Today we sang with the adults before sunday school. Noble and Dignity were not there yet and Puddleglum was with his Grandma for the day. He was going to Grandma’s church and then the child would go with his great uncle fishing out on a boat. That left Yuri and Periwinkle under the Farmer’s care. We sang “Jesus Loves Me” and followed it up with prayer then finished off with “Go Tell It On the Mountain.” Farmer sat at the piano and pressed the key for the beginning note.
From there we went and sang Happy Birthday to Dignity. Violet came down from the upper class to one hand Happy Birthday for us.
Obviously, the Farmer needs to think of a way to get the kids piano lessons. (Anyone want to buy any books? Look for C. C. Farmer on Amazon. Every 25 cents helps.)
Once again we prayed before we started class. Our prayer consisted of “Dear Lord, before we get on youtube, please don’t allow us to see any inappropriate advertisements. Amen.”
And yes our prayers were answered. Since it was my Anne account there were only documentaries. I did feel awkward because I had my Dairy Promotion Team as my background. I guess I was thinking that since I am in God’s house with my computer I was opening my soul or private life to the kids in my class. Anyways I apologized for stating that a bull was at the table with Jezabel.
Then we watched a youtube video.
After which we turned to Matthew 18. And we read parts of the chapter and talked about steering clear of temptation. I used the example of an animal sanctuary. If I drove by it everyday I would bring home animals, therefore to keep myself away from temptation I would take the few minutes longer route and stay away from the temptation.
We talked a bit about how to let the Lord take vengeance and resist “teaching the other person a lesson.”
Then we hurried and cleaned up, had a quick snack and hurried over to the sanctuary for Grandparents Day.
During the service guess what happened? Dignity stood up and sang a song that blew me away. Gorgeous voice. Gorgeous. Then guess what bible verses Pastor L read? Yep it was from Matthew 18. Be Humble. Be Humble. Be Humble.
