SUMMER BIBLE VERSES 

Genesis 8:22  While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Psalm 37:5-6  Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday.

Psalm 148:3-5  Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, shining stars. Praise Him, highest heavens… Let them praise the name of the LORD for He commanded and they were created.

Isaiah 45:12  I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

Jeremiah 5:22  Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?

Malachi 4:2  But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings.

Also available in French. In each post, you will also find links to related FREE colouring pages, puzzles, crafts and creative ideas for kids to round out your summer packages.

Butterfly:  show your child these incredible photos of butterflies under the microscope (scroll down) and magnified up to 5000 times! Make your own Bible poster or postcard starring your own photos of butterflies found in your garden; or download these butterfly freebies.

Butterfly Door Hanger A4 Butterfly Bookmark Skinnies 4x6 Caterpillar folds out into Butterfly Craft A4

Treasures in the Sand  (insteading) photos of sand under the microscope and magnified up to 250 times revealing stunning tiny treasures. Each grain is unique and incredibly beautiful. Share them with your child and make sure you give the credit to God as designer!

The Giant Conch – ‘super shell’  (creation.com) information for kids from scientists who take the Bible seriously; the giant conch shell is ‘one of nature’s greatest engineering masterpieces’. So what makes it so special?

Amazing Abalone Armour  (creation.com) famous both for their brilliant colours of its inner shell. The Maori people of New Zealand call it paua, and make beautiful jewellery from the shells. But scientists are interested in its great strength, and hope to learn how to make body armour using its techniques. Technology copying God’s designs is called biomimetics; information for kids from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Queen Conch – seashell  (answersingenesis) The queen conch, one of the largest marine snails, is best known for its bright pink, orange, or yellow coloring on the inside of the flared lip of its shell… builds its own shell out of calcium carbonate that it gets from the ocean. How does a conch know that it needs to build a shell, and how does it know how to build its shell? This information was given to the conch-KIND at creation. Information has to come from a source of intelligence, and that source is the all-knowing Creator God; information for kids from scientists who take the Bible seriously.

Seashells by the Seashore  (answersingenesis) People have been amazed by colorful, shimmery seashells for a long time… These swirly, sparkly, bumpy, ocean-sounding collectables are some of the neatest houses growing on the planet. Wait! Houses that grow? You bet. Shells you find on the seashore come from creatures called mollusks. God designed them to grow their own houses to keep safe! And their houses get bigger as they get bigger; information on various shells and also a family devotion by scientists who take the Bible seriously.
