May 2018 - Week 3 Preschool Parent Cue

      MAY

        2018

WEEK 3:

GENESIS 41
Joseph tells Pharaoh (the king) what his dream means. Pharaoh puts Joseph in charge of helping save the food.

SAY THIS:

Who has a plan for you?
God has a plan for me.


 
DO THIS:

CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You that Your plan was for me to be [child's name]'s [mom/dad]. I love [him/her] so much! Help us to trust Your plan even when it's hard. We know Your plan is always best. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

REMEMBER THIS:
"The plans of the Lord stand firm forever."
Psalm 33:11, NIV
BASIC TRUTH: God made me.
From Parent Cue:

ONE MARBLE AT A TIME
By Autumn Ward


I’ve been told there are 936 weeks in the life of a child from birth to 18. At Parent Cue, we use a visual of a jar filled with 936 marbles. The idea is that when you count the weeks you have left with a kid, you stand a better chance of making your weeks count. As you take one marble out of the jar each week, the marbles begin going down, you see what you have left . . .  you get the idea.

I have 3 kids and the jar of my first-born has 4 marbles in it.

One. Two. Three. Four.
Four marbles.
A cap and gown.
A prom tux.
Graduation announcements . . .

All reminders that there’s not much time left before the infant that entered my home 18 years ago will soon be leaving as a man.

Looking back, I can’t even begin to tell you where all of my 936 marbles went.
When I look back, it’s not the “big” moments that I remember most. It’s the smaller everyday moments that stand out . . .
