Celebrate Children's Day

Next Sunday – June 14th, is Children’s Day . . . yes, it is a real holiday! (If you look it up on Google, it says the USA celebrates Children’s Day on the second Sunday in June – this has been the official date since the 1800’s – I really did not make this holiday up!!!) 
My grandsons look forward to celebrating Children’s Day. The boys will choose our menu - it will not surprise me if we have root beer floats! Since it will be warm out, we will also have a full-scale water war with squirt guns and the water hose, plus we are trying out a slip and slide, so getting wet will be part of our celebration for sure. 
And, along with the fun (and we will have lots of fun), I plan to use this day to be intentional about reminding my grandsons how much I love them, how very thankful I am God blessed our family with each of them, and how much He loves them! 

Share this holiday with the families in your church - encourage them to celebrate the children they - and you - love. (Consider encouraging them to give their children/grandchildren a gift to help them learn something essential - the book Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children - as learning to talk with God is one of the most important things they need to learn - you will find it at this link.)
I love Children’s Day – one of my favorite days of the year . . . for very good reason!
