In a very special house, in a very special cabinet, there lives a very special little lady named Miss Esther.

Well, in matter of fact, her full name is Miss Esther MaeWell, but everyone in Smallville knows her simply as ‘Miss Esther’. So unless we decide to send her some mail, I think we’ll call her ‘Miss Esther’ too.

Miss Esther is a bit shorter than most of us, just over a foot tall. But she doesn’t seem to mind! And then her hair is brown and her eyes are blue. 

She lives in Maple Sugar cottage, on Woodland Road with her two sisters. The space sometimes feels a tad small for all three of them, but being the very best of friends that they are, they think it is fun. 

And now you know a little about Miss Esther but at the same time feel it isn’t very much at all? I know just how you feel. It’s just enough information to make one want to know more, isn’t it?

You want to know what her favorite color is? Ah yes, let’s see…

She says it is ‘pink’ (she’s come to sit here you see, to make sure I get this straight). And oh yes, she has a cat named Carrots and a dog named Cashew. Cashew is the most well-behaved tiny creature in all of Smallville, but Carrots…ah!

Carrots is a another story all his own. He means well…but I’m getting ahead of myself. We’re not writing just now about Carrots.

Now, Miss Esther, what am I missing? Ah very true. You see, brown hair, blue eyes and pretty pink things are all very well, but are not the tippy-top most important. 

Miss Esther loves Jesus very much and is most anxious to know if you do too? Her favorite verse is Psalm 19:14 and she loves to start every day asking the Lord to help her speak words and think thoughts that are pleasing to Him. 

Miss Esther also has two very special sisters, Priscilla and Susanna. She can hardly wait to introduce you to them! 

Yes, Esther, I know you want to talk about them! But this post is getting pretty long! We’ll just have to write another! We have dozens of stories to tell, don’t we, dear? Like about when you cleaned house and Carrots got lost and you discovered new friends on Tea Cup Street and about the letter that came in the mail…the question will be which ones to share first… 

Well dear friends, Miss Esther and I must bid you farewell until the next post. We hope you enjoy all the beautiful fall colors this week! Miss Esther says to be sure and watch out for the chipmunks as they are special friends of hers. If you see them, do tell them she says ‘hello’.  

Adieu with love and hugs to all the girls,

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
