God Time

Today I am in my office at church looking over the God time cards for this week. Day 4 is soooo good. It reminds us that initiative has 2 parts. 2 count em 1, 2--SEEING what needs to be done and DOING it. God says when we SEE someone who needs help, you need to DO something about it. This week we learned about looking for ways to care about the people we love. But you don't have to know someone to care about them. Two ways you can show love to someone you don't know are to save your allowance and donate to someone in need or to take some of your old, but good clothes and toys and donate them to a group that will give them out to people in need.
Maybe you can think up your own creative way to help others. Let me know Sunday what you came up with. Well, I'm going to dress warmly to watch Trevor play football tonight. GO TITANS!!! What are you doing this weekend? Let me know what kind of fun you plan to have--and look for ways to show initiative while you are at it!

tODAY'S QUESTION OF THE WEEK IS. . . . . (drumroll please)

The midwives in our story from the book of Exodus in the Bible showed initiative by protecting the Israelite babies from Pharoah. What did God do to reward the midwives for caring for those that they loved??????

I spy with my crazy little eyes

Here's Ms Monica with her CRAZY eyes in class Sunday. Remember this week to be looking ways that you can care for the people you love. That's an awesome way to show what. . .
INITIATIVE, that's what!!!!!!

Who is that masked man?

Here James is a masked man. He played the part of a pharisee--they tried to hide behind the laws instead of just listening to Jesus and doing what he said. James looked pretty cool in that mask, don't cha think?


Some of you may know Chris Cook. He's the youth/children's minister at Bowen Christian Church and he was one of the dean's of Jr. 3 camp. Here he is with some of our kids in a "Lazarus" contest at Walk Thru the Bible Sunday.

Question of the Week

What was the name of the guy who showed initiative by leading a group of people to rebuild Jerusalem's wall in our story Sunday? Anybody know?

Jacob got caught . . .making the wise choice

Jacob Duffin must have been listening Sunday. He went home and took the INITIATIVE to help his mom out when she wasn't feeling well. I heard there were some dirty dishes in the sink, and Jacob washed them all without EVEN being asked. How cool is is that? High Five to you, man!

Congratulations Macey!!!

Macey Black sent me the right answer to all of my questions. She knew John the Baptist ate locusts and honey, and she knew 2 ways that Joseph had to trust God. Way to go, Macey!

This, for those of you who don't know, is my little dog, Smokey! Yes, the same Smokey who eats my chapsticks, gets in the cereal pantry, and somehow or other gets locusts shells on his head. He got this at the park and didn't even know it. Who knows the famous Bible character who ate locusts with honey??? EWWWW! I'd want mine with chocolate!

I am soooo sad. We had no winner for the blogspot contest, because not one person even tried to answer this week. One mom told me that her kids were a little shy about answering. C'mon now! Give it a try. TRUST ME--go ahead, put your confidence in someone you can depend on!

This week's question is. . . (Drumroll please) tell me 2 ways that Joseph trusted God in his life. (Think about the puzzle pieces and the stories you heard all month.) First one to respond wins. GO!

I will be in Iowa City Monday visiting Ms. Kim in the hospital. So I will see you Tuesday. Remember to sign up for WALK THRU and SKATING.

Love ya,
Ms. Dawn

Well! There is no winner yet to the TRUST question. But we have had 24 hits to our blogspot. So either one person has looked 24 times, or a few someones have started to look. So what is trust? That's what I want to know this week. Do you remember what the bulletin board says, that is the answer I am looking for.

Y'all have a great day now. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
Love your innards,
Ms. Dawn
