You all get an A for helping your children last week!!!! Everyone raised their hand when I asked who read The Story for the week. Way to go parents! The kids did great in both the large group and small group. After I told the kids about God walking with Adam and Eve in the evenings, I told them that was the way God wanted things, that is why He created such a beautiful place for them and why He created them. God wanted it to be like this forever. But He knew it would all change.
This week they will learn about Abraham and the seemingly impossible things God kept asking of him and the promises God made. Please help your young ones read this story. Your reading will be more difficult. My head was spinning after reading about Abram, Sarai, Lot, Haggar, Ishmael, Rebekah, Jacob, Esau, Leah and Rachel. I couldn't keep track of who was who and what they did. The important thing to remember is all of this, ALL OF OF IT, is part of God's plan to get us back in the garden so He can walk with us. What seems impossible to us, what seems crazy and so unimaginable is God working to help us be the people He wants us to be. One day we WILL walk in the garden with God.
God bless you with a fantastic week!
