The kids loved the scavenger hunt to find their chocolate calendars. Of course they had to have them before school. Cierra didn't have enough time to find it before school but I got a good shriek after school when she found it. The Lego advent calendar looks like it is going to be a big hit too. Marlee gets to open the even days (because she is 6) and Matt gets to do the odd days (because he is 7).

Scripture: Genesis 3: 1-19
Reading: Yesterday we read about the perfect world that God created, including perfect people. Today we read in the Bible about Adam and Eve, and how they disobeyed God. God had given them everything, and had only asked that they not eat the fruit of one special tree. But Eve and Adam did eat the fruit. The fruit made them understand certain things, but eating it brought sin into the world.
God still loved Adam and Eve, but he had to punish them for disobeying him. God sent them out of the beautiful garden, and they had to work for their food. God also made a promise to Adam and Eve: that God would always love them.
Talk about: What kinds of things do we do that make God unhappy?
Prayer: Mighty God, keep us from doing things that make you unhappy.
