Every Monday Matters

How can we show God’s amazing love in simple ways?  How can we teach our children about serving others?  With young children, especially preschoolers, this can be challenging.  So every Monday, we have decided to rise to the challenge and Make Monday Matter and find a way to show God’s love in our community.

Once, someone asked Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?" Jesus told this story. "Once upon a time, a man got mugged. They beat him up, took his money, and left him bleeding. A little while later, a preacher walked by, but didn't stop to help. Then a judge walked by, but didn't stop to help. Finally, I no good nobody walked by. That one stopped, did some quick first aid, took him to the hospital, and left some money to pay the bill. Then, this no-good nobody even checked back later to make sure the man was ok." Which of these three was a neighbor to the man? Today, we're going to be good neighbors by giving away cold lemonade on a hot day because real neighbors find a way to help.

Boys swim trunks have pockets!  Someone should have told me.  Girls swim suits do not have pockets.  Why would someone need pockets in a garment that is meant to get wet?  Everything in the pocket would get wet.  I now know their fill up with pebbles from the beach.  My bathroom, bath tub, washing machine, dryer, and laundry room are covered in pebbles.  I had no idea how butt cheeks could hold so many rocks.  I didn't have my revelation until I pulled the trunks out of the dryer and couldn't figure out why they were so heavy.  After trying to wring out the water, I discovered half a pocket still full of pebbles.

We now have a new rule in our house...All pockets must be empty BEFORE leaving the beach.
