Going Off Script

With my preteens (4th and 5th grade kids), I went off script. I realized these kids had grown up in church with knowing all the words but not usually getting the meaning behind them. So dig deep and find out if they really get it or just the lingo. So I took the tiny word “joy” and did a search and we explored that word in the old teatament, in worship of Psalms, in wisdom of Proverbs, in the Holy Spirit and the new testament. And the kids had fun and learned so much! And now when people throw out the “joy” word, they gets its true meaning and that is priceless. To see actual joy in preteens is something very precious!😄 Don’t be afraid to go off script with preteens. They love it.❤

Quilting Again

As baby will soon be here for long visits, I am making a baby quilt to cuddle baby safely here. I am doing a small biscuit or puff quilt with a calming aquarium theme. I will take pictures when I have more than just the cutout fabric (which was my afternoon). I had thought I was finished quilting for a while but alas, need to cozy our grand baby up with love. Quilts take dedicated effort, which to me is love. To me, you spend time on someone you love. And it is truly rewarding to love someone. And we will make time for this precious little baby and his comfort. And may God convey this love to them through this act of love. May God bless all our efforts where loving people is concerned. May God be praised!😄❤
