Footprints in the Sand LEGO Style

Hello again everyone, today I am sharing a poem called Footprints in the Sand by Mary Stevenson. 

I like the poem because it reminds me that the Lord is always there and that he never leaves.  During times that are too difficult HE carries us through.

LEGO® Science Fair Project

I would like to share today, one of my readers science project boards.  Christian was inspired by a one of my previous posts and completed this project for school.  He received a very nice grade from his teacher.  Congratulations, Christian, and thanks so much for sharing a picture of your science board.

I always welcome my readers to share Biblical or educational creations. What are you building with your LEGO® bricks today?




Here's my original post back in 2012:

Last year, I used my LEGO® bricks for my Science Fair Project.  My project was titled Skyscrapers Built to Last.  I made a shake board and tested my LEGO structure at different heights.  It was a lot of fun and I won first prize.

Here are pictures of my science board, shake table, smallest and largest structure.  You can find instructions to build your shake board at Science Buddies website.  Enjoy and happy building!
God Bless,
CJ

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I really enjoy celebrating St Patrick's Day.  I love how St. Patrick used something so simple as a clover to share to Gospel.  Did you know that is why we are here?  God has called us to share the Gospel.  If we don't do it now, we may lose our chance.  Do you know Jesus?  If you would like to learn more click here.



I like this Veggie Tale video that tells about St. Patrick.  I hope you enjoy it to.



God Bless,

CJ

Daniel in the Lions Den

Daniel was a great example of Christian character.  He was a hard worker and stood out from all the rest.  He was faithful to God and in return God saved him. The best part of the story was that King Darius was changed through this miracle.

I created a LEGO scene from this Bible story.  If you would like to read the story you can find it in the book of Daniel, chapter 6.

God Bless,

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

All my life I have been celebrating Dr. Seuss's Birthday! Dr. Seuss is my mom's favorite children's book author. Green Eggs and Ham is her favorite story so, we always have green eggs and ham for breakfast to celebrate.

 I was excited to see while reading News-O-Matic that an old unpublished book was found and will be released on July 28, 2015. It is called What Pet Should I Get?  News-O-Matic is am online newspaper for kids.  I highly recommend it.  It's my favorite thing to read.  News-O-Matic is available for Apple and Android devices.




I hope you enjoy the LEGO® creations.

God Bless,

CJ
