The Little Ones

I just love children. They are precious, trusting, wide-eye innocent (most of the time), funny, and just adorable. Every Wednesday night I can be found teaching the Toddler/Preschool class at church. I tell them Bible stories -- shock, shock ;) and introduce them the the alphabet, phonics, colors and shapes, etc. They come each week with great anticipation about what we will be doing in class and.... what they will eat. (They love snack time.)

This past week I brought my camera ( Yes! I remembered.) and I got some cute pics of the kids. Some of my munchkins were absent, but here's the one who were there:

They had just finished gluing the letters and the objects that begin with that letter.
They were so proud of their work!
(Ages 2, 3 & 4

I connected my camera to the television so they could see the pictures.
Then while they could still see themselves, I took their picture again.
They are little clowns!

More clowning around!

Laughter and snacks!

Taking care of children is a ministry, even if it's changing a poopy pull-up (had one of those on this night). They respond to love, like to learn and have fun. Jesus said whatever we do unto the least of these, we do it unto Him. Well then, He had himself some fun Wednesday night! :)

I def. think people who do children's ministry have a calling. It is so hard for me to do children's ministry. I work much, MUCH better with teenagers.

But I guess that's why we're all different members of the body, huh?

You are quite the little Sunday School and toddlers on Wed.
I used to keep the Wed. night nursery at our church for years and years. One little girl called me "Vallerina." She's a freshman in high school now and still calls me that for fun.
Many blessings are reaped from those years of sowing.
Thanks for your service to Him!

What a fun bunch! I'd love to see your sweet self in action with these kids. I'm sure I could learn a thing or two.

I love the pictures. You all had some fun. Everyone needs some young people in their lives. We are at that in-between stage so I have to kidnap (babysit) sometimes just to get my fill! They just make you smile--or pull your hair out. Either way, it's never dull. Love, Annette
