Finding God….

He was just a little lad, and on the Lord’s Day, was wand’ring home from Sunday School, and dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass; he found a caterpillar; he found a fluffy milk-weed pod, and blew out all the “filler.” A bird’s nest in a tree o’head, so wisely placed on high, was just another wonder that caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zig-zag course, and hailed him from the lawn; asked him, where he’d been that day, and what was going on.

“Oh, I’ve been to Sunday School.”
(He carefully turned the sod, and found a snail inside.)

“I’ve learned a lot of God.”

“M’m a very fine way,” the neighbor said,

“for a boy to spend his time; if you’ll tell me where God is, I’ll give you a brand new dime.”

Quick as a flash his answer came, nor were his accents faint;

“I’ll give you a dollar mister, if you’ll tell me where God ain’t.”
