Vacation Bible School!!!


It's Friday? Already? Where in the world did the week go?!!!!

I'm excited--next week is VBS at our church and we ladies are getting ready for it. It's our first one since 2003, because of a flood in 2004 that necessitated a lot of repairs to our building and which destroyed many of our supplies. But we're trying to get going again and no, we're not doing Noah and the flood (get it?), we're doing Moses and the Ten Commandments.

Many of you know how it is with VBS. I think this is the first year that I'm not a teacher or teacher's helper--I opted for nursery duty as a change of pace (can you guess why?) and providing the teacher's visual aids, so I may have more time than usual during VBS week. That means that hopefully, I'll be able to post. We'll see.

Pray for our efforts, even be they small, that the Lord will use them in the life of young folks.

Most perfect is the law of God,
Restoring those that stray;
His testimony is most sure,
Proclaiming wisdom's way.

The precepts of the Lord are right;
With joy they fill the heart;
The Lord's commandments all are pure,
And clearest light impart.

I can't believe it's almost here! I have been busy wielding my scissors, cutting out Moseses and baskets and Red Sea waves. I'm excited to see how it all turns out!

My children have always loved attending VBS - and then working as helpers once they were to old to participate. It is a wonderful program.

I hope you have a great time in VBS. I used to love it. I am sure you will have a great time wherever you help and I am sure the Lord will use you. Have a great weekend. connie from Texas

Unfortunately Bible School is the only Biblical instruction that some little ones get. Praise God for the opportunity to plant the seeds!!!! We know God can grow them no matter what the circumstances for these little ones.

I use to do puppets for VBS when my children were younger. I pray the week goes wonderfully and the children are completely blessed with memories to carry their entire life.

A pleasure to meet you.

We had 300 kids (yes, you heard me). It was CRAZY! I was only a helper.

Have a great time!

BTW, when it's over, you've been tagged, Nanna.

Hugs from your old 360 friend!

I'm praying for you. VBS can be an exhausting, but rewarding week. May you (and EVERYONE in service this week!) be energized, encouraged and blessed. It is indeed a very worthy ministry.

Maxine,
thanks for stopping by Dancing In The Light. I hope you come back again. Enjoy VBS--we just finished ours and when 200 children were running around singing, laughing and screaming, it was such a blessed sound--"for such is the Kingdom of Heaven"---just beautiful.
Have a blessed week, new friend
peace
Neva
