|As it started this morning|
I was teaching Nursery Class yesterday morning when I learned something about my godson, Jacob. He really likes the story of God calling Samuel when he was a little boy. He kept saying, "Tell it again, Aunt Kimi." Of course, I had to be animated and loud but that is the fun of teaching little ones. You can be as wild as you wish, they love it!! I asked the class, "What are you going to do if you hear God call your name? What are you going to say?" Jacob says, "Here I am LORD, speak!" I had to tell the story three times. I love working in Nursery Class. They like to sing and dance, listen to short stories, do craft and of course, EAT! Our little Sage growled at my daughter Juliana when she told her no more snack. Sage is 2 and had me cracking up. She always says, 'More please", in her little Snow White voice.

This is was at his house
We have to examine ourselves and make sure that we are giving the best we have because they are worth it. What we say, how we act, where we go, how we love, how we react, who we hang with, what they see us do...We Are Responsible. They are observing us, learning from us, imitating us.
It's not a burden, it's a blessing to be a part of their lives. I love when it is my turn for Nursery Class at Christ the King Church. What an honor to be a small part of teaching these gifts straight from the heart of God about Jesus, Samuel, David, Mary, Paul and Silas, Praise, Love, Giving...Teaching them the songs I grew up on and seeing the little spark in their eyes like it's a brand new song. We sang, "Everybody Ought To Know" in class. Presley and Sage loved it and after Jacob realized that we weren't going to sing the Power Rangers theme song, he liked it too.
