  • Why God Created Little Girls God made our world from a great shining star And filled it with marvelous things, Like shadows and rainbows and dimples and bees And dreams that come true of wishes. But He needed something special and dear To make all He'd created worthwhile, To sing songs, pick flowers, be dainty, be sweet, To dance and sing and giggle and wink, So God made the world Little Girls. Whom forever He will cherish and love. For of all His creatures in Heaven and Earth, He sees in a Little Girl's eyes, The wonder and glory of Paradise.

  • Why God Created Little Boys God made a world out of His dreams of majestic mountains, oceans and streams, prairies and plains and wooded land,  then paused and thought..."I need someone to stand on top of the mountains, to conquer the seas, explore the plains and climb the trees. Someone to start out small and grow sturdy and strong like a tree," and so... He created boys, full of spirit and fun, to explore and conquer, to romp and run, with dirty faces and banged up chins, with courteous hearts and boyish grins.When He had completed the task He'd begun, He surely said, "That's a job well done."
