Eunice's Story of the Perfect Lamb
About the Book
After a perfect little lamb was born to, Fleecy, one of the ewe’s of a flock of sheep, a ewe named Eunice started to tell her little lamb, Minnie, about how a perfect lamb like that had to give it’s life on an altar by humans in the old days. She told her how the first humans ate the fruit the Creator told them not to when the deceiver said it would make them wise. They hid from the Creator, but He found them and told them they would no longer live forever. Minnie said that was awful, then saw her friend Woolly and asked Eunice if she could go play with him. Eunice knew Minnie had a short attention span, so she agreed. She could finish telling Minnie the story later. Minnie and Woolly ran too far way from the flock and had some trouble that the shepherd had to help them get out of. When Minnie got back, Eunice scolded her for going too far. Eunice started telling Minnie more of the story. Soon it was time to head for the shelter. The shepherd had his sheepdog, Shep, roundup all the sheep. When the sheep were all safe in the shelter, Eunice finished telling the story of the Perfect Lamb to Minnie and the other little lambs close by. They were all thankful that perfect lambs didn’t have to die for humans anymore. They felt safe in the shelter and fell to sleep.
