You know summer has arrived when it's time again for Vacation Bible School!
To this very day, when I smell Kool-Aid, I think of my childhood VBS days!
I remember, as almost yesterday, gluing macaroni on cigar boxes(yes, real cigar boxes), painting them and taking them home to Mother for a "jewelry box".
We had no "themes" like today or videos......probably flannel-board Bible stories were the most exciting visual we were ever exposed to! But we did learn many Bible stories that we remember even today!
But I do remember marching into the church to the tune of "Onward Christian Soldiers" and pledging allegiance to the American flag, Christian flag and the Salute to the Bible. "Thy Word Have I Hid in my Heart that I might not sin against Thee"!!
Do you remember the "Sit-down" and "Stand-Up" Chords on the piano??
Ok, enough reminiscing about the dark ages (you tend to do that when you get old)! Let's get on to Today's VBS!
There the decorations........
