"I should have a cake today," said the little girl to me the other night. "Why do you need a cake?" I asked. "Because today is my birthday!" she replied. "How old are you," I asked? "10," she replied. "10?, WOW! You sang great in music class. I am very proud of you, and by the way, Happy Birthday!" I said.
I love vacation bible school. For me, it has always been such an inspiration and privilege to work with the younger generation during bible school. It is something I look forward to every year. It never fails that vacation bible school always inspires me to write, and that is one of the reasons I love helping.
"What is your name?" I asked. "Tiffany," she replied, smiling. And, a beautiful smile it was, as are all the smiles on the faces of the children at VBS. Each year, we do our best to promote VBS and I receive great joy in knowing that every child that is meant to be there, is there. God is SO good! I think I could do VBS every day of the year and never get tired of it.
We sang "Happy Birthday" to Tiffany before VBS ended that night.
