I know, kind of makes you wish you were here doesen't it?
Emily had the day off of school today, so she came over early. While, I was at work, she made supper for us, and she organized a craft. The craft hanging on the wall has the Bible verse John 15:12 on it. "This is my commandment that you love one another". She cut out heart shapes in pink, red, and white, and the rest of the kids colored them or wrote the words from the verse on them.
Allison was able to write out every word, and she loved it. Rylar lasted through three hearts, and Enzo made it through one. But everyone got a ribbon on it, so they can hang it on the wall.
For our Bible time tonight, we talked about the gospel since last time we talked about the law (10 Commandments). After we learned the bad news about what sin is and how it separates us from God, we learned the good news of who Jesus is and about how he came to earth, lived a sinless life, and died as the punishment for our sins, so that we can be in relationship with God once again (the way He intended it at the beginning of time).
Clara recited John 3:16-17 for us:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
Another Cookie Baking Night has come and gone, and it was a lively one. As usual, a fun time was had by all.
