Vacation Bible School Smiles

Vacation Bible School performance. I'm smiling just looking at you smiling.


And here.

And here.

And still smiling here.

Somewhere around the last verse of Awesome God you realized you were supposed to be doing the hand motions, and you quickly tried to make up for lost time.

Daddy and I didn't care that you missed the motions during the first five verses or so.

We love that you're different, wonderfully created, preciously unique.

And we, like you, never stopped smiling as we watched you.

I wonder, Does the rest of the world see how you shine? Do they see that light in you as we do?

And I loved your quote at dinner: "Daddy, flap your wings! We're going to --- UGANDA!" (Thank you, VBS!)

Never stop smiling, sweets. Never stop shining for us. We love you!


  1. So sweet! Where is he going to VBS? I've been taking Karissa to The Summit Church here in Rogersville. They are doing it every Weds pm in July instead of the usual weeklong session. She loves it! Their theme is Space Odyssey. I hate it that Second quit doing VBS but I'm sure she'll love the SAF once she's old enough to participate.

  2. Oh, fine. Just make me weep, why don't you?

  3. I am directing our church's VBS this year. I never went as a child and this will be my first. Wish I had pictures like that as a child! Maybe in two weeks I will though! ;)
