The Eight Pals by Levi

The eight parts of speech were waling along when they saw a man taking some money from an old lady.

"Look," said verb.
"Where," asked adverb.
"Over," said preposition.
"...there," finished pronoun.
"Oh, no," exclaimed interjection.
"Vile, " said adjective.
"But," said conjunction.
"...handsome," said adjective.
"Man," said noun.
"Nice," said adjective.
"Huh," asked interjection.
"Man," repeated noun.
"Nice," repeated adjective.
"Oh," said interjection.

Then they all realized the old lady was giving the man the money.

Christmas Joy

These cousins love to be together. This Christmas, they have giggled, shopped, performed, tried each other's clothes on, sang, and here they are dancing together.

The Joy of Giving 2010

I had the chance to pick presents for 30+ kids. A member of our church shops for deals all year and donates items for prizes and presents. So this year at our Christmas dinner, we were able to give each kid a present. Since I am the children's pastor, I was in charge of deciding who got what. It was neat to realize that since I have a relationship with each kid, I knew what they would like. Each conversation we have had, made it easier and a joy to pick out their present. The joy came from knowing each child. The joy came from the relationship.

I am thanking God for the joy of giving, the joy of relationships this Christmas!
