the easter lamb, mary’s little lamb, has been on my mind since december when i saw the pattern in living. i knew right away that this was the way i wanted it to look and that this was the time to make it-minus the crooked ears, of course. i like his wobbly little legs and bowed head. his wounded side evokes tenderness.
fast forward to this week- mother goose is our current read-aloud at night, the sing-song-y ones being the favorite and mary had a little lamb is at the top of the list. so i thought what better way to finish the days than with this little guy. “and i don’t really want to play with him, mama, i just want to love him.”
the greatest thing about mary’s little lamb? He’d give His life for you.
