Think of your favorite song. Can you remember all of the words? Of course, you can! You can probably remember the words to lots of songs. Sometimes we know words to songs that we wish we didn’t! We fill our heads with all sorts of things.
Sometimes you memorize poems for school. Other times you learn math formulas or remember lines for a play. But have you ever tried to remember a verse from the Bible? We can fill our heads with good things, like the words of our Lord, Jesus Christ. When we do that, God can give us help when we need it. Let’s start today!
Try to remember this great line. Fill your head with it! This verse tells us how much God loves us. Wouldn’t you like to fill your head with that thought?
THE ELEVATION: OF THE PRECIOUS AND LIFEGIVING CROSS
Do you have something that is precious to you? Maybe a pet animal or a favorite toy or a present from
your grandmother? Maybe your parents have told you how precious you are to them. Something precious to you is something that means so much to you, something you wouldn’t trade for anything! A precious jewel is a diamond or another gem that is worth a lot of money, but something precious to you might not be worth anything to somebody else.
We celebrate the Holy Cross on Tues, Sept. 14th (OC: Sept. 27th).
