Facts and Snacks ;)

Brendan and Ryan both did a great job on their reports this afternoon – I am very proud of them!  We heard presentations on snakes, history, hurricanes, radio, manatees, and several book reports.  It is neat how much variety each student brings to the group and how many new things we learn!  One of the moms said that we shoud rename our group “Fants and Snacks” since we always end up with so much food – cute!!!

I read a cool reminder to the kids this morning and thought somebody else might enjoy sharing it with their family:

WHY JESUS IS BETTER THAN SANTA CLAUS:

By Rev. James Speilman

Santa lives at the North Pole…JESUS is everywhere.

Santa rides in a sleigh…JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the water.

Santa comes but once a year…JESUS is an ever present help.

Santa fills your stockings with goodies…JESUS supplies all your needs.

You have to wait in line to see Santa…JESUS is as close as the mention of His name.

Santa lets you sit on his lap…JESUS lets you rest in His arms.

Santa doesn’t know your name, all he can say is “Hi little boy or girl, what’s your name?”…JESUS knew our name before we did.  Not only does He know our name, He knows our address too.  He knows our history and future and He even knows how many hairs are on our head.

Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly…JESUS has a heart full of love.

All Santa can offer is HO HO HO…JESUS offers health, help, and hope.

Santa says, “You better not cry”…JESUS says, “Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.”

Santa’s little helpers make toys…JESUS makes new life, mends wounded hearts, repairs broken homes, and build mansions.

Santa may make you chuckle but…JESUS gives you a joy that is your strength.

While Santa puts gifts under your tree…JESUS became our gift and died on the tree.

It’s obvious tere is really no comparison!  JESUS is still the reason for the season.  Yes, JESUS is better, he is even better than Santa Claus!
