I just realized today it is only two months until Christmas. This year with all the busyness not much Christmas shopping has gotten done so much of it will be on-line this year.
I love my church. There is ALWAYS something for everyone. Last week our church passed out Faith-Filled Holiday Packages. Our series right now is on “It Starts At Home”. You know it really does. We have to model it, live it and be it. Are you doing that today with your kids and grandkids? I know sometimes I am a failure. This morning we were reminded even as grandparents to be praying for our kids, grandchildren and generations to come that they might know Him. Do you do that? I do pray for the kids and grandkids and ask God to bless them, but I have so failed in praying that promise for generations to come. Psalm 78:6 – “That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, That they may arise and tell them to their children,”
I love the package and thought I would share an Autumn idea and then let you know where you can go find more.
I picked up two of these books last Sunday for my grandsons. I’ll be giving them to the boys this week. Shhhhh. Hope the girls aren’t reading this blog. In the coming days I’ll be sharing a few of the ideas for faith-filled holidays, and the first one is all about the pumpkin. The idea is to buy a large pumpkin and use it to emphasize that Jesus is the light of the world. You can let children clean out the gunk and talk about Isaiah 64:6 and Romans 3:23. Isn’t that gunk just like our stinky, yucky sin
It talks about drawing a cross on the pumpkin and carving it. I have done that in years past to put on the porch as a witness to those coming to our door on Halloween. You can add a candle and talk about how God is the light of the World. It was funny I saw these books as we passed the library after church and ran in to buy them. I had no idea they would be on the card in our package as a story to use.
Not sure to whom to give credit for the cards. They don’t say. You can find all the cards in our package here and some videos to watch, plus some additional ideas for all the way through Mother’s Day. Go check it out PLEASE!
