On The 3rd Day











On the third day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
three French hens,
two turtle doves
and a partridge in a pear tree…

The three French hens represent the theological virtues: faith, hope and charity.

As per usual you blow me away - I can't believe how smart and wonderful you are! What a great idea - I always loved this song. Your picture choices are beautiful.

I brought up this topic over Xmas with my friends... some were never christian and were intrigued..then we digressed to talk about how we are spoon fed our culture by those those that go before us, in an attempt to protect , guide, and inculcate..
and we never really know the words we mouth... until someone comes along like you and de constructs the whole thing.

Yay for some original thinking...
