VBS Day 3

VBS Day3

Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory . . . 

All God’s critters got a place in the choir . . . 

Jesus loves me, this I know . . . 

He’s got the whole world in his hands . . . 

Singing and laughing and lots of hand motions
Observing the bold children mistaking their way through
and the less sure, some afraid to try lest they get it wrong
All of them jumping up and down today
midway time of running and playing
and Jesus – where is Jesus in all this?
I’m pretty sure Jesus is there in the grass
running and laughing and playing with the best of them
Do I worry about whether they ‘get’ the lesson?
Not so much
I’m figuring any time spent in sheer joy
that’s associated with Jesus
and church is a good thing –
a worthy memory for a child
to carry into adulthood
Oh, and there’s Miss Wilma’s cookies too
