|Panda Mania VBS 2011|
It is a challenging week though. I work full-time and then go straight to VBS. That makes for one tired girl! But there is a reason I do it year after year. It is the look in the children's eyes as they watch us. It is hugging, talking, and high-fiving the kids.
I almost get choked up thinking about the role I play. I am one of the lights of Jesus to these children. Some of these kids never set foot in a church any other way. They come to have fun. Well, I hope they feel loved and through us, they see Jesus.
|Jesus hugs the children|
Tonight, is my favorite night of the VBS week! Jesus comes out and all the kids go up to him and hug him. Then we pray and kids can invite Jesus into their hearts. It is always emotional.
My neighbor, Jeffrey, plays Jesus. Last year, a little boy named Jacob, with Down's Syndrome, gave him a hug and his heart just melted (There is a wondrous story about Jeffrey and Jacob. I will write about it soon).
Thank you, God for your love. May I pass it on. Amen
