School starts Monday round these parts. The junior girls of PCA had a sleepover last night, and I was invited. I have known some of these girls since they were in elementary school and it is a treat to see the young women they are turning into. And it doesn't make me feel old at all. Not at all.
We had devotions on things out there in the world that can trip us up, and ways we can guard against that. Then, we got out the bead soup and made bracelets. It is my hope that their bracelets will be a tangible reminder of the things we talked about.
As with all groups doing bead soup, selecting beads is the most fun part of the project.
Stringing and crimping.
The final jewelry. Notice the bracelets all include heart charms?
Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
Guard your heart against the evils in the wolrd that take us down the wrong path. Do that by:
- Removing yourself from known temptations when possible
- Learn and keep God's word in your heart
- Don't do it alone, get someone to stand by your side and help you be accountable
- Keep a constant connection to God
Thanks girls, it was a delight to spend time with you. Thank you for sharing your Vitamin C with me!
