Best part: Putting on the pumpkins and the vines.
Everyone has their own style
While the brownies were cooling, we read from Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland. Tonight we read chapter 14 titled "God Has Many Names". We talked about the importance of a name. In our lesson, we only scratched the surface of the many names ascribed to God in the Bible with Mighty One, Father, Lord. We read from Exodus 3 in the Bible, where God calls himself the great I AM. We learned that with this one name He is telling us that "He has no beginning", "He has always existed" "He does not change" "He will always be the same" We also talked about His name JESUS , which the Bible tells us is above all names. The Bible also tells us that someday every knee will bow at that name. This name also tells us that He is our Savior.
I love to study the names of God and to teach them to my nieces and nephews because they tell us so much about the character and nature of the faithful God we serve.
We rounded out the evening with a few lively games of Zingo and Pass the Pigs. As usual, a fun time was had by all.
One other highlight of the evening was visiting the two newest members of our household, Rusty and Peanuts, two little cockatiels that moved in with us shortly after my parents did. The children love to watch them. Near as I can tell, it's better than T.V.
