In our church the 3-7 year old children have a children’s message that is given during the service in the front of the sanctuary.  Yesterday Zion and Jacoba went up to listen to the message.

The message was well done.  It was about sleep and resting.  The speaker, Kim, brought a number of examples of activities that some of us do.  The children were asked to participate by indicating whether or not they did the activity.  Then Kim brought out a pillow.  She told the children that sleeping or resting is something that we ALL do.

Just before the message was over, Jacoba decided to give her imput.

Jacoba told Kim that not everything sleeps because “tongues don’t sleep”.

Kim did a good job redirecting and Jacoba felt affirmed that she spread her brilliance.

I wish you a good rest tonight.  Except your tongue.
