for me. I brought the baby chick home. In a year or so, it grew into a big
handsome rooster. I name it “Kay-Mart-Key” for no apparent reason. I love to

was questioned by the high priest, Peter did exactly as the Lord had predicted.
The rooster crew, and Peter went outside and wept bitterly.
So, for my
“Kay-Mart-Kay”, the “Blue-Hen”, the “rooster at the courtyard”, may their faithful
singing in the morning serve as a reminder for our loyalty to the Lord.
