Lots of people are afraid of the dark. Some people sleep with nightlights so their rooms aren't so dark at night. We use flashlights when our house is dark because the power goes out. Even adults become afraid when the sun goes down and there is no light. When it is dark, we can't see what is around us, and we fear danger. The Bible talks about God as being the light of the world. He is like a nightlight for us, keeping the darkness away. God keeps us safe, so we don't have to be afraid of anything! Elizabeth Carter

 

Bible Verse

Psalm 27:1 - The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid?

Prayer

Prayer: Dear God, thank you for being our light so that we don't have to be afraid. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

Hearts Pumping, Rejoicing

<p>Know what we all have in common? A heart! Can you name any of the parts of the heart? <a href=Download this activity and see if you can!

Your heart has four chambers that work together like a pump, delivering blood to your body. There are two pumps on the right side of the heart. These chambers receive blood that has already been traveling around your body, back to the heart. This process of moving blood through the body is called circulation and it repeats itself all day, every day throughout your life!

With each heartbeat, the right side pumps blood to the lungs where it picks up oxygen from the air you breathe. The blood then travels to the left side of your heart where it is pumped out through the biggest artery in your body called the aorta. The blood is then delivered to areas of your body that need it….kind of like pipes deliver water to the different parts of your house in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room.

When you exercise, you need more oxygenated blood. Your heart has to work harder! That's why it beats faster after exercise. The sound of your heartbeat is the sound of valves in your heart closing. Valves act like doors in your heart, controlling how much blood goes in and out.
