Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Badgers and Hedgehogs
The Rockbridge 3rd graders sang this at the 2005 Fine Arts night. It delighted me then, and I've since wished I could hear it again. I wonder if four years has been long enough? I've been dropping hints to the K-3 music teacher...perhaps I'll try eviction threats next.... ;-)
I also tracked down a recording, which I've added to my Amazon wish list and will therefore probably never hear.
This post is dedicated to Kelly and Margaret, for reasons known to them.
O ye badgers and hedgehogs, bless the Lord, O ye badgers and squirrels and hedgehogs, bless the Lord, O ye badgers and squirrels and ferrets and foxes and hedgehogs, bless the Lord,
O ye parakeets and pelicans and porcupines and penguins, guillemots and guinea pigs and gallinules and godwits and badgers and hedgehogs, bless the Lord,
O ye weasels and warthogs and wallabies and wombats, chipmunks and chuckawallas and kookaburras and caterpillars and badgers and hedgehogs, bless the Lord,
O ye dromedaries and ye dragonflies and diddy little daddy long legs, budgerigars and bumblebees and bandicoots and bullfrogs and badgers and hedgehogs, bless the Lord,
