I LIKE PICNICS!

My grandchildren love my company
and lead me by the hand.
They laugh and run and skip and jump,
wandering happily through the land.
A basket of 'goodies', lovingly planned by Mum,
to fill empty tums with a feast so grand... I like picnics!

My children loved their picnics too,
as they grew up we had quite a few.
We'd roam the same fields and hills
that I had roamed as my friends and I grew!
So many memories crowded my mind,
I'd share with them old tales and new... I like picnics!

The best one ever was quite a day, 
when a famous young Preacher came our way!
My Mum packed loaves and fishes for me, 
so excitedly I ran to hear what He would Say.
The hours flew by, but it SEEMED like minutes,
what He had to Share was so good that day... I like picnics!

Tummies began to rumble,
the disciples began to grumble...
"Send these hungry people on their way!"
They looked astonished as on their ears His Words did tumble...
Timidly, I offered my picnic to a disciple; he gave it to The Master -
Who the loaves and fishes did crumble... I like picnics!

He turned His Face to Heaven,
Lifted up my food for Blessing...
Then Gave...
and Gave...
and Gave... 
to everyone who came... OH YES, I DO LIKE PICNICS!!!
