Talking to and About our Children to Jesus

No further words needed. This was a very popular quote at our Facebook page recently and well it should be. We can all identify.

Remember Him to Your Children

"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat, this is my body. And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." Matthew 26:26-28

"Since that night Christian people in all the world celebrate the Lord's Supper by eating bread and drinking wine in memory of the death of our dear Lord. The bread and wine are signs that we share in the forgiveness of sins which His death made possible. To those who truly love Jesus, and who come to Him to have their sins forgiven, the Lord's Supper is sacred." ~ Catherine F. Vos, The Child's Story Bible

Remember Him to your children. Teach them what this was (and is) all about.

Helping and Working

See? You're never too young to be a helper. Remember the daily Bright Gems prayers at the Facebook page? Well, since they're based on the devotions in the book, naturally today's was about helping, with a particular emphasis on the fact that even the youngest child can be a helper. This picture is certainly illustrating that. Also, it's also a little reminder about tomorrow's topic, working hard.

Precious Treasure

We had our first "Daughter Day" at Facebook yesterday and this was one of the posts. No more need be said, except that I have a particular heart for little girls, not just because I have only daughters and granddaughters and no boys, but because it's just always been that way. But boys will not be totally neglected here. However, there will probably be more Daughter Days at the FB page for the reason already stated.

Girls themselves are treasures in a very special way, and most boys and young men come to realize this eventually. So what we can say to parents and grandparents of boys is to make sure your sons/grandsons know this and treat them as such.
