Lost

Here’s a cute rendition of the lost sheep for you…

I love the way they show that little sheep trot out of the pen to chase a butterfly. Isn’t that so like us? (Isaiah 53:6)

I am SO thankful for the Lord Jesus! This week, He has reminded me again & again of His grace & patience & love. Have you had a chance to remind your children this week?

Those bags of coins sent home last Wednesday are reminders. Send one in your child’s lunch bag or jacket pocket & tell them to remember how very much God loves him/her when they see it. He never leaves us even when we wander from Him. Even though we don’t deserve it. What grace!

Another idea for the coins is to play a few rounds of hide & go seek with them. Let them do the hiding once & you go look for them. Remind them again that just like the woman with the coin, the shepherd, and the father of the runaway son, God never gives up seeking & saving. That’s why He sent Jesus. (Luke 19:10) What a wonderful God we have! Thank Him together this week for His incomprehensible steadfast love that endures forever.

Hi-YAH!

As You Walk Along the Way…

Today was errand running day so I took the kids to Burger King for lunch. Jack was all excited about getting a crown. He didn’t think of it, but about half way through lunch, it dawned on me that he had a crown on his head after church Sunday – his lesson was about King David. I commented to him about it & we had a five minute talk on David & all Jack’s learned about him recently. It wasn’t deep, but so important. This is how those lessons taught at church sink into his little heart & he knows the stories learned at church are important to Mommy, too. This is what is meant by “Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” (Deuteronomy 6:7) Pray for those kinds of connections! God loves to bring them. : ]

This week, take your child out to your garden if you have one, & let them weed beside you as you remind them of the four kinds of hearts/soil we talked about in Club last night. Pray God directs your conversation. Pray for alertness to those opportunities as they come throughout the week. Be intentional about it. Then come back to Club & tell us about what God did in your family last week. It encourages all of us to hear about those times.

“When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours.” – Romans 1:12

Discovering Something New…

I just learned something new so I can be better at what I do! Figured out how to have videos posted under the Club Photos. Now if you want to watch a Virtue Video, you can just click the picture there on the strip (this month, it’s the one with the guy wearing a hat & the guy in the blue shirt), and either will take you to our Club Flickr site. Then all you have to do is click the blue words that say “watch this video” down at the bottom there. It will take you to the Vimeo site where Orange keeps all their new videos. Nice! If you have a few minutes, take a look at one of them. I’m thinking we may watch one in Club this or next Wednesday if we have time.
Until then,
Hi-YAH!
