Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things.” – Colossians 3:2
Definition of Flexible:
Capable of bending easily without breaking:
Able to be easily modified to respond to altered circumstances or conditions.
Reason Chosen: I am the first one to admit that I need this word more than anyone else in my family. If I have a plan in my head of how the day is going to go and that plan changes, I have a real hard time adapting. I feel like I’m spontaneous, but when I have a positive agenda, and it doesn’t go the way I wanted, I have a totally discontented spirit. It’s a bad trait that I’m needing to work on. I want to focus on it so that my kids don’t adapt the same flaw. They definitely show signs of having their own agenda and wanting things to go exactly the way they want. I hear myself often saying, “We’re just going to learn to be laid back about that.” I want a more contented spirit all around, and I believe part of that is having a more flexible nature.
Word Ring At the beginning of each week, the craft will be exactly the same because we will simply be adding a new word to our already established word ring. Materials Needed
* Stock Card Paper (I had a whole stack like this – found at any craft store) * Assorted Sticker Letters (I just bought a bunch on clearance at Michael’s) * Binder Clips (Craft Store) * Paper Cutter or Scissors * Hole Punch The girls chose a paper style they thought would look good with the letters they chose. We then helped them sound out “flexibility.” They took turns finding the letters we needed and sticking them on the paper…they’re kids – the letters will not be stuck on perfect. I then cut the paper to the same size as the paper from last week. We punched a hole in the corner and stuck it on our binding clip. Each week, a new word will be added to the clip in similar fashion. I then wrote the Bible verse on the back. If your kids are older, have them do it themselves. We’ll spend this week learning the word, meaning and memorizing the scripture.
