Day 194, July 11

A few days ago, my husband and I were standing in line in the grocery store.  In front of us was a lady buying a number of juice packets, saying that she was getting them for her church's Vacation Bible School.

It transported me to years ago when I took our children to the VBS of different churches in our town.  Our children loved the stories about Jesus, the crafts, the music.  (And I loved a few moments of quiet during otherwise hectic and noisy summers.)  I admired the teachers who gave of their time and energy so freely.  I know enough about teaching in church to understand that the lessons and crafts did not come without effort.  These teachers did it for love, love of the children and love of the Lord.

So, for today, I am grateful for Vacation Bible School teachers and leaders.


  1. I enjoyed at the end of the week when they would ask who would like to come forward and "be saved". And we would be the ones in the back saying, "no, we're all good". But it was fun to go and we did learn.

  2. I still remember VBS and I'm totally with Rob on thinking how interesting the last day would be. I never did go up saying that I needed to be saved. LOL
