Jared is a little 6 year old boy who rides my bus to school. He has a assigned seat for his protection from the other kids..Jared talks non-stop for 40 minutes and drives the others crazy. I have gotten very good at filtering, so he sits close to me. This is a story that Jared told me last week.
I have noticed the young lamb on his farm that seems to play and stay close to the barn cats..Wish I could have gotten a picture of this lamb sitting up and batting at a kitten that is 10 times smaller. I got the impression that this lamb is fussed over alot by the kids on the farm, mostly because I live in farm country and never seen a sheep actually socialable. 🙂
The story goes like this;
Jared is grounded through out his Thanksgving vacation due to the fact that his dad caught him putting the lamb back outside in the early hours of the morning. LOL This little guy was taking the lamb in the house while the parents were sleeping, and had done it for quite a while. Jared said, “it was easy I just went out on the porch in the dark and said here kitty kitty, and she comes to me..see I named her kitty secretly. So my mom always thought I was getting a cat to sleep with”. ROTFL Jared was not happy about the punishment but seemed to smile anyway…I asked him “you okay with that punishment?”, he smiled real big and said “Yeah…my dad only thinks I did it one time..I been doing it since school started…hahahaha”.
Hope everyone has recovered from Thanksgiving! Thought we all could use a little comic relief!
Oh one more short story that my Husband told me last night that I thought some of you might get a smile out of…..
There is an Atheist bear hunting, and starts to be chased by the bear…lost his gun…and is standing face to face with bear. Bear is now standing upright, and growling…the man yells “Oh God”! God answers and says ‘How is it that you don’t think I exist but will yell my name when in a life or death situation?, well…no matter I love all my creation what is it I can do for you?” The Atheist replied…make the bear a believer in You (laughing to himself..out smarted God, Christians are so passive). God answered and said “OK”….the bear then bowed his head and said “Thank you Lord for this food I am about to partake of”
Sorry had to do it!

Oh Darla, I love this little Jared and the lamb. How precious is this, kitty the lamb. He is a little boy after my own heart and God bless you for being his ear as he rides the bus. Don’t know why he talks so much but apparently he really needs someone to listen. I love these kids. If you listen closely between the lines, there is usually a story to come out of it. And the bear asking blessing over his “food”, I just love that!! Can’t out smart God ever!!:) Hope you had a blessed day yesterday. I sure did, and the food was second. Bless you sister, and I love you more than
stuffing, and let me tell you how much I love stuffing!!!

Laurie- God just fills my heart with so much for the kids on my bus! Special soft spot for Jared..I actually look forward to picking him up, he always makes me laugh with his sincerity, and little man ways. Praying for you all in CA and for the fires that have restarted.
GG-you are always a treat! I will be sure to let you know in plenty of time when I can pull this together…and I love goofballs with bingo cards…I will be the one shooting buttons at the others as they walk by 😉
That was a cute story and a funny joke!
Girl, those are some great stories! I really like Jared’s story! What a great story!
Love you princess!!
LOL I love Jared’s story! That is too cute!
Jared is CRACKING me up! This is hilarious. Here kitty kitty and it is a lamb! dont you know Jesus loves it!!
Cute story about the chatty kid. What about distracting the driver though? Tsk!
Love the joke at the end.
Hover- there are times when Jared has to be told to “hush”, and he is understanding that when we have bad weather I really need more concentration to manuver that huge bus. He is all boy and I love how that littleman thinking works! 🙂
G’Day D and now S from superbly sunny Aus 😀
Have been more than a little ‘distracted’ from blog duty recently owing to a friend staying with us for a week as he seeks a career change in this the Mining BOOM State of W Aus.
He looked for one day and now has a three week job with a break over Xmas and the chance for more work and better pay conditions in the new year. He starts at the low basic wage of Aus$ 270 per day every day for 21 days (roughly US$ 250 a day or $1750 a week) so i guess you could say God was with him that day – or at least one of His agent’s was 😉
He is due to leave on Thurday and then i have two weeks of relative peace ( it has been chaotic compared to my ‘normal’ life but i am having more fun and good memories in this week than i have had in a year of ‘normal’ life. 🙂 ) before another friend arrives from Europe to do the same thing – busy busy busy! lol
Hoping things are returning to ‘better’ for you both and i LOVE your last post on ‘going with the Flow!’ and letting go of ‘me’ control. 🙂
You said it with your usual wisdom and love. You are blesed in many ways D ( and S too of course 🙂
