galatians 5:22-23

My friend Lisa and I just started a Beth Moore Bible study on the fruit of the Spirit. In the introductory DVD we were shown how to sign Galatians 5:22-23. We were also encouraged to learn it. So I brought the DVD to Denver, hoping I’d find a couple of openings in my busy days of hanging out with my grandchicks while their parents went to a business conference in Chicago.

The kids and I discovered how fun it was to each name an activity we’d enjoy doing together for a half hour each and then voting on which one we did first. In our second round of this “circle” we called it I chose learning to sign the fruit of the Spirit. Now this will illustrate how sweet my grands are: two of them voted to do that first. Yes, you can think of it the other way, that they wanted to get it over with. But I promise you, once we got started—they were INTO it. With about 15 minutes of rewinding (or whatever you do with a DVD), we could do this: (5-year-old Cassidy is the videographer)

Did you see me peeking down at them for clues? Kids are way too smart these days.

That accomplished, we moved on to basement soccer, ePets, and making a craft. It’s amazing what you can create in half an hour.

And before I took Cass to school this afternoon, we ate a lovely butterfly and ice cream cone and hearts and fish that tasted a lot like PB&J sandwiches.

The mama comes home tomorrow, so we have to fit in as much “grand” fun as we can before I go home.

    Hi Sherry–

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Our ladies Bible studies at church took her course two years ago. I’ve been wanting to see the sign language for the gifts of the Spirit again and I couldn’t remember them. I’ve been trying to learn some sign language and I practice with the songs from church–slow ones are better than fast ones for sure. However, despite my trying to minimize my hand motions, Bart finds them distracting to him and says he often has to close his eyes to concentrate. Others who have noticed have enjoyed the signs. It’s a good thing we sit near the back pretty often 🙂

    Just Leane
