Shuck and Jive
Ginger she can really shuck and jive
And she's now on her way to thirty five.
With six little ones at home all day
Outside is the place she would like them to play.
The dishes have been moved to the lower shelves
So that Daniel and Lydia can help themselves.
The older girls help out a lot
When it comes to cooking, they're Johnny on the spot.
Isaac too helps around the house
But when he wants to hide, he's quiet as a mouse.
At the Clark house, stomachs are never empty
Cause Ginger and Kyle have crock-pots-a-plenty.
When this couple needs some time alone
Pedro has told them, "Just pick up the phone."
Yes, Ginger has a heart that's completely full
Of love for kids, and that's no bull.
To work I must go, so let me just say
I wish you love and a Happy Birthday.
A Birthday Twirl
I'm an old cowgirl
from north of the Rio Grande
Sent to sing a birthday twirl
for my beloved neice, not a farmhand!
Ginger's her name
Kids are her game
Geesh I can't keep up!
Just because you're 34. . .
Don't despair, oh no
You gotta keep saddlin' up
Ride that trusty steed
up in the clouds and across the sky
Keeping your dreams always alive!
Mom to Seven
She's a homeschooling mom to seven
Not one of our kids is named Kevin
Gives herbs to our crew
Gave birth at home too
When we're together it's like heaven.
Better Than a Blister
Ginger is my sister
She's got herself a mister
Don't ever fight
Cuz she's always right
But she's better than a blister
Today she's thirty-four
And me she will abhore
For telling you
But it is true
She'll think we've gone to war
Another rumor I will spread
That the hair upon her head
It's all a joke
She's gonna croak
Did you think it was really red?
Her children, there are seven
Most of the time it's heaven
Ebony and ivory are they
And every night they pray
That one day they'll number eleven
One thing I must say
And on this I won't sway
A truer friend there is not
And I love her a lot
For her loved ones she'll never betray.
My story must come to an end
On this I cannot bend
My sister is great
Kyle's lucky to be her mate
And I'm proud to call her my friend!
Spice of Life
Ginger, oh Ginger, the spice of life!
You have lots of kiddos
You are a great wife.
Ginger, oh Ginger, rooted in God
You love your crock-pot
You use the oil of cod
Ginger, oh Ginger, full of fragrance
You teach school to seven,
You study the art of France.
Ginger, oh Ginger, helper of tummies
You love the Lord
and your hubby of hubbies!
Ginger, oh Ginger, a bold, but humble spice
Happy Happy Birthday Hope you have a great life!
Long Ago in '74
Long ago in '74
A babe named Ginger burst through Heaven's door
Her mom and dad thought she was exquisite
And praised God for her earthly visit!
At four she was really quite shy
Her beauty her fears did belie
But with blue eyes flashing and eyelashes crashing
Her impact was really quite smashing!
At eight our Ginger was blooming
Tho' homework she often ignored
She captivated friends in the rooming
And her classmates she never bored!
At 16 she turned to acting and drama
And starred in school plays unlike her momma
She recited her lines and acted her parts
While everyone admired her talented smarts!
One day God planted Kyle Clark
As through the church classes they crooned
In short time his charm won over her heart
And Ginger was smitten and swooned.
They shared strong desires to have kiddos
And their family grew fast and strong
Now they wriggle and giggle and romp through the meadows
And we find the nine Clarks where they belong.
My Ginger, my Ginger, how blessed we have been
To watch your wisdom and stature abound
God's beauty shines through you as His love is within
And you're anointed with His mighty crown!
Roses are Red
Roses are red
Carnations are pink
If you want Mom's attention
Just send her a link.
Ginger's bread is easy to see
It is evident in her family.
Her ingredients are simple and pure,
To make a bread that will endure.
Love to make a heart true,
Goes into each task she must do.
Patience she shows each day,
To guide her children in God's way.
Joy abounds in her face,
Reminding us all of our place.
Peace she gives to one and all
Of her children both big and small.
Her arms remain open at all times,
Be it for a hug or attitude's demise.
Ginger's bread cooks in her home, it's true
Her life a shining example to me and you.
Angels Among Us
Angels are needed so badly in the world
To wipe a tear, hold a hand, or calm a fear
We need people to be willing to go against the grain
To assist and love others with no concern of personal gain
Ginger, you have humbly stepped up to the plate
You have said yes to God and welcomed His fate
The challenge has been large but you have done it with a smile
Keeping your chin up and giving glory to God all the while
You have loved your husband and your babies, both from your womb and from your heart
On your knees with the Lord and His word is where each day you start.
I am amazed when I think of the wonderful testimony you offer
Be being a strong sister in Christ, a wife, and a wonderful mother
If ever I need confirmation of the Lord's love and abundance
I can look to Ginger Clark, an angel God sent to live among us!
Happy Birthday, Ginger! May you know how special you are. . . not just to people that you love,
but the mamas that you've touched in internet world with your Titus 2 wisdom and example.
