As a child on Sunday mornings my father would pray a LOOOOOONNNNGGG prayer to cover us for the week! I think I have mentioned this tradition on my blog before-during his prayer when he prayed for my sister and I he would say “Train them up in the way they should go-and when they are old they wont depart from it”…I didnt know until I was older that he was actually quoting the scripture Proverbs 22:6. Well this weekend I felt that I was training MY child up…(and I actually felt VERY good about it)!
A while back Darrick and I had a long talk about goals we wanted to accomplish (personal, family, professional), and so on! When Darrick and I first got together we were regulars in our Sunday School classes, then after some time we fell off! So he said one of his goals was to get back into Sunday School, and I said sure…well since we live close to the church, you go and I will get Emma and myself ready and you can come back and get us…we live literally 5 mins from church!
Saturday night I was determined since I was getting back in the choir and ushering all in one Sunday that we were going to be on time! I picked out Emma’s clothes (she’s the hard one) she had an Outfit 1 and Outfit 2 just in case we had a mishap in the morning! I picked her shoes out, socks, hair bows, I even had a diaper sitting out ready for her! I got my clothes together, and Darrick got his clothes together!
Sunday morning we were up early, it was action time. I didnt tell Darrick until it was time to get ready that we were all going to go together. If we are a family and one person has a goal its all of together…so I rushed and got ready. I didnt discuss if I was going to go to my class or if I was taking Emma to her class.
When we got to church, I sat in the car and finished my makeup. Then once we walked in I took Emma to her class! Of course I stayed with her…even though I knew the teachers would take perfect care of her! LOL! She was the only student at first, then 3 other little girls came in…they were older than Emma! She was the only baby!
Emma and her Sunday School teacher, Susan! She sat really quite while Susan taught her he Sunday School lesson. Then she came back and sat with me once she learned her part of the lesson! HA!
After Sunday School Class, we have a part of Sunday School called Review. Review is when a class goes over the Sunday School lesson, and tells what they learned.
Below are pictures of Emma up front with her classmates reviewing the lesson! Emma’s older cousin Amber took these pictures with her phone. I was so excited about Emma going to Sunday School class I texted Darrick to let him know that her class would be reviewing the lesson and when we were walking out he was standing outside of the door! He saw it all…#proudmommyanddaddymoment
I was so happy about this because we both grew up in church. I will admit I was never a real big fan of Sunday School due to the different experiences I had with my teachers (I didnt really like Sunday School until I got older), however, even though my parents made my sister and I go it was very beneficial in learning about the Bible. Darrick also grew up going to Sunday School, his Grandmother was a Sunday School teacher and once the Superintendent of the Downstairs Sunday School (Children’s Sunday School).
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
