Hijinks At The Church Part ll- Creations













"For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him." Col. 1:15


This is my second and final post on our granddaughter's school program. After the singing, everyone went into the fellowship hall to view the crafts that the kids had made during the school year. Here she is with Phil. We hugged and praised her. No, we did not say a word about her little "performance" on stage just minutes before. Any discipline for that episode was all up to her parents. Grandparents are lucky that way. Pictures show just a few of their creations. I love the paper bag fishes, and showed hers specifically because she made the only one with long eyelashes. God created us to be in His image, but how could that be when we certainly don't look like him, being flesh and blood? Because God gave us some of his attributes, including the ability to create. And boy, do we create! When man built the tower of Babel, here's what God said about our creating :"If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them." Just think about that. Nothing will be impossible! But the problem with the tower was that men got so carried away with these creative abilities that they thought they could replace God. So he actually had to inhibit our abilities in some way. Kind of like little Anne on stage, sometimes being TOO creative isn't such a good thing.

So cute that your grand daughter made the only fish with long eyelashes - she is a 'fashionista' already - little diva :-) Those fish look so great all together, too! I've not seen those before and I taught preschool!

Hi Ginny, Love the little 'crafts' that the children made at their school. What a neat little pre-school. I too love the little fishies...

All we've seen on the beach here is beautiful sand and lots of SHELLS. No Glass --that you asked about.

We've had a wonderful day today at the beach... Beautiful weather after the rain yesterday (clear, sunny, breezy, warm---PERFECT)...

Hugs,
Betsy

I suppose your right (thinking of Anne on stage),ha. Well it almost reminds me of the scripture (all creation growns..so true) I'm sorry I'm too tired to look it up..anyway, its a high tech world and yet, we are reduced so! We are also fractured, disjointed and can be a very isolated people (I know not always). It is a confounding..on the surface one might argue, but man sets himself up against God without any trouble at all.. but we know God works everything out for good. We have to thank him for the limitation (I'm reminded of this)..just some late night thoughts/feedback?

Inhibiting our abilities is a lot like pain. The poppy post- I mean whether its the actual pain or the pain due to- or frustration from drug companies and that..making everything so difficult? Thank God he uses it..even that! This knowledge means we can trust him and not despair! Thanks for your response too-
