"If You Don't Say It, You'll Make God Sad."
Several weeks ago in K-4 Sunday school, I was teaching the kids their memory verses. After we went over our verse, I have the childen say the verse to me. If they say it, they get a sticker to put on their sticker chart. Several of my kids said their verse. I asked this boy if he wanted to say his verse. He said, "No." Another boy told him, "If you don't say it, you'll make God sad." I thought that was so precious and sweet. God does want us to say and memorize His Word. So, the K-4 year old boy spoke truth. Well, the little boy did say his verse to me that day. I just thought it was neat on what came "Out of the Mouth of Babes."
I am a born again Christian. That is the most important thing to know about me. Being a Christian is the greatest honor and privilege in a person's life (my life!). Being a Christian, I sought and followed God's will for my life. He gave me a love for children and led me to be a teacher. I'm not just a teacher, but I have the awesome and amazing privilege to be a Christian school teacher. I teach at the Christian school associated with my church in Richmond, Virginia. I am a first grade teacher, and I love it! I love working with and teaching "my children." But, I love most serving the Lord and teaching these kids that God has given me more about Him. What a blessing! Now, being a Christian isn't always easy. It is a constant learning experience. On my blogs, I share with you some of the great things I get to experience from working with children--- "Out of the Mouth of Babes." I am also showing how I am Learning to Lean on God's Arms. That is a personal "diary" of sorts of things the Lord is teaching me, as His child.
