Vacation Bible School, 1972

September 7, 2006

My mom brought me this relic from my past tonight — a popsicle stick craft to help me remember my memory verses from Vacation Bible School the summer before I turned 6 years old.

Resisting the temptation to go into an old folks story about how deprived kids were when I was young because the only craft materials we had were popsicle sticks — certainly not fun foam and googly eyes and all the cool stuff available today — I would like to list these verses that I learned about oh so many years ago.

God is Love (1 John 4:11) — Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.

God is Failthful (Deuteronomy 31:6) — Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid of them! The LORD your God will go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you.”

God is Holy (Leviticus 26:12) — I will walk among you; I will be your God, and you will be my people.

God is Good (Genesis 32:12) — But you promised to treat me kindly and to multiply my descendants until they become as numerous as the sands along the seashore–too many to count.”

Good is Great (Psalm 104:1) — Praise the LORD, I tell myself; O LORD my God, how great you are! You are robed with honor and with majesty;

God is Kind (Ephesians 4:32) — Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

God is True (Psalm 18:1) — I love you, LORD; you are my strength.

God is in Heaven (Psalm 9:11) — Sing praises to the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done.
