Day 2: I knew today was going to be a busy day…I was right! We had planned to go to the living Nativity near our house and we were so blessed to have not only my nephew join us, but my parents AND my sister! My parents took us a couple times when we were little (10 and 7) and I still remember it, so I had high hopes these kiddos would love it too. And they did!! We decided to grab an early dinner together…perfect for today’s act of kindness!
We got our Random Acts cards ready with quarters and candy canes so we could tape them to the candy machines. Daveid Michael (my nephew) really wanted to give one to someone…his mom. He wanted to bless her and I thought that was super sweet of him. Then, off to church. It was an awesome living Nativity, that was cold but soo much fun! They do a great job and it was well worth getting chilled for!
Today’s verse was Genesis 3:6-8. The theme was learning why Jesus came, that we needed a Savior because our sin separated us from God. We also read Isaiah 9:6. We learned that one of God’s name is Wonderful Counselor.
From our calendar (I will post them again after Christmas): Sunday, December 2 – Verse: Genesis 3:6-8 (Why Jesus came); Isaiah 9:6 (Wonderful counselor). Tape quarters to candy machines.
Day 3: Catching up from the whirlwind of the last couple of days. Today was the planning meeting for the Spokane Orphan Summit and once I got home, it was a bit of a rough day for me! So, we redeemed the day by spending some quality time together. One of the reasons that I didn’t list our events before we do them, is that they are constantly changing. So far, we have changed them around every day. We had a little shopping today and decided today would be a great day to be “coupon fairies.” We put out tons and tons of coupons that will *hopefully* bless future shoppers. And we got some great deals so I was able to bless Fiona too. And we got some great deals for upcoming Random Acts so that’s awesome too.
Today’s verse was Isaiah 60:1-3. The theme was learning about how our world needs God. We also read Isaiah 9:6. We learned that one of God’s name is Mighty God.
From our calendar (I will post them again after Christmas): Monday, December 3 – Verse: Isaiah 60:1-3 (World needed God); Isaiah 9:6 (The Mighty God). Be a coupon fairy! Take all of our extra unneeded coupons and put them with the right item for a customer!
