Parakeet?

I heard the pastor say:
"God gave a parakeet--
To give us peace of mind
When we feel we have been beat."

I just don't understand
How a bird inside a cage
Can give me peace of mind
And turn my heart from rage.

My husband said: "Oh, no,
The word is paraclete."
So, now it's running shoes?
I get peace from my feet?

I think that they are both wrong,
I know my Bible reads,
"God gave a Counselor
To help us with our needs."

LOL. This reminds me of a conversation I had many years ago with the mother of my girlfriend at the time.

We were talking about baseball and she said her favorite team was the Parrots.

"The Parrots", I said?

"Yes, the Parrots", she replied. "You know, the Pittsburgh Parrots."

You see, she was originally from west Texas and I being born and raised on the west coast didn't understand that "Parrots" is West Texan for "Pirates".

Countdown to Elianna!
