BIBLE VERSES

Genesis 1:20-23  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Job 12:7-10  But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell you; or speak to the earth, and it shall teach you; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto you. Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

Psalm 33:8  Let all the Earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

SCARLET (OR CRIMSON) WORM… PLUS FREE POSTER

Have you heard the story about the amazing scarlet (or crimson) worm? The female adheres herself permanently to a tree, lays her eggs protectively under her body; covers herself and her eggs with a scarlet dye; and literally gives her life to feed her young. A crimson spot is left on the branch that dries out in 3 days, then changes to white as it flakes off. This tiny insect is an amazing picture of our Lord Jesus Christ and His incredible love for us.

Free printable Bible Poster; Revelation 1:5; Jesus loved us and gave His life for us; Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood

    • (putting on my teacher hat…haha!) Learning IS so much fun, isn’t it? I love learning about God and all the wonderful things He has made for us, so much. Plus they can also be used as extra hints of ideas to send. Maybe a snippet for the younger children. Maybe print off the whole (or adapted) article for the older kids. Thanks for dropping by, Susan! :)
