We successfully remembered the first one.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. For The Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
I'm paying them for memorizing the verse. (And taking it away for acting like crazy fools.)
The second verse is directed to the ugliness that has been taking over at my house. It was really bad over the Christmas break....so I picked a scripture and version that speaks to us.
Ephesians 4:29 (The Message)
Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps. Each word a gift.
We practiced this morning.
Michael was able to paraphrase.... "Watch what you say. Don't let bad words come out of your mouth. Say only nice things".
Katelynn (who has decided to go by Kate because she is tired of writing her whole name on her paper at school) decided to read it. "Witch the way you talk. Let nothing fool or dirty come out of your mother. Say only what helps. Each word a gift."
Not quite....but we got some of the words right. Had to share....made me giggle.
Blessings and Joy,
