{words of a child}

~Still on a semi-blogging break.~
I'm directing our VBS at church, which will be here in just a few weeks. That combined with work, other summer activities, (and unfortunate computer problems,) has me busy and running ragged at the moment! :)
But I did want to drop in say HI, and share this cute poem that a friend emailed me this morning.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :) ~Rhonda


He was just a little boy, On a week's first day.

Wandering home from Bible school, And dawdling on the way.
He scuffed his shoes into the grass; He even found a caterpillar.
He found a fluffy milkweed pod, And blew out all the 'filler.'
A bird's nest in a tree overhead, So wisely placed up so high.
Was just another wonder, That caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zig zag course, And hailed him from the lawn;
Asked him where he'd been that day And what was going on.
'I've been to Bible School ,' He said and turned a piece of sod..
He picked up a wiggly worm replying, 'I've learned a lot about God.'
'M'm very fine way,' the neighbor said, 'for a boy to spend his time.'
'If you'll tell me where God is, I'll give you a brand new dime.'
Quick as a flash the answer came! Nor were his accents faint.
'I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
If you can tell me where God ain't...?'

HI Rhonda! Oh, this was sweet! Blessings for your work in VBS! When I was little I always love Bible School - and that's exactly what we called it way back then! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

So sweet! If you get the time stop by and place your guess as to where Trav goes on his mission. It's the second post down. There WILL be PRIZES for the closest guess!! We're running pretty ragged here too but ours will end Saturday night for awhile! LOL! Take care of yourself my friend!

Hi Rhonda!

Busy summer! It's so hard to blog in the summer, there's so much to do. I love the VBS poem! I'll have to share that with our church.

While catching up on your past posts I saw the Christening cloths you framed. They look gorgeous! You did a great job Rhonda. That gives me some ideas for some keepsakes I have. I have a crocheted collar that my great grandmother made with a note in my grandmothers handwriting telling her mother made it. It would look so sweet in a frame like that. Thanks for the idea!

Hugs, Sherry
