The Day of Small Things

"For who hath despised the day of small things?" Zechariah 4:10

Don't you love to rub shoulders with a person who does a small job with finesse? We met just such an individual last week at Applebee's restaurant. Our table waiter introduced himself as Antonio. He was an aspiring algebra teacher putting himself through college by waiting tables. He hand-prints rebus puzzles to pass out to his customers as they wait for their food to arrive, and enthusiastically delights in discussing them. As a teacher, I connected with him immediately; his enthusiasm will be an instant "hook" for any subject he chooses to teach.

The bonus was that the rebus puzzles were so much fun, and so engaged our family that I went online (here) and collected a whole raft of them to put in my purse for future idle moments. I'll share a few with you here, but WARNING! They are addictive!

4) PENsword

1) Three blind mice~ the "i"s are missing
