From the Dragons’ Den

George, Uncle Sam and Idris writing:

We three have been really excited lately as we have heard people coming in and out of church at different times.  Sometimes they come in and spend a little time near the candle stand. First of all, they sit quietly for a little while, then they light one of the candles.  We like that very much as it makes us feel less lonely. 

Sometimes those people who call themselves the choir come in and they are a bit noisier.  They sing songs and have a really enjoyable time. We always join in with them as we know some of the songs they sing.  We especially like the one they sing which says:

‘Calm me Lord, as you calmed the storm. Still me Lord, keep me from harm.

Let all the tumult within me cease. Enfold me Lord in your peace.

They like singing that one and we love listening to it as it makes us feel that everything might return to normal sometime. 

We don’t know when all the Little Dragons will come back but we feel that if our friends keep singing, then everything will sort itself out.  We hope so as we miss all our church friends who we have got to know over the past 14 years. 

We will know when things are getting back to normal because we will be taken out of the cupboard and given a bath, ready to face the world.  So, if you see a new picture of us hanging on the washing line, you will know that things are looking good.

Val sends every good wish. 

Best wishes from we three:  – George     Uncle Sam   and Idris.
