Matt is the director of teaching for our church's Awana program. This means that he is responsible for the 25-minute teaching times for K-2nd, and 3rd-4th grades during Awana each week. Each month he is focusing on the fruit of the Spirit. October's study is on self-control. In planning for tonight's teaching time, he remembered a song from our childhood and sent me to the store to see if I could find it. To my surprise, our local Christian books store carried it.
With great delight I purchased and brought home "Bullfrogs and Butterflies" and "The Music Machine." For those of you who grew up in Christian homes in the late 70's and early 80's, these names should ring a bell for you! On the way home from the store I rocked out to some favorite old songs like, Have Patience, The String Song, This Is The Day, Practice Makes Perfect, and I Like Knowing God the Best.
The self-control song is going to be a great puppet show tonight! And then I can't wait to introduce Snapper and Pepper to these classics!!!
