“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” Isaiah 40:8
Today was Grandparents Day. We had a great time welcoming our grandparents into the building, singing special songs with them, doing fun classrooms activities together, along with making flower pots and planting flowers in them together! It was a wonderful day filled with fun and activity! Our theme this year is Growing in Christ’s love and knowledge. We can learn so much from our grandparent’s knowledge on life and from their love for the Lord. We themed our Grandparents day around growing as well. That is why we planted the flowers and decorated in a garden theme. As I was preparing for Grandparents day, I was bringing stuff in from my car and notice this little flower growing up from between the cement over by the dumpster. I was taken back for a second on how this cute little plant could grow in such a desolate place. It is not planted in soft dirt where it can easily get nutrients. This plant has to work hard for survival. Yet it is beautiful. It is very healthy even though it is growing in such an unusual spot. It also seems determined. When I was looking at the flower I felt like it was making a statement about survival. When our roots sink deep into the good soil we will survive, we will thrive and become beautiful flowers. This little plant is a survivor, yet it will eventually wither and die. We however, will never die as we sink our roots deep into the wonderful heritage of our grandparents and into the everlasting word and saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are so thankful for the chance to be a small part of helping your kids sink their roots deep into family and Faith.
