What is life all about?

Felicia's written reflection:
What is life all about?
The sun comes up, the sun goes down.
The tide comes in, the tide goes down.
You wake up, you go to sleep.
Is life just a routine?
Our purpose in life is not to see who becomes the richest.
It is not to see who is the most beautiful.
But it is to serve the Lord and learn to love Him.
So don't waste your time trying to become rich or beautiful,
spend it on learning to love the Lord and serve him.

The Kingdom Changes Us

During a presentation of the leaven with a 6-9 group I asked, "Do you think the kingdom changes anything in the world?
Fiona, 6, answered, "It changes us."
"It makes us grow - like the seed."
