Mongolian Mouse

Not a mouse was in the house

But a Mongolian Mouse?

And it is a gerbil…

Sweet little creature aboard the ark

Enjoys watching the elephants

Keeps track of the other animals

Noah calls out to the gerbils…

Making sure they are all aboard

Checking to make sure they are all right

A pair of gerbils in Noah’s sight

A pair of gerbils in the cold of night

Sweet little creatures aboard the ark

 

Jesus is the Light of the world (John 8:12)

 

 

 

Noah Loves Coffee

Sipping on a hot cup

Noah seeks a warm abode

The piles of manure

Captivate an audience

From almost anyone

Elephants and cockroaches

Walking in the cow pies

But coffee steers the boat

Noah keeping his mind afloat

Work has to be done here

On a floating zoo of animals

A water farm

With God’s arm

Safely away from

The devil’s harm

And the coffee

Magnificent

Noah’s cornerstone

His caffeine home

Sheer in pure joy

Of a coming baby boy

Named Jesus

A Messiah-King

For everyone’s heart to sing

And He is on the way

Providing a way of escape

Away from sin

And a new life to begin

Get aboard the coffee train!

 

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart

(Psalm 37:4)

 

 

 

Newcomers

Tiny paws

And twitching noses

Newcomers to an

Aquarium home

Caged in by glass

Please proceed with love

And gentleness

And trust in God

For food and water

Gerbils are newcomers

In this home

And bless this home Lord!

Nature thrills us

Mother Nature stimulates us

Keeping us in wonder about

Nature and God

And tiny paws

Like babies

Seek the milk of God

In the here and now

 

But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one

(II Thessalonians 3:3)

 

 

 

Icy Raindrops

Gerbils peering out

Through the windows

Like a New England snow

With cold roof tops

Everyone seeking shelter

From the winter storm

As we remember

Eternal blue skies of youth

But Mother Nature

Keeps the chill alive

However the sun

Can break through

And rescue a cold heart

Baby gerbil

Baby gerbil

How sweet you are

And deer breaths

Become ice crystals

In the air

New scent on the dog trail

Reveals new animals

On icy tracks

Gerbils again peer out

Through the windows

Of an icy laden ark

And the dogs bark

Gerbils peering out through

The windows

And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus

(Philippians 4:19)

 

 

 

Gerbil Fun Day

Open portholes

And scavenger bugs

Make a slow moving day

Even the turtles make fun

Of a slower moving land snail

Noah and the wood planks

Give the gerbils

A diving board of fun

Playing aboard the water ship

Everyone is now happy

Gerbil tails swing radically

Even the crocodiles have warm hearts

Upon a slimy deck

Of algae and rain water

Gerbils run wild

Wearing New Year costumes

Of joy, happiness and stardom

Mongolian Mice or gerbils

They are called

It is gerbil fun day

Tiny paws in clay

Avoiding fears

Not shedding tears

Aboard the ark of glory

Even the hurricane is afraid

And the gerbils communicate

In foot thumping

Squeaking

Faith through nose twitching

Skin not itching

The only allergy is water

But have you

Ever seen a gerbil paddle?

Please move the mountains Lord

And keep us in the faith!

For we walk by faith, not by sight

(II Corinthians 5:7)

Gerbil Ark Rain

I see a gerbil in the rain

Upon the icy deck of pain

God help this tiny creature

Please display your Heavenly features

Place this animal far below

And away from Mother Nature’s

Hurricane show

He is much too small

Facing these waves so tall

Thank you for your guiding hand

Get our paws on the dirty land

Glad he went below the deck

Sunshine warm

Warmth upon a gerbil’s neck

 

Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in Heaven that one of these little ones should perish (Matthew 18:14)

 

 

 

Pink Sunset

Noah was tucking in the animals

Ready for a good night’s sleep

Especially the elephants, cows and sheep

And a few loose gerbils

Riding the wood planks

But overcast came a pink sunset

The reassurance of Christ our God

Giving rainbows and clouds

A pink appearance

Heaven is our reward

And everyone can be calm

The boat was not upset

As the pink sunset

Invaded every port hole

Lined with algae

 

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path

(Psalm 119:105)

 

 

 

Gerbils up the Ramp

Two by two

Animals going up the ramp

Wooden planks supporting them

Excitement of a new life

As birds pecked at seeds

Noah thrilled by God’s love

And gerbils now on-the-double

Going up the ramp

Elephants and humorous hams

Deer, seals and lambs

Two by two

Gerbils with little eyes

Taking a peek at cloudy skies

When will the rain come?

Will there be a dove?

