my true love sent to me,
11 Pipers Piping
Sure hope her true love didn't send these too early in the morning! Whew! Can you imagine the complaints from the neighbors? Well, you're probably right, these aren't so bad next to all of the noise the birds make, and the cows' mooing.
Traditionally though, the 11 pipers stood for the Eleven Faithful Apostles who stuck with Jesus when seemingly all others had turned against Him. You could say there were like pipers in that they "tooted their horns" by spreading the gospel as Jesus commanded. And, they were like the "Pied Piper of Hamlin" because people would follow them.
Only one more devotion after this devotional for the 11th Day of Christmas!
