Sophia's Story

Sophia's Story
Copyright - June 1980

Listen dear folks and you will hear the story of why we're gathered here.
Now let your minds travel back in time, back further...and that's just fine.

The scene is heaven so long ago
Spirits lined up as far as can go
"What's taking so long?" One asked with a nod.
"Oh just be patient.  Sophia's talking to God."

"Now Sophia, you understand don't you?
You understand what you're to do.
It won't be easy...this trip to earth
but if you go, you'll prove your worth."

"Yes, I understand and don't you see
I have a little gypsy in me.
So let's get going, I hate being slow."
Yes.  This is what happened so long ago.

So Sophia traded in halo and wings
and all of her other Heavenly things.
She waved goodbye as she passed through the door.
That was November 11, 1904.

Scene two takes place after many years.
Sophia's seen smiles, heartache and tears
but lo and behold as was in God's tune,
down to Sophia, God sent June.

She was a bundle of joy
A basket of bliss.
So to add to her pleasure
God sent Sophia Chris.

A cute little boy
full of mischief and love.
God saw Sophia loved him
so Henry came from above.

When God saw that three
caused not much dilema,
He blessed her again
and sent Mary Emma.

As Sophia wiped the
sweat from her brow.
She wondered what God
had in store for her now.

She said "Wait a minute.
This is a little bit scary.
I've got June and Chris
and Henry and Mary.

So I'll refrain from more blessings
if it isn't much trouble.
She shouldn't have said that
Cause she got zapped double.

Jeri and Emy
came down to rest.
Now Sophia was really
being put to the test.

But she loved each one.
She was proving her grit.
So God sent her Franny.
"Now wait a minute....that's it!!"

Seven's enough..wait a minute...go slow.
Are You sure I agreed to this long ago.
"Yes Sophia, you agreed on that Heavenly Day,
plus a little bit He sent Lola May.

With eight was an armful.
A year went by.
Then two, then three
Sophia let out a sigh

The fourth came and went.
She felt good with stuff.
She finally felt God
had blessed her enough.

But then in five years
blessing nine came to earth it.
Could she stand it???? You Bet!!!
Because Susie was worth it.

So Sophia was tested
and she came out blue steel.
She had kept up her faith.
She and kept up her will.

She took all life's hardships
and she beat them all.
She stood up proud
and she stood up tall.

Then on June the 10th of 1980
God said "Well done"  to this lovely lady.
He called her home, gave back halo and wings
and all of her other Heavenly things.

So if you wonder about Sophia
just give a smile and a nod.
It's for certain she's up there
talking to God.
