Tonight’s devotion was so fun! We talked about CHURCH and what it is all about really.. Is is just a building? Is it a place or we just sing? So, our family met for Hay Happens tonight and we “popcorn” shared words that we think of when we think of church.
The next step: Let’s make a poem/rap. I love this part.
Here it is!
Hay Church Rap
Worship Singing Praising God
This is Church
And this is what we got
Awaken your senses
Play guitar and take your chances
Smiling Greeting Joyful Singing
Let’s get the Jesus
In us Ringing
Do you like?? It took us about 5 minutes to put together. (I guess it kind of shows! HA!)
The other day, Tatum got to have lunch with Mama! She loves spending time with her.
Don’t they look so cute?
Mama wrote this to me:
Seen lunching at Nordstrom’s on Mon., July 26, 2021. She got an ice cream shirt and matching earrings while we shopped.
A darling sidenote: When she went into the bedroom to visit Coti she passed by the floor length mirror and she curtsied to herself holding the sides of her dress as she did. How feminine and sweet! Where did she learn about royalty? She did look like a princess!
Our meeting this week was another creative endeavor. The teacher in me tends to come out since it has been dormant for a while~ Ha!
So, I had my loves sit down and hear me out: “I’m going to read our mission statement and I want you to write down three words that you hear or that resonate with you. Then, we’ll draw what that means to you!”
Here we go:
And there they go.
Tatum went first.
She drew these three words: grateful, strive, committed.
The first guy is showing his gratitude journal; the second guy is striving in his garden, and the third guy is committed to swimming his best!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! Ok, my honey went next.
His was quite deep and lovely! Words: Family, God, Love We, as a family, are on a journey. (toward GOD!), and we are crossing the rivers of adversity, but we have LOVE keeping us together and focused as we journey towards him daily. It’s a daily endeavor, but with each other and God, we shall persevere. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
OK, now me.
Words: Honor, Grace, Love.
Rooted and grounded in LOVE, our family HONORS God. Daddy and I surround Tatum (with protection and love) as we Honor God; she has her eyes on God, and she honors us which in turn honors God. This allows us all to have GRACE for each other and for all. This all comes from our root of Love that grounds us all. We, Team Hay, will continue on in his LOVE journey. XXOO
