It was awesome to see a new group of students in the K-2nd chapel and see some students I have subbed for in the 3-4th grade chapel. And of course it is always lovely to see all my teacher friends!
I have to say the students were so well behaved and very attentive, and the 3rd and 4th graders were super smart!!! I love hearing the kids recite Scripture and know Bible facts...it's just awesome!
We then recited 1 Thessalonians 5: 18 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Then we reviewed Psalm 100: 4-5
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. 5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
I asked for three helpers to tell me the three reasons why we should be thankful to God:
1. God is Good
2. His love never runs out (it endures forever)
3. He keeps his promises (He's faithful)
The older and wiser kids helped me review each of the plagues and then we talked about the importance of being thankful. I shared my list of 10 things I was thankful for and then each child was given a leaf and they were to write what they were thankful for. We made Thankful trees to hang in each building!
Overall it was a great day, and I was blessed by each child there!
Thank you Lord for Christian schools where we are free to pray and teach our children about you!!!
