SundaySchool


Picture from here. I didn't actually visit the website and don't know where he got the image-but it was too wonderful to pass up.


I actually went to Sunday School today. Yay.
I was looking forward to it because we would be discussing Ezekial 37-the one about dem dry bones.

The reason why I was excited: the day of the run that my son and I ran in and I didn't die, we were waiting for their class to get called out for their turn to warm up in the gym. It was before Halloween and the PreKers were studying the skeleton. They learned a song and they sang it for us while we were waiting - in their best little Okie drawls. It was wonderful.

The toe bone's connected to the foot bone.
The foot bone's connected to the leg bone.
The leg bone's connected to the hip bone.
The hip bone's connected to the back bone.
The back bone's connected to the neck bone.
Then neck bone's connected to the head bone.
Now he-ar the werd of the Loord.
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dryyii bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dryyii bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dryyii bones
Now he-ar the werd of the Loord.
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dryyii bones

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dryyii bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dryyii bones
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna jump around
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna jump around
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna jump around
Now he-ar the werd of the Loord.

They wouldn't have sung that song at my girls' elementary in Washington state.
And maybe even not in our Texas ones.
It was awesome.
Maybe someday when I have a new computer and awesome editing software, I can edit the video & you can hear this precious Okie version of the song that made me so excited to go to Sunday School today.

(FYI-I didn't type in the correct order of what bone is connected to what bone.  For that reason, I would like a very cool coffee table book on human anatomy for Christmas-even though I don't have a coffee table. I am just very intrigued by how everything is connected. R OK aka my mr.-there are some neat ones at the dreaded WM's big brother store who's name starts with an S. Please just be sure to go shopping with me so I can show you the correct one.)

Can you tell why I've never been called to teach Sunday School? I'd be one of those teachers who get way off on a crazy tangent and have a hard time getting back to the main point of the lesson.


Back to Ezekiel.

When I read this chapter, I could visualize the dry bones coming together and the sinews attaching themselves and the bodies reforming. It looked like a movie with very, very cool special effects in my head.
Our teacher today made a comment about what a strange vision this Ezekial had and that if people can accept that he had this vision, what makes it so hard for them to believe in the vision that Joseph Smith had.
That was interesting.

Actually-this awesome vision is about the house of Israel coming together, the scriptures coming together, and resurrection. Pretty awesome stuff.

I enjoyed Sunday School today.
I heard the werd of the Loord.

  1. Tee hee, Cameron started singing along with me when I read your post. Don't know where he heard it, but funny still.

  3. I'm sure we have a few "bone books" lying around you could borrow until Christmas. :)
