This design “Why God Made Little Boys” from the Stoney Creek Collection was stitched for my grandson, Travis Lee Martin and given to him in 1990. The design is still available but it has changed considerably from this original one.
Why God Made Little Boys
God made the world out of His dreams
Of magic mountains, oceans and streams,
Prairies and plains and wooded land,
Then paused and thought “I need someone
to stand On top of mountains,
to conquer the seas, Explore the plains
and climb the trees. Someone to start out small
and to grow, Sturdy, strong as 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 “A job well done”.
