Got your message all prepared for next Sunday? I hope I don't miss hearing you this time. I was really disappointed that I was sick the last time.

I know by all the things you bring in that you are very very busy with your veggies. not much spare time left for anything else, I wouldn't think.

all the best

Working on the message - I'm having a hard time thinking up some good message for the kids.

RE: Ole Joyful

heres an idea Ed-go to a hortons and listen to what the kids have to say today-you wont be long coming up with a message after that visit

RE: Ole Joyful

Ed, maybe these poems will inspire your thinking:

Children Learn What They Live

If a child lives with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive,
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves,
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
But do not despair ...
If a child lives with tolerance, they learn to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If a child lives with praise, they learn to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, they live with justice.
If a child lives with security, they live to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, they learn to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship.
they learn to find love in the world.

Love Me For Me

Dear Mom and Dad,

My hands are little --

I don't mean to spill my milk,

My legs are short --

Please - slow down so I can keep up with you,

When I touch something bright and shiny,

Please don't slap my hands.

Please look at me when I talk to you.

I just need to know you're listening.

Let me make mistakes without feeling stupid --

My feelings are delicate.

Please don't expect the bed I made to be perfect --

Just Love me for trying.

Remember, I am a child -- not an adult.

Sometimes I don't understand the things you say.

Please just love me for being me,

Not for the things I can do.

I love you mom and dad. You're all I have.

How about showing them how strong Jesus is.
Ask the children how strong Jesus is....Stronger than a toothpick or a nail. If they don't know give one a toothpick and another a nail. Tell them to try to break them and they will see that Jesus is very strong as a nail
and those who do not beleive in Him can easily be broken as a toothpick, but if you beleive in Him , you will become
as strong as the nail.

Taking some garden tools, I think.

RE: Ole Joyful

If there aren't more kids than last Sunday you won't need to wory too much. But I guess you have to tell it to the young at heart adults, don't you? Only 1 young baby sitting in the congregation last week - not many adults either. Summertime, I guess.
