Sunday 4-10-11 Shadow Dancer & Surprise Field Trip

Good MORNING! Good MORNING! It's so nice to see so many of you in Chapel this morning. Are you all ready for our "field trip"? (smiling) Anyone guessed yet where we're going? Ah....well, then. It will be a true surprise.

This morning's guest speaker is known by us all. He's from the State of Washington in the Pacific Northwest. His mother is Dee Davis, and his siblings are Kodie Blue and Cherokee Dawn. Shadow and his family are very active in rescue work, and they are truly an inspiration to us all. Shadow himself was once a rescue pup.

Shadow ......Thank you so much for volunteering today. We look forward to hearing
your interpretation of the Ten Commandments as they would apply to our humans.

Everyone...please welcome.......SHADOW DANCER!!!

(clap....clap....yayy...."Shh...Hush now!"...clap...)

(Shadow steps to the microphone and begins to speak)

A Yorkshire Terrier's 10 Commandments for Humans!

Someone has written these beautiful words. We must try to understand the deep meaning of it. They are like the Ten Commandments to follow in life all the time.

1] Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a
"steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout.

2] So a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our past is not as important as our future. So, Look Ahead and Move on.

3] Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to
write.

4] All things in life are temporary. If going well; enjoy it, they will not last
forever. If going wrong; don't worry, they can't last long either.

5] Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

6] Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!

7] When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't
solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

8] A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye
sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

9] When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

10] Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's PEACE.

Thank you all for inviting me to be your guest speaker. I'm deeply honored.


(a brief silence as Mr. Dancer's words sink into the congregation, and then...)

(applause applause...yayyy, Shadow Dancer....woo wooo woooooo.....)

(Mary-Margaret steps forward to the podium and grasps Shadow's paw in hers)

Thank YOU, Shadow, for giving us all something so profound to think about while we are on....TA DAAAA....OUR ROAD TRIP!! I see you little puppies squirming in your pews. (laughing)

OK, everyone. Grab your sack lunches and your t-shirts. The bus is waiting outside by the Passionate Purple fire hydrant (I shall refrain from abbreviating and calling it the PP Hydrant for obvious reasons...LOL).

It's a fairly short ride. Anyone guess where we're off to today? Hmmmmmmm??

ROME...AND A PRIVATE TOUR OF THE SISTINE CHAPEL.
