And finally, one from August 2006:
This morning we were coloring, and I noticed that many of the crayons were broken and paper peeled off, so I was trying to think what cool thing we could do with them. I had Noah shave them with the vegetable peeler, then we put the peelings between two sheets of waxed paper. I covered the whole thing with a towel and ironed it. I had this whole lesson going about how Jesus can take broken things and make them beautiful, and how the crayon shavings were like us, and Jesus was the iron melting us all together into one body of Christ. Noah was paying attention really well and everything was fabulous. It started to melt and make a lovely picture. I held it up to the light and talked about how much better it was when the light shone thru and how Jesus shines thru us and makes us lovely. Then apparently I ironed too much, b/c I burned the thing and it was not pretty. Noah of course, followed the object lesson through, and said "If we have too much of Jesus, will He burn us?"
