A shining LIGHT!


What an incredibly blessed week this has been. From start to finish - there have blessings surrounding our VBS. From the most wonderful volunteers who have so unselfishly given of their time and talent - to those who generously gave us beautiful decorations, to the wonderful turnout of children and adult participants.

This week was not without incident though - on Wednesday night, the church bus full of children coming to VBS was hit by another car. Thankfully, no one was injured in either vehicle and seeing the other car, that is amazing. God was definitely watching over everyone involved in that accident.

No matter how tired we all get, VBS is a week that revives your SPIRIT!!!! I am just so totally grateful for the people that were sent our way to make this a Vacation Bible School to remember. To all my helpers, thank you is simply not enough. I know that each of you are a shining light to all those children who came this week. So thank you, thank you so much.

Let your light shine!
Everybody have a beautiful weekend!

I am so glad the accident turned out okay. The hand of God was there for sure. It sounds like you had a wonderful week of VBS, and maybe you will have time now to take just a wee bit of breath, but I'm sure you will be off to the next thing to do. Have a wonderful evening. Jean in Virginia

I am so thankful that no one was hurt - how frightening it must have been anyway. I always loved VBS week when my kids were young!

I love the photo on the post. Simply perfect!
