RURAL BRYANT, SD, PRESENTS:
by Ron Ginther
by Ron Ginther
to Mother, uncles and aunts,
for by them there is victory
to quench the Enemy's taunts.
Remembering their godly practice
of God's true, eternal Word--
that's the way to keep our own feet
on track, and not off the path be lured.
Heritage is about salvation--
our own and loved ones' too--
for by it we keep Perspective--
and Heaven shines in plain view.
By it we can't be long distracted
and spend our lives in vain--
By it, we have a Compass--
our course set right in sunshine or rain.
Poem by Sister Estelle Stadem Rangen, 1981
The Place with plenty of sun,
There is a GAL we think highly of
Who is cheerful and full of fun!
An Artist in design...
No craft is ever too difficult,
Just give her some time.
No gas is lost as she drives!
If you want a fast trip down the mount
In this favor she thrives!
For to California she first went...
Since she's a good correspondent,
Good news to us she sent!
Envelopes stuffed "by the ton."
There's speed in her work, let me tell you,
No one out-does her, "by gum."
Ginger is her pet...(no meow).
More precious than all is her Darling,
Their son, his wife, Grandsons two!
She remembers each place ever stayed;
If ever a trip was repeated,
8. Health food is one of her majors,
She cooks like a gourmet too,
She's generous, fair and honest
in all she undertakes to do!
She scrubs and shines her Mom's home.
She bakes whole wheat bread by the dozens,
And, entertains with never a moan!
There's fencing--and brush she'll burn,
She works with the men and cooks meals
until exhausted, she'll finally home turn.
BIRTHDAY WISHES is what we shout!
For to our dear "Square Shooter"
We PRAISE YOU with never a doubt!
Life with wealth surprising new;
Oh, joy, that I so poor of self
Should be so rich of You!"
