CBD Promotional Code – Christmas 2008

Okay, I’m not quite ready to start Christmas shopping yet, but that’s just around the corner. I need to order a few books for Club & remembered the CBD coupon code Focus on the Family is offering again. It ends up giving you almost free shipping – 10% off purchases of 35$ or more. The code is 251523FF & this offer ends December 24th, 2008. There are so many wonderful resources, it’s hard to pick just a few. Happy shopping!

Porcupine Songs

I found it!! The “song” the porcupine sings!

Each month we feature a different animal which displays the fruit for the month. Last month, the pelican showed us how to give & give & give, without thinking about what we’ll get out of it. This month, the kids & I have been talking about how joyful the porcupine is in spite of it’s circumstances. The porcupine has a lot of strikes against him (almost blind, very soft head, prickly – few hugs!, etc.) but they “sing”. I hadn’t really ever heard one, but told the kids I’d look on line to see if there was a clip somewhere. FOUND IT!

Go here & click the green “play audio” button. Cool, huh?! There might be other (better) songs they sing, but I haven’t been able to find them on line yet.

Memorizing Philippians 4:4-7

Here’s a few helps to memorizing our JOY verse…

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say, rejoice!”
We sing a song about that. That helps us remember the start.
Next, stroke your hand like a little kitten…

“Let your gentleness”
– Remember us stroking our hands last year to help with “for I am gentle and lowly in heart & you shall find rest for your souls”? This is to remind you about gentleness, too. Be gentle petting that little kitty.

“Be known to all men.”
– Point to your head for known.

“The Lord is at hand.”
– Stick your hands out in front of you.
Next shake your head for no. Remember NOT to do the next thing…

“Be anxious for nothing”
– NOTHING!! We are not to be anxious. Period. Shake your head, wag your fingers, no, NO!

“But in everything, by prayer & supplication…”
– Put your hands in the praying position.

“and with thanksgiving”
– !! Don’t forget this part! Put your hands up & wiggle them in praise! Note: this doesn’t say”BY Thanksgiving” or “UNTIL Thanksgiving”! We had two little guys rub their tummies thinking all about that turkey coming up next month. WITH. It’s WITH thanksgiving (little t).

“let your requests be made known to God.”
– Point up to God to Whom you tell what you need.

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding”
– Say the first part kind of quickly, then say “all” really drawn out.

“will guard your hearts”
– Put both hands on your heart.

“and your minds”
– Put your hand to your head.

“through Christ Jesus.”
– It’s all because of Him. PTL!
