Blue Monday



Morning, sweetnesses. It's Monday and you know what that means - it's time to be Blue!! I'm talking about a happy Blue Monday hosting by our ever smiling Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ . Make sure you go and visit her today and you'll see all the Blue Ones participating in this most happy occasion.



Today I want to share with you my two little twin rabbits with much blue on them.


You can see all of the blue showing on this little rascal! Even his little tail is blue!


You know how I love to tell you stories, but today I don't have one. Does that make you happy? I hope it makes you a little sad! I could make one up, but you know I wouldn't do that!

Well, be Blue anyway and I'll hopefully have a story to tell you soon!


Be Blue Sweeties,

Well, a few of you were concerned because I didn't tell you a story, so I'm back and here goes...

My Mom and Dad took me to church and Sunday School for the first time when I was three years old. I had had an encounter with death and they decided right there and then to start living for the Lord and to raise me in a Christian home. Well, my first time to go to Sunday School was so exciting, I'm told. The teacher asked if any of the children would like to sing a little song about Jesus.
Well, being the shy child that I was, I stood up and said I would sing a song. She said, oh how marvelous, our little visitor is going to sing us a song. I stood up proudly and sang "Davy Crockett" king of the old frontier, for you oldies! She let me finish my most gorgeous song and then said, that was so nice, but do you know another song about Jesus? I said I did and in my most gorgeous three year old voice sang "Here Comes Peter Cottontail". See, I've always been musical.
We we moved to another state when I was thirteen and that little church gave us a going away party. My kindergarten Sunday School teacher told my mother that story! She could have shamed me or made me feel really badly, but she was just a sweet Godly woman and I believe she handled the situation beautifully! I was a hoot way back then.
Okay, now there's your rabbit story, Dear Ones!! ;)





I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~



Rabbitt in the Pea Patch




Well, Scratch on the hillside raking up hay,


Rabbitt in the pea patch eating all day.


Get my dog, let's go hunting,


Get that rabbit out of town.


Well, Scratch on the hillside raking up leaves,


Rabbit in the pea patch eating all day.


here, here


Well, Scratch on the hillside raking up leaves,


Rabbit in the pea patch eating all day.


get that rabbitt out of town


Get my dog, let's go hunting,


Get that rabbit out of town.


Well, Scratch on the hillside raking up leaves,


Rabbit in the pea patch eating all day.

  4. Love rabbits, particularly ones as pretty as these. We got a gorgeous Note Song though and thats counts for a lot. Too sweet! That's ok about there being No story - the next one will be even better. Sometimes there is no story anyway. Have a great Monday!

  6. I love your bunnies. I had to go back and look when I saw that Nikki said it matches the wall paper. It was one of those 'I made you look kind of things". But this time it was for a good reason. Happy Blue Monday!

  13. That is a gorgeous story Shelia. And guess what? You are still a hoot now. I can just imagine you as a little one singing those songs. It would have been a brave thing to do as well. What a lovely woman she was too. Gorgeous memory. Thanks for your story, now you are completely off the hook.

    I love those bunnies! Oh my. They are so sweet and you know how I love bunnies too. Their pattern is soooo pretty.
    Loved your story too. *s*. I can just picture you Shelia standing their confident as can be singing. How nice that your teacher allowed you to finish. I hope you learned some songs about Jesus soon after that. Oh my.

  17. Hello dear one, I adore your rabbits and I am glad I visited later and was the lucky one who read your story. It made me laugh Sheila. You were definitely musical at a very young age.

    Love...Jeanne

  18. What a sweet story. Having a song in your heart is a blessing. I'm sure your Sunday School teacher recognized that. And it gave her a funny story to share with others all these years.

  19. I'm so glad you added this precious story! How cute that you wanted to sing those songs for your class. What an introduction to your new Sun. school class. I bet the other children enjoyed Davy Crockett and Here Comes Peter Cottaintail, and it sounds like your teacher thought it was precious too. Love your story, as always. laurie

  20. LOL Blogland demands a great dreal from you; they don't give you a day off! LOL I'll bet you were a cute one! That was a wise teacher who allowed you self-expression and then taught you to love Jesus. Now, your bunnies are precious (hmmm, where have I heard that word?) and they match your wallpaper! You are an amazing decorator! Happy Blue Monday!

  30. I must tell you..I loved your story. What a smile it caused. "Way back in the day"..I once stood up on stage and gave my rendition of the song..The Pigs Got the Measels. I still kinda cringe when I laugh about it now..:) Happy Blue Monday and have a lovely week.

  32. Love the bunnies! Your story is funny and your Sunday School teacher knew just what to do. Kids do say the darndest things as Art Linkletter knows so well!

  33. This story tickled me into laughter. Imagining you adorably singing whole heartily in front of everyone. This teacher probably reflects back with a smile on her face too.

    Sweet Wishes,

  34. What a sweet story! It reminds me of my little sister. When she was 5 she was singing at a Christmas service in church. Her Sunday school class sang "Away in a Manger". My mom told her to remember to sing nice and loud so everyone could hear her. Well she actually didn't sing - she SHOUTED the words. The whole congregation couldn't help but laugh...

  35. Oh Sheila, you know how I feel about cute little rabbits. They are adorable! And I LOVE you story today! I bet you were great singing your little three year old "Jesus" songs. I have a story on my blog today too, but I wasn't nearly as cute.
    *hugs*

  36. Love the rabbits and love the Sunday School story. It reminds me of a story my niece told. She asked her daughter what she learned in S.S. She said she learned the song B-I-N-G-O Bingo was his name-0.
    Thanks for the laugh of the Blue Monday.
