"It was fitting to celebrate and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and is alive, he was lost, and is found!" Luke 15:32
Our Bible story today was The Prodigal Son! It is one of my favorites!! :) We talked about how God welcomes us back to Himself~ when we are sorry for our sin and when our hearts have eyes to see that it is better to be with Him, rather than on our own!! We need Him and He is amazingly compassionate and loving, happy to have us at His side once again! I am extremely thankful that He does not send us away, but embraces us, and treats us as His children!! So at VBS, we had a party,like they did in the story- what else?!
There were party hats!! :)
There were cupcakes!! :)
There were party games!! :)
There were even fireworks (sparklers, really)!! :)
And there was music!! :)
