A Christian Summer

Schools out, schools out
Teachers let the monkeys out
One went east, one went west,
One went..............  well I let you finish the rest of the chant.  :)

Summer time is upon us and in full swing . . . summer movies, swimming, vacations, and


Our 2 kiddos attend at least one Vacation Bible School.  Usually more but AT LEAST one.

And for our family, Vacation Bible School means games, new friends, food, and most importantly God.

I must admit . . . . it is FRUGAL.  Little to no cost other than gas. 

However, I look forward to VBS for the kids because they enjoy going to learn about God.  They come home singing new songs about God, and they learn new things that they didn't know about God.

My oldest daughter memorized loads of scripture at VBS last week.

Tomorrow, our church, starts a 3 day Backyard Bible Club at a park near the church.  This will take the place of a "traditional" vacation bible school.

That means 3 days of new facts, new fun and new friends centered around learning about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

It is sad to think that during the summer so many families miss church due to "summer time fun". We all know the drill for so many "christians". . .

Going places . . . besides church,

Taking vacations . . . missing church,

Enjoying life . . . without Christ

I can continue but I hope you get my point.

I am not frowning on vacations and fun but remember to put Christ at the center of all that you do, summer vacation included.

I pray that your family is blessing your children with a Christ filled summer wherever you go and whatever you do.
