Today's puppet skit with Princess Annie really convicted *me*. I'm not sure how much the kids got out of it but the Lord really spoke to my heart during the skit. Princess Annie was bemoaning the really bad day she was having. I gently reminded her to praise God. Praise God??? For all this bad stuff that is happening in my life??? Yes, because if we give in to the things around us, it will steal our joy, but if we praise the Lord for who He is and for His son, then we will be able to rejoice. Aha! That's what's been missing! Praise! I will praise Him while I have my being.
