Jeeba the Amoeba is an inspirational book in poetic form. It is a story about appreciation.
All the way down at the ocean’s floor, lives an Amoeba; a creature 100 times smaller than a single grain of sand.
What can we learn from an Amoeba?
Perhaps the smallest Amoeba can teach a child the single biggest, and most valuable of all life’s lessons, especially when our world needs it most; how to love, respect, appreciate and see God in each other.
When pigtails comb out into straight
and the stuffed bear’s stored away
When the marbles and the coloring books
have finally seen their day
When the wheels of rusty roller skates
can no longer turn
and the embers of the early days
have long ceased to burn
When the weary plastic soldiers have
returned home from their wars
and the big three-story doll house
has finally closed its doors
These simple pages keep on giving
’til your final day
Oh, you’ll put them down
for a spell and
you might walk away
And although perhaps you won’t return
to this very book per se
there are Jeebas in many forms
you’ll find along the way
If the message here is less than clear
Can’t find its way to your head
And you can no longer lift this book
You probably are dead

Read an Excerpt
This is a story ...
about appreciation. Think of how if the ocean is. All the way down to a single grain of sand along the bottom. An amoeba is 100 times smaller, and yet it lives and crawls and eats.
What can we learn from an amoeba?
Perhaps the smallest amoeba can teach us the biggest lessons: How to see God by appreciating the awesomeness of our universe and each other's contributions.
Along side a coral reef under the sea lived the smallest of creatures there ever could be.
It never saw sunshine, it never felt rain, Nor warmth, nor the cold; it was simple and plain.
It swam at the bottom of the big ocean floor.
Jeeba Amoeba was a cell. Nothing more.
But Jeeba was happy. There was food everywhere. And Jeeba had friends who were always right there.
And though some of them were much bigger than it ... they each had a place, and knew where to fit.
Jeeba would wonder, and ask now and then about its true meaning; the what, why, and when.
"Is what I am now all that I will be? What more is put there for me in the sea?"
A paramecium came crawling with all legs in tact.
"There's more than we know, and that is a fact!"
