE:  GOD

SUPPORTING ROLE:  ME

                                ME

Good Morning Lord and how are you?
Have You had a sleepy night?
Have all Your dreamy dreams come true?
Are You watching from on high?

What about that prayer I prayed,
at Your cross I cried,
the one to help You change the world
and shine Your shiny light?

For in my own backyard I see
deception, hate and lies
and roaring lions, luke warm sweet tea
and southern compromise.

And when I turn the TV on
I see rockets in the sky
and floods and fire and war, war, war
and human shields, oh my!

Now, I have not the resume
one would require, even so
approve me, use me, scoot me off
broken places I will go.

Once a child so small was I,
my foolish days you know.
I have had enough of milk,
with You I grow, I grow!

In Your classroom Lord, I sit
tip, tipping off my seat
with oooh! oooh! ooohs! and hands raised high
pick me, pick me, pick me!
