1/7/12 Loving our Family

on February 7, 2012

“How can we show our love today?”……..”We can can be kind in our words and play. That’s how we show our love today,” is the song we sing in circle to remind us to love others. One way we show love to our family is being ready to forgive those who wrong us and then act as if no wrong has been done because the Bible says that Jesus can not forgive us unless we forgive others. We learned how Joseph was an incredible example of forgiving family members who have wronged you. When Joseph’s jealous brothers cruelly sold him away, life became very hard. But because Joseph trusted in God, God eventually turned Joseph’s sad circumstances around and even blessed him with great success and influence. God helped Joseph’s heart towards his brothers to soften so that when they came to him during a time of famine begging for food, he was able to forgive them and meet their need in kindness. As a result, the whole family was brought back to together again and brotherly love was restored. Forgiving is hard to do but well worth it.

The kids were excited to find that their mailboxes had mail from someone who loves them. The kindness spread as some of them decided to do likewise and make special valentines during Centers to put in their friends mailboxes. They enjoyed stamping out the letters in their friends names on the valentines and it was cool to see how they are beginning to recognize not only their own names, but each others names in print too! That is an accomplishment for 3 year olds worth noting!

Hugs for you Tayler! Tayler is making Noah a valentine and Noah is making himself a valentine. :/

Faithy looks on as David bakes up a tasty Valentine concoction.

Woo hoo! We made our own indoor slippery slide to avoid the muddy outdoors.

Sweet valentines for the elderly to take when we visit their care home this week. We will be passing out black hearts as color mixing became a favorite pastime.

(note to self: tape over the black and brown watercolors next time) 😉
