I hope all of you had a very Blessed Sunday!!
It was cold and damp here today as We headed out for church. It was one of those days when I did not want to get out of bed and go to church. It would have been so easy to have done that. I stayed up until 1:00 this morning reading. So did I let the devil win??? No I did not. I drugged out of my nice warm comfortable bed and went to church.
Boy did God sock it to me!!!
I get to church and the children kept coming. Had a really nice size class.
Today after the main lesson we talked about Thanksgiving and what it meant to each of us. Then we went around the room and each child took turns telling what they were thankful for. We got the normal things, such as, their parents, family members, pets and some talked about the soldiers fighting for our country. ( to answer your question these are 1st through 3rd graders).
Then one child looked up at me and said Mrs. Mary I am thankful for you!
With tears in my eyes I told this child and all the others I was thankful for each of them and loved them.
So the devil did not win and God was Praised and I received a beyond words special gift and Blessing!!!!
