“Dad!” I asked in my way,
“who sends what?”
Is this from the Devil or not?
Does God bring a storm for a reason,
Or is it the Devil in his season.
Dad was patient and so wise.
“Well now, that old serpent he tries
To make you believe your God is not good,
Makes you wonder if you worship as you should.
Just remember this my girl
Everything he can hurl,
Mean and deadly is that old adversary,
All good is from God, no controversy.
