Scavenger Hunt Sunday

The scavenger hunt items for this week were
  • Relaxing
  • Inspiring person
  • Written words
  • Memories
  • Best friend


 How about a beautiful, relaxing sunset?

Grace (7) is relaxing while watching a video with her "new" horse, with our puppy Bono feeling a little left out and wondering, "Who's this guy?"  (Correction:  Grace says it should read "Who's this girl?" because the horse's name is Lady Rose.)

Inspiring person

Well, for me, that would be Jesus Christ.  He is "God come looking for us" and is our example.

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:  
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross!  Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  (Philippians 2:5-11 NIV, emphasis added)

Written words

How about the written word of God?  

This is an idea I've used in our church nursery/preschool ministry...Bible verses on wristbands.  More often than not, the verse at least makes it out the door with the child.  :)

The photo features one of my favorite verses:

My help comes from the Lord, maker of heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:2)

Make sure the verse is printed off-center to allow an overlap of the ends, and secure with dot stickers.  


Memories come from the everyday things, like exploring at the edge of a parking lot...



as well as the special things, like camp.  (Click on the link to see photos from Josiah's camp experience last year.)

Best friend

Josiah's best friend came to camp with him this year.  These two will talk and talk and talk and talk...

Here's a better photo of the two of them that I took in April 2013:

Great set. I liked your Inspiring Person shot and the thoughts behind it.
Clever idea with the Bible verses as a wrist band.
Your memories shot and best friend shots are very sweet.