Noah was thrilled by God’s love

Gerbils up the ramp

Like a Mongolian mouse

A quiet boat house

Little paws

Little feet

God’s love so sweet

You have granted me life and favor, and Your care has preserved my spirit

(Job 10:12)

 

 

 

Noah’s Troubles

On the ark

Life is not easy

Squirrels and gerbils

With stomachs queasy

Rain is coming down

Like cats and dogs

Repaired a rudder

As heavy as a log

Clouds wind and rain

And never ending pain

A light snow

On the greasy deck

Noah shoveled most of it

Avoiding a heart attack

But God keeps us all going

A system of checks and balances

A life of faith

Yes, a life of faith

And sometimes our walls crumble

Noah had trouble

Life is not easy on the ark

But Noah made it

On faith

 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

(Philippians 4:13)

 

 

 

They did the Gerbil Boogie-Woogie

Gerbils in flight

Tails airborne

Singing and dancing

Singing and prancing

They did the Gerbil Boogie-Woogie

Little paws

Giving high fives

Tails in orbit

Drunk on communion wine

Sipping from the

Forbidden vine

Noah couldn’t keep up with them

Even he danced a Charleston

Tongues so dry

As they kissed raindrops

And the boat treaded water

Gerbils looked at the sky

With raindrops

In their eyes

A flood of emotion

Dancing

Prancing

Laughing

Tails airborne

Some played the flute

Some jammed on guitar

Dancing fools

They did the Gerbil Boogie-Woogie

Everyone should make a wonderful shout to the Lord and praise Him!

 

 

 

A Gerbil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father:

Please keep me safe and protect my tiny life

Provide me with food and water as the Lord provides

I need a clean home with other gerbils to prosper

Include a loving human friend Oh, Lord!

Make sure the pet owner is reliable and loving

I want to make his children happy and

Make the wife laugh by my cheerful personality

I need a spiritual life too Lord

A true companion in Jesus Christ for eternal life

I want to go to Heaven

Where all the loving people, plants and animals reside

Thank you for this day, our daily bread

Thanks for putting your precious hands on us gerbils

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to

dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1)

 

 

 

Gerbil Store

Upon the ark

Gerbils and the pocket pets

Run a little retail store

Here they sell

Scented candles

Herbs and tasty treats

Personal items for sale

One gerbil purchased a nail clipper

Another bought a flashlight

Some visitors to the store are mice

They come in and shop as well

The sale items are ready for Saturday

And all the gerbils

Trim their whiskers

Good-looking shopkeepers

Everyone seems

To get a good deal

 

And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

(Matthew 21:22)

 

 

 

Running Wild

Noah began losing control

As the gerbils are running wild

Almost like a spoiled child

Up a ladder and down again

Goofy grins and gerbil frowns

Communicating in basic feet thumping

Talking in squeaks

Snuggling with each other

Including grooming behaviors

Napping and wrestling on Noah’s Ark

Digging and burrowing

Sometimes fighting and tummy rubbing

Noah is losing control

As gerbils are running wild

Almost like a spoiled child

See them go up the planks

Squeaking from door frames

On the wooden ship

Climbing walls often

Goofy grins and laughing

They broke into the pantry

Eating sunflower seeds

With fat bellies

Silly Mongolian Mice

But gerbils nice

For where two or three are gathered together in My Name,

I am there in the midst of them.

(Matthew 18:20)

 

 

 

Tea with Noah

The coffee room

The tasty beans

Bean bag chairs

Fancy lanterns

A gerbil hangout

Fancy pillows

A place of relaxation

The aroma of coffee

Tea bags warming your soul

Noah prayed before he drank

From a cup of tea

Always giving thanks for everything

Hot cups of tea aboard the moist Ark

Keeps one warm at night or day

Especially before chapel service

The tea cups steam up the room

Elephants sweeping with brooms

Cow pies and manure

Reality aboard a large vessel

But the coffee and tea

Keep one’s spirit alive

Gerbils singing together in the rain

With wet whiskers and tiny paws

Coffee beans packed in tiny jaws

Catching a caffeine buzz

A gerbil boat full of love

Now they perk up to black gold

Gerbils getting caffeine buzz

Just a gerbil boat

With Noah’s love

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace.

(I Corinthians 14:33)


 

 

Nature Song

Give me your heart Lord

Let me see the grasses of spring

Water so living

On wet and parched lips

Thank You Jesus

For a sunny day

I made it through again

With Your care

I can see the little gerbils

Walking in the grasses

Of spring

And of course

They sing



 

 

Bonnie in Heaven

Bonnie went to Heaven

As we crowded around the bed

We prayed and cried our eyes out

But You Lord

Took her to Heaven

To the golden shores

Where there will be light

And never any night

Now the gerbils do

A little dance

And Bonnie laughed

 

 

 

Pea Soup for Gerbils

Oh, not pea soup again

The fat gerbil said

As they stirred the green broth
