Sunday's Post on Monday (Again) & A Birthday

Greetings all,
Here are more rhymes from The Christian Mother Goose Book. You can find past posts from this book here (where I found the book), here, here, here and here (for new friends to my blog or old friends that may have been away). I was so tired yesterday I didn't do a lot of things I should have/or wanted to. My knee is bothering me, swelling and hurting, also. The heat here has the humidity high and I honestly think it is what's causing the pain in my legs. Of course the tired feeling could also have been due to the celebrating on Saturday.

It was my niece's 16th birthday and she wanted a Sweet 16 cookout with all of her family. Christina is my younger brothers 1st daughter. She is living with my brother now but in the past she has lived mostly with her mother and a step father or her mothers parents. She is fitting into her daddies family home just fine and all are making sure everyone gets to see her. Both sides of her family were at the bar-b-cue and there was no quarreling or squabbling. It was Christina's day and we made it a good one for her. Her mother even got to be there and she is now an aunt and she got to see her baby nephew.
She really enjoyed the cake! :)

Help with cleaning up...
She was ever so curious as to what her little brother would get her. He had been teasing her with the bag all week.



Can you see what it is.? It's those wipe away the hair on your legs thingy's. She got such a laugh, we all did. And little brother, age 13, blushed with embarrasment. I guess the joke was on him. She was not embarassed at all. LOL!! Great kids, all of them.

So anyway, here are today's offerings from my Christian Mother Goose Book:



SEE-SAW MARGERY DAW
See-saw Margery Daw,
Jackie has found a new master.
His name is Jesus, Shepherd and Friend,
And Jackie's a sheep in His pasture.

WOULD YOU PRAISE HIM ON A CACTUS?
Would you praise Him
On a cactus?
Would you praise Him
Just for practice?


Would you praise him
In a hole?
Would you praise Him
On a pole?


Would you praise Him
When you're small?
Would you praise Him
When you're tall?


Would you praise Him
In a tree?
Would you praise Him
On your knee?


Would you praise Him
On a roof?
Would you praise Him
With one tooth?


Would you praise Him
With a song?
Would you praise Him
With a gong?


Would you praise Him
In old shoes?
Would you praise Him
When you lose?


Would you praise Him
Beating drums?
Would you praise Him
With smashed thumbs?


Would you praise Him
On a sled?
Would you praise Him
On your head?


Would you praise Him
In a pew?
Would you praise Him
In an igloo?


Would you praise Him
With a clown?
Would you praise Him
Round the town?


When you praise Him
When you're glad?
Would you praise Him
When you're sad?

Would you praise Him
blowing bubbles?
Would you praise Him
In your troubles?


Would you praise Him
With a dove?
Would you praise Him
For His love?


Would you praise Him
Hot or cooler?
YES! I'LL PRAISE HIM!
HALLELUJAH!

I could show you all of the wonderful drawings that went along with this wonderful rhyme. I could...but....wouldn't it be much more fun creating drawings of your own to go along with the stanzas? The next time your children or grandchildren say, "I'm bored, there's nothing to do." , take a moment to read them this rhyme and then assign them to task of illustrating it for you. That would be one wonderful gift to cherish. Maybe I should show you a peek at the illustrations. Samples for yourself or the little ones.



Ok, It's sleepy-bye time.

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be You,

Tess
