What Sweet Cheeks Learned At Children's Church



Our grandkids belong to a 
different religous denomination than we do.
Their parents are doing a wonderful
job raising them up in their faith.
However,
once in a while when the kids
spend Saturday night with us,
 they go to our Community Church.
We have a Children's Church there
that does games, simple teachings and
simple crafts.
(God bless those room "mothers")

So-Last Sunday off SweetCheeks goes to
the Kindergarten age class.
We picked her up afterwards
and she was smiling. 
What did you learn today, SweetCheeks?
I learned Ephesians 4:32
Be kind to one another and forgive
others as God forgave you.

WE were duly impressed so we pressed on....
And THEN what? We asked.

SweetCheeks never missed a beat-
Then it was all
Blah-Blah-Blah-Blah-Blah-Blah-Blah!

Ummmmm....Didn't you listen?
Noh- I wuz buzhy!
Buzy doing what?
Making butterflies for the other LITTLE kids.
They thought I was the teacher's helper!

(The LITTLE kids are her age)-lol
That's my girl!

I love starting my day with a SweetCheeks story!!! Welcome back!

Susie said...

Diana, I have missed hearing about SC's antics. So cute. At least she learned something.:):) Reminds of a time when I read sleeping beauty to a child . I read it all and I said "the end". She says," is that really how it goes?" I said yes, why do you ask? She says," What happened to all the blah-blah-blahs?" Her father was saying that to reach the end quicker.:) xoxo,Susie

What a sweet heart your Sweet Cheeks has! My son is the same. Kids flock to him, and it does my heart good to see him take time with little guys, be they his age or younger ;)

Patty Patterson said...

She looks like a pretty good helper, to me! :-)

Stephanie said...

What a cutie! And I love that she said the "little" kids thought she was the Teacher's Helper :) Hope you are doing well.

Hugs to you!

Nonnie said...

Haha! She sounds very much like a little girl I have in our children's church. A little helper. Smart, too - memorizing that verse.
It's great to see you back. I trust your son is doing well since his surgery.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

What a joy that little one of yours is!!

Hey Nana you have to have a helper didnt you know. Be kind to each other. She was a Helper.

Only Sweet Cheeks would give you an honest answer.

Out of Babes mouths.

I think that she may be Presidential material with all of that leadership capability.

Kelly said...

As I've said before.....she's a little spitfire! That's good though. She'll end up paving her own road one day as a result. She'll be a leader instead of a follower. She is so adorable.

Mindy said...

Ha! That's too cute.

Musings from Kim K. said...

That would be the same thing Josie would do! Our two really need to get together.

Japolina said...

Hi Diana, It is so good to read your blog again. Sweet Cheeks is so adorable and I love her answers. You can be assured that you are going to chuckle at how she answers you. We are getting more rain today and possible severe weather later today. I don't know how much we have had now. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

If everyone was made to learn and follow what she was taught, what a great world it would be.
Thanks for sharing, she is a cutie pie. Kathy

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

Sweet Cheeks has the best sense of humor! I have missed that girl! She and her sister shave the best "lines"! I love her confidence that she was the helper! Welcome back! Have a great weekend! Missed you!

Tina C said...

We sure have missed that sweet little stinker! I can just imagine her in charge of the 'little ones'. She has minions now!
xo, T.

Ellie VanCaster said...

Oh my gosh, she is one of a kind-you just want to pick her up and squeeze her. I think what ever she wants in life she will get it (one way or another-LOL) What a perfect face for her personality ;-)
I'm so happy you could get back to blogging.

Debbie said...

I'm so glad you are back, Diana.
I missed reading your posts.

Thanks for stopping by to see my little room take shape AND thanks for commenting! Lately, I think ladies are browsing, but not commenting...I get lonely! Cindy

Sweet Tea said...

Gotta love a girl with "attitude" - it will take her far!!

Little Miss Maggie said...

Lovely butterfly. I'm sure Sweet Cheeks is mature for her age so she thought of the other kids as younger. She's adorable.

SavannahGranny said...

That's our Sweet Cheeks! If only she knew the blah, blah, blah stuff she could have been teaching the class.
Gotta love our Sweet Cheeks.

Oh, is that little girl adorable!!! And, guess what? Ephesians 4:32 is one of two verses in my upcoming Sunday post :)

Sue said...

she's a very good artist for her age....Miss B still scribbles or copies my art....stick figures...

Cristina Garay said...

:) I love her! Of course she is older than all those little kids!

Is there anything better than children? That is some definite artistic potential there. That is a great lesson of kindness and forgiveness. In our church, the reverends speak with the children’s class every week to teach them lessons in front of the congregation. There are always special and funny moments with the children.
