VBS Reflection & The Weekend Ahead~
I am always amazed by the younger crowd (2-5s)...they are like little sponges absorbing EVERYTHING and ANYTHING. Even though most squirmed the entire time the Bible story was being told, when asked what we talked about the day before, or two days before, or even three days before, they remembered EVERYTHING!!!!
A touching story, and one that makes it all worth while for a teacher...our verse for the week was "God helps me. I will not be afraid. Hebrews 13:6" One of the children's mothers stopped by and said, "I just have to tell you...she was out in the yard with her dad last night. A bee kept flying around them. Her dad told her not to worry or be afraid, it would be okay. She turned to her dad and said, "God helps me, I will not be afraid"...and then quoted the book and number of the verse! Dad was speechless!!!
I wanted to cry...they GOT IT!!!
They have one more day of Bible School...sadly we won't be there to experience the grand finale (the youngest is having her wisdom teeth out sharply at 9AM!), but we are thrilled to hear that 54, 54 children, accepted the Lord Jesus Christ this week! Many of whom are not members of our church, but were invited by friends.
My thoughts going in..."if this makes a difference in even ONE child's life, it is all worth it." However, we touched close to 500 little lives this week. AMAZING!!!
Praying everyone has a wonderful weekend.
To my fellow Georgia bloggers...I pray all survived today's storms unharmed!
