And they DON'T get a lot too.
While coloring a picture of a sheep (lesson on the Good Shepherd of course).
One kids says:
"Is it okay if I color my lamby blue? Because the sky is blue & that's where Jesus Lives!?"
And that was just fine with me. (What are you gonna do, make fun of a five year old?)
When I offered the next kid some cotton to glue on his Sheep, he said:
"Nah, my lamby is going to be cold."
What? Should I scold the poor thing for freezing his sheep? Oh well, bald sheep are God's children too.
Later on the same day...
I yawned. Then I said, "boy I'm tired, I need a nap". Likely dreaming about that elusive enigma known as the Sunday Afternoon Nap.
Several kids at once said:
"But not right now! Then you can't teach us."
And another boy said:
"Yeah, then I'd have to be the teacher?"
And wouldn't that be fun? A 5 year old teaching the other 5-ers? I'd like to watch through the glass mirror on that one! I can hear it...And God told Eve; you are in trouble. Time-Out!
