"My frame was not hidden from you    when I was made in the secret place,    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body;    all the days ordained for me were written in your book    before one of them came to be." 

-Psalm 139: 15-16

 

Have you ever thought that God's book of life, referenced here in Psalm 139 might be written in sidewalk chalk?

I must admit that I'm a fan of sidewalk chalk and the glee with which children express themselves wherever and whenever the chalk is in hand. This week was the final week of our preschool year and graffiti such as this ordains our JCPC campus.

 

Twenty years from now our preschoolers will be expressing themselves in much more mature and surprising ways; through professions, volunteer activities, and potentially creating families of their own.

 

The Psalmist's faith holds all of our activities close to God; "all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

 

The following tapestry hangs on the wall that connects the Welcome Center to the Great Hall.

 

All of these little hands were nurtured and blessed in our JCPC preschool. They have all grown up and launched into adulthood. This tapestry serves as a reminder of the faithful parenting, teaching, and loving kindness that believed in them long before they learned to believe.

 

I have a request for you. The next time that you see Pris Horne, Lisa Lucas, or one of our preschool teachers, current or alumni, please thank them for their loving faithfulness. You could also send them an email to express your appreciation; preschool@jcpcusa.org.

 

Their names were written in God's book of life and behold what sharing their giftedness has brought forth as ordained by God!

 

Prayer for Today

Thank you Lord for the children who are raised here in our family of faith. Thank you for the leaders that assure that they are loved, cherished, and blessed. Amen.
