Our new church only has VBS for one day, but the day is jam packed with outdoor activities, crafts, lots and lots of music, sweet little ones, art, games and time to spread the Gospel.  As for the leaders, it is indeed a full day and most of them need to get there feet up and their backs propped up by the end of it – but what fun to spend time with these precious little ones.

It’s been many years since I’ve been involved in VBS, but because we are a church in a rebuilding process, every bit of help is necessary – even from us old fogies.  We may not be able to keep up physically with all the activity, but we certainly have lots of wisdom (through years of experience) to share.  The little ones don’t realize yet that grandmas and grandpas don’t know much.

In the meeting prior to this special day, our pastor shared the Bible passages pertaining to Jesus admonishing His disciples for trying to keep the youngsters away.  Like many in church today, some believe that children can be a distraction.  But Jesus reminds all of us to be just like those little lambs.  They have a faith that we should be imitating – one open minded and without question.  Our prayer was that God would give us the energy, the love and same care for our charges that Jesus showed  during the time of His ministry.  Letting them know how much they are loved by their Savior is a great gift – not only for children, but or all of us.

So the day ended successfully.  God’s Word was shared.  Children’s voices filled the sanctuary and I’m exhausted.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
