Made With Love




I had a great day in school with some Year 4 children today. this afternoon we made cards for Mothering Sunday.They decorated hearts, then stuck them onto the front of cards to make pockets. In the pockets they put little concertina fans - which opened up to reveal coupons saying things like "This coupon is good for a hug and a kiss" and "This coupon is good for tidying my room" and "This coupon is good for walking the dog" The children were very inventive as they filled in their coupons.

The Williamsons, our missionary family in Peru, have posted on their blog about the card which our Y4God [Sunday school] children made for Jessica's birthday

Cardmaking is so satisfying!


I ended up being in charge of Whole School Singing Practice this morning [which will amuse all those who have heard my tuneless little voice] so at Registration, I asked the class for their favourites. Two songs were requested with enthusiasm- and sung equally well when we got into the Hall.

I couldn't fault their choices- they were songs I am very fond of too..

Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist
Without the knowledge of Your parenthood and Your loving care
But now I am Your child
, I am adopted in Your family
And I can never be alone
'Cause Father God, You're there beside me
I will sing Your praises
I will sing Your praises
I will sing Your praises
Forever more

And with all the actions, and great gusto they sang

Our God is a great big God,
Our God is a great big God,
Our God is a great big God,
And He holds us in his hands.
He's higher than a sky scraper
and he's deeper than a submarine.
He's wider than the universe
and beyond my wildest dreams.
And He's known me and He's loved me
since before the world began.
How wonderful to be a part of God's amazing plan.
Our God is a great big God                                             
And He holds us in his hands.


  1. I love the 'Father God I wonder...' song too.

  2. Lots of creativity happening there! I didn't realize that other parts of the world might have Mother's Day on different days than we do in Canada or America. Ours is always the second Sunday in May. Such beautiful primulas! Great idea!
