My name is Dolly! I’m a Bunny! I’m a one ear bunny! And a little short when it comes to one of my front legs. Yes, a special Rabbit am I.
I live in Leesburg, Va and I’m so happy to daily hop around. I have a few favorite windows where I stop for fun. I have made friends with Socrates and Peaches. They bark. They patiently wait by my favorite window for me to appear each morn.
They never seem to notice that I’m a Rabbit missing an ear and front foot too. Their family named me Dolly. I hear them say things like, “Dolly, the one ear bunny.”
The family always seem thrilled to see me. They all stand and stare at me. Not because I’m a little different in my looks but because I’m gentle in my approach.
I wonder, they wonder, we all wonder? I have no way to tell them how I am living, hopping, thriving on three legs not four. How I hear so well with one ear not two.
They seem a little strange also. Socrates and Peaches walk on all fours. They have two ears. But, the tall ones that live and visit there walk on two legs with two ears. Gee, we are all so different in size, color, and language.
Yet, we all love our early mornings and late evenings to meet, greet, chat and smile. We have a few faithful birds that show up as well.
We have all come to a few conclusions. 1) Ecclesiastes 1:8-11 ⁸All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. ⁹What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”
2) The Christian life is not meaningless. There may be nothing new under the sun, but Jesus promises, some day, to make all things new ( Revelation 21:5).
3) I am a Rabbit I enjoy the benefits of this great yard and I don’t pay rent. Neither do the birds.
My lady landlord told me a story. Rent free for me and the birds were meant to be. She told me another bunny story, there is nothing new under the sun but there are many things hidden yet to be revealed.
The world is in great search for the hidden now. She says it’s a vaccine for Covid 19. She at times talks out loud saying it’s prayer that holds a key for the hidden to be revealed. She believes where a few agree on this one thing we will see the hidden revealed.
As I close for now I have a question? Have you ever wondered why Easter loves a hunt for the new yet to be revealed? How many eggs did you find? Until next time, love Dolly💝
