Happy Three Kings Day! The children found their gifts under the tree this morning, each with a scripture and note.
For GOLD they received Rolos and tokens for our new video game timer. Their note reminded them that gold is a gift meant for royalty and that they are children of a King. They were instructed to use their time wisely as it is it more precious than gold.
For FRANKINCENSE each of their notes reminded them that Christ came as a prophet, priest, and savior and that they should look to Him. Elizabeth received a butterfly finger puppet with a reminder that we all require change. Matthew, a snake finger puppet, with a reference to Moses' brazen serpent representing Christ. The older two boys were given book lights with cards naming Christ as the Light of the World.
For MYRRH they each were given a personalized t-shirt with designs created with bleach. The note read, "Even more effectively than bleach removes dye, Christ's atonement can remove our sins."
