We have finished our seventh week of school, and I feel like we’ve really gotten into a great groove. I didn’t take a ton of pictures this week, and honestly it was just kind of a regular, unexciting week, so instead of a normal update I’m going to just share with you our favorite project this week– creating a puppet show to reenact one of Jesus’ miracles. This went along with our current history studies of the life of Christ.
One night, after a long day of teaching and doing miracles, Jesus told His disciples to go out in a boat on the Sea of Galilee while He went up to the mountain to pray.
So the disciples did as Jesus had told them, and went out in the boat.
During the night, however, a terrible storm arose on the lake– lighting flashed, thunder rolled, and the wind blew fiercely.
The disciples were terrified as their boat was battered by the strong winds and huge waves.
Suddenly, the saw something even more frightening– a person walking toward them on the water! “It’s a ghost!” someone cried.
But it wasn’t a ghost. “Don’t be afraid, it is I,” Jesus said to them.
“Lord, if it is You, tell me to come out on the water with You,” Peter implored.
“Come!” Jesus replied.
So Peter stepped out of the boat and walked on the water to Jesus. But as he was walking, he started to notice the fierce wind and waves again, to hear the thunder crashing and feel the rain pelting his face. And he became afraid.
And as he became afraid, he began to sink.
“Lord, save me!” Peter cried. So Jesus reached out His hand and lifted Peter out of the water and helped him back into the boat. And immediately the storm stopped.
🙂 Have a good day, y’all. 🙂
