MATTHEW 21:1-16 People praise Jesus by shouting,
waving palm branches,
and spreading their coats
on the ground.
Who is your friend? Jesus is my friend.
As you drive, listen to your favorite children's worship music. Sing along to the songs with your preschooler. After several songs, ask your preschooler: Who you are singing about? Who are you praising? Who wants to be your friend forever?
"A friend loves at all times."
Proverbs 17:17, NIrV
BASIC TRUTH: JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER
From Parent Cue:
HOPE ON A NAPKIN
By Sherry Surratt
Her voice was a whisper, "What are you doing?" I whispered back, "Not much, what are you doing?" In a guilty voice, she explained she was calling from the garage because she was hiding from her five-year-old twin boys, who had just removed the bedroom door from its hinges while having a ‘quiet time.’ They had actually removed the screws using parts of their Junior Explorer Tool Set. "I think my kids might be wild Indians, and I decided to eat Oreos in the garage. It’s me that needs the quiet time." I reassured her that I had had similar thoughts before.
Parenting is like this sometimes. It’s a conundrum of the happiest moments of your life mixed with ones that would have you losing your mind. If you’ve ever wanted to hide in your car, in the pantry, or even in your bathroom, you’re definitely not alone. And if you’ve ever felt like a failure as a parent, we’ve all been there.
