Baa Baa Black Sheep - Lesson 19 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs (Billy Button's Birthday)


Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!
One for the master, one for the dame,
And one for the little boy who lives down the lane.
Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

2 Corinthians 9:7

New King James Version (NKJV)
7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

Acts 3 

The lame man at the gate called beautiful

In giving to God we can be like the black sheep and have a happy attitude.. ready to give freely.  When Peter and John came to the lame man laid near the gate called beautiful Peter spoke to him, letting him know that he (Peter) had no riches to give.  He did say that he still had something to give...

 He said he would give what he could.  He reached out and helped the man up - and in that act the man was healed; able to walk and jump and dance.  Our offering.. or gift to God does not HAVE to be money, as much as the church need s money it also needs your time, your love, and your presence.  We can give everyone around us these things and whenever we do - it is much like giving it to God!

Hey Diddle Diddle - Lesson 18 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs

Uploaded with Snapbucket

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon!

Matthew 19:26

New International Version (NIV)
  Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

1 Kings 18:20-40

Elijah and the Prophets of Baal

There are many impossible things in Hey Diddle Diddle, but we know that our God can do the impossible!  When Elijah went against the prophets of Baal in a 'contest' to have their God take the offering they each offered.. The impossible happened.  Even though there was a drought Elijah 'gave' water onto the alter where fire needed to appear.  The fire not only took the offering but also left the ground dry.  The prophets of Baal even being numbered to 500 could not call this power down!  Our God is the only God.. the God that CAN do the Impossible!
