Have a dressed up day!

When you put the three of them together you never know what you will get.

But if it can be it will be about animals.

Sometime last year they formed a club.  An Animal Rescue Club - A.R.C.

ARC - animals - Ark - animals.  Cute, huh?

I will only live once so any kindness I can show to a creature let me do it now.  Amen

My dear friend, Sandra, who is also Emme's mama, took them to the Animal Rescue League last week to deliver newspapers and volunteer.

She does things like that, so does Caitlin's mama.  But me?  Not so much.  I feel like the man outside the ark shaking his fist at Brother Noah.

This next little fellow . . .

stole my Izzy-B's heart away.  Fortunately, he was adopted while she was there.  That's a good thing y'all, cause wearing my shoes when she has found a new animal to love can sometimes be difficult. 

Tonight she asked for a flying squirrel. 

Tomorrow it may be a leaping lizard or a dancing bear.

She loves God's creatures.  I love them too if they stay in the yard. 

It's a battle I'm not so sure I'm going to win.

They're ganging up on me.

So much like Amy! Lemme know about the "dancing bear", but he might like the taste of really fresh chicken. Probably not a good idea. And what if the flying squirrel flies away? Just something to think about!

Something else to think about: Squirrels, even the flying type, are just rats with cute tails!

I want that dog too and I'm allergic to them!

Izzy and her friends would love the part in Black Beauty (was reading it outloud to the kids yesterday) where the stablehand talks about how cruelty to animals is the devil's trademark because the devil was a murderer from the beginning, but kindness is the mark of God because God is love. That was quite profound, I thought...
