Behind the Grindstone: The Book Store

I walked into a bookstore
On the crusty side of town
Wanting nothing in particular
Just thought I’d look aroun’

Behind the Grindstone: Coffin

Bob and Sally were on vacation
The road wound around and down
And there at the bottom
Was a quaint little mountain town

Behind the Grindstone: The Revelation of Creation

| Bill Bunting | Behind the Grindstone
I’ve lived my life close to creation and critters. It’s hard for me to understand how it’s possible to walk through creation and not come to the conclusion there must be a creator.

Behind the Grindstone: Roundin' Up Sheep

Sheep from here to there
In every pasture on the ranch
Sheep scattered everywhere

Behind the Grindstone: Poor Decisions

Behind the Grindstone: King of the Mountain

It’s interesting to watch as our society deals with their so called social issues. It seems the more they struggle to become what they are not the more they become what they are.

Behind the Grindstone: Forbidden Love

There’s love for the prairie
And love on the prairie as well
It’s a love story on the prairie
This love story that we tell

Behind the Grindstone: True Love

They acted like newlyweds
Though they’d been married forty years
They’d hung onto each other
Through the laughter and the tears

Behind the Grindstone: New Year's Resolution

Time has passed—The clock has ticked
We’re starting a year brand new

Behind the Grindstone: Cow Country Santa

| Administrator | Behind the Grindstone
The old man and his grandson
Sittin’ in a reclinin’ chair
A place of close contentment
They spent time together there

Behind the Grindstone: Born in the Night

The night is dark— as the herders sleep
Trusting in—the dogs to keep

Behind the Grindstone: Deacon

The old man settin’ there on the porch
His hair and mustache white
The young man with a pencil and pad
Lookin’ for a story to write
