Fish Dress

"You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16

My favourite dress!
Last night, one of the last few birthday emails that came in was a poem from one of my former team-mates in Uganda.  It made me laugh and I want to share it with you!!

"There was a store filled with dresses
Patterns of flowers, geometrics and fishes.
The ones with the flowers were bought
The geometric dresses were not
And the fishes, well... let's just say they were not caught.

The flowers were worn by all,
And the geometrics caused people to ball.
But the fishes kept shining bright
Swimming around they were quite the sight!

One day this woman bursts on the scene,
For a new dress she is super keen!
She passed through the flowers
The geometrics weren't worth the hours
But the fishes... they gave her extraordinary powers!

When she wore the fishes in town,
People would look her up and down!
On her bike she would fly right by
So fast you thought she might be in the sky.

This woman became known for her fishes,
And her jokes that would leave everyone in stitches.
She was lovely and bright
And as a lightbulb on a bike on a hill she was quite the sight!

Despite the fishes this woman is great
Becoming friends with her was more than good fate.
We love her a lot and miss her fishes
Here's to her, a day full of lovely birthday wishes."

Thanks Sarah!!  I just want you to know - I still wear that dress all the time, but it's turned into sleepwear.
