God Gives Us a Family

Joseph settles his family in Egypt. (Genesis 45:16 -47:27)

"For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:26)

A good way to wrap up the week:)

God Gives Us Forgiveness

Joseph forgave his brothers. Something so many of us couldn't do. (Genesis 42:6-45:15)

"But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become angry, and rich in unfailing love." Nehemiah 9:17

Go. Read. Now.

God Gives Us Wisdom

Genesis 41:41 - 42:5 shows us how Joseph leads Egypt through famine. Wink, wink:)

The key verse is James 1:5.

"If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you."

It's funny. This is something very easy, but we, the crazy people of the world, can't seem to ever be able to do it. Weird, huh? It is the fact that we have so much pride and we think we can do everything, all by ourselves.

God Gives Us Special Abilities

Genesis 41:1-40 explains to us how Pharaoh put Joseph in charge. Go look it up.

Remember The Ballad of Little Joe? It's that story.

Our memory verse tonight is Romans 12:6.

"In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well."

We are supposed to use our gifts to spread His Word.

So... go. Now:) You know what I mean.

God Gives Us Hope

Genesis 40:1-23 explains to us that Joseph interpreted dreams in prison. You have to go read it to find out the rest of it:)

Our Bible verse tonight is Jeremiah 29:11.

" 'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.' "

One of my fave verses ever.

Did you know that Joseph is the first prisoner mentioned in the Bible? Huh...

GTG. Go look that scripture up. Now. Go get your Bible. Don't tell yourself you will do it later. I have been there, forgotten that.

Oh VBS...

I know it is to teach kids about God. I know that. But that doesn't mean it isn't one of the longest weeks ever.

This year we are in Egypt. This is my first year to be a helper. To be honest, I am a little excited.

I will be an assistant to Miss R (a really cool girl in her '20s who is just like me:) (she's single -wink, wink:). Our group is called the Asyuts. Pronounced As-YUU-ts. That is what the book said at least.

I am going to try to set it up where every night this week I post what we learned. I didn't explain it will, but you'll see:)

Tuesday I have to teach part of it because Miss R has something to go to. Scary!! I went over the lesson yesterday. It isn't too bad.

It will just be hard to make the to-be 6th graders to obey me. They are pretty much all boys and just a "teensy" bit wild. Who am I kidding?!?! They run around screaming like monkeys. Except one of the boys, B, is one of my best friends, so he doesn't count as a monkey. As long as he obeys me. MWA HA HA HA!!

~ Side-note: I don't like using real people's names, so I just use the first letter of their first names. ~

K. GTG set up this week's blog posts. Adios.

Snow Cone Machine :)

This is what I have been eating all week. :)

We got a mini snow cone machine at Wal-Mart this week for $20. It rocks and works really well. We got the flavors Blue Raspberry and "Bug Juice", a.k.a. Strawberry Banana. I mix them:)

My mom just uses the ice to make "Diet Mountain Dew Slushies"...

Today my friend-who I shall call "K"- is coming over. I plan to get in our bathing suits and use a hose and the trampoline... let your mind wander...ooo000OOO000ooo.

G2G. Adios.
