Friday Thoughts~

Not much going on today...still recooping from out HUGE cookout feast here at work yesterday....I just LOVE food days...Yumm :O)

So instead of spending this weekend in NYC like I did last weekend I will be teaching at VBS(Vacation Bible School) I will have the young teens. I really enjoy teaching this age. They are not to "big for their britches" and young enough to enjoy some crazy games. Tonights game involves water balloons..hehehe.

One of my fondest memories as a child was attending VBS each summer at my oh so tiny country church slam out in the middle of "God & Nowhere". I always loved that week spent with old friends, fun games, and snacks. But most of all learning the nightly bible verses and theme songs. I still remember one year we had a song called "Arky Arky" come on Jennifer, you know you want to sing it with me :O)

Uhmmmmm....Let me clear my throat...memememememe

okay, I'm ready...

The Lord told Noah to build him an arky arky
Lord told Noah to build him an arky arky
Build it out of gopher barky barky
Children of the Lord

The animals the animals they came in by twosy twosy's
the animals the animals thay came in by twosy twosy's
elephants and kangaroosy roosy's
Children of the Lord

It rained and poured for forty dayes dayes
rained and pured forty dayes dayes
Almost drove those animals crazy crasy
children of the lord

The sun came out and dried up the landy landy
Look the sun!
It dried up the landy landy
Children of the Lord!

So there you have it....one of my all time favorite VBS theme songs!!!

~Until Next Time~

I know that song well and was singing it right along with ya! =0)

But you forgot:

The Lord told Noah, "There's gonna be a floody, floody." Lord told Noah, "There's gonna be a floody, floody! Get those animals... out of the muddy, muddy!".... children of the Lord.

(& you guessed my middle name correctly!)
