A Christian Nursery Rhyme or Three....

Happy Sunday Everyone,
As promised I am here to share a Christian Nursery Rhyme or 3 with you from one of my new favorite book finds:
The Christian Mother Goose Book
by Marjorie Ainsborough Decker.
I wish I had found this book when my girls were still young. I've really enjoyed reading it and almost singing along with the rhymes.
First, I would like to invite you over to Associated Content to read one of my very own altered nursery rhymes:
Now for the Christian Nursery Rhymes ~
There Was An Old Woman
The was an old woman
Who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children,
And loved them all, too,
She said, "Thank you Lord Jesus,
For sending them bread."
Then kissed them all gladly
And sent them to bed.
Wasn't that cute! ~~
I See The Moon
I see the moon,
And the Moon sees me.
God bless the moon,
And God bless me!
That would be a really sweet & quick bedtime prayer, don't you think?~~
One more, I'm sure you won't mind :) !
Three Kind Mice
Three kind mice,
See what they've done!
They helped a lost chick
To find Mother Hen,
They brought some food
To the church mice, then
They cleaned up the tree house
For Jenny Wren,
Three kind mice.
Aren't these such sweet variations of the beloved Mother Goose Rhymes we all know and love. Well I guess we all know, maybe not. Anyway, I will share more next Sunday.
In the meantime I have paint-overs to finish and share. And fused plastic envelopes to finish and share also. Plus hubby and I have been cleaning out flower beds and replanting today and still have more to do tomorrow. And we bought a Topsy Turvy Tomato Plant holder, and a Strawberry Plant holder too, so we'll be fixing them up later this evening. A big thank you to my brother Randy and my nephew for coming over and helping us with yard work today. We wouldn't have gotten as much done without their help.
You all have a safe and Happy Memorial Day,

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe,

Hi Tess! What a wonderful post - and I loved your altered Twinkle Twinkle poem - a girl after my own heart!
Thank you for your sweet comments too - I got balsa wood from a craft store and yes, it is worth trying out!
Happy Monday, Kristin xo
