Today I received this nice email from my friend Mary, who lives a few blocks away from Bernie and me.
She has arthritis really bad and she delights in sending her friends such nice email forwards and brightening up their day.
Now it is a rare thing for me to be sending forwards, so I thought that I would just post this one...
I am dedicating it to Grampa Ron because he also sends such nice forwards even though many days he, too is in such pain. He is under the weather for the last few weeks and so we, his blog friends are really missing him..Don't tell him that this mean Canadian lady[what he is calling me all the time] kind of likes him and kind of misses him too.
Bernie always looks forward to his posts. He calls him Santa Clause!!
Anyways here is the post. It is SO good and Soooo true
"Think carefully about what you will be reading. This is a new one for me"...
Mary had a little Lamb,
His fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school each day,
Twasn't even in the rule.
It made the children laugh and play,
To have a Lamb at school.
And then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His Name!
Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gun shots and tears.
What must we do to stop the crime,
That's in our schools today?
Let's let the Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray!
