Mini-Manna for Little Lambs – Day 22 – Joy



Coloring/Teaching

Let’s color this picture! What are the children doing?

I’ve Got the Joy

I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
down in my heart, (where?)
down in my heart, (where?),
down in my heart,
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy
down in my heart, (where?)
down in my heart to stay.

Bible Time

(Act 13:52)  And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.

Story

Katie was sad because her best friend, Suzie, moved away.  All she could think about was how much fun she and Suzie had together!  The more she thought about Suzie, the sadder she got.  Her Daddy came into her room and said, “Why are you so sad, Katie?”

“Suzie is gone, Daddy!  I don’t have anyone to play with!”

“Awww,” said Daddy.  “What about Mary?  Why don’t you call her and ask her if she wants to play with you?  I’m sure she misses Suzie, too!” (make a sad face)

“Oh thank you, Daddy!  That’s a great idea!  I didn’t think Mary would be sad, too.  Maybe I can make Mary happy and Mary can make me happy at the same time!” exclaimed Katie.  (clap your hands and smile)

When we are sad, we can always get our joy back by being nice to someone else.  That is what Jesus would do.  Katie did the right thing, didn’t she?  (Nod your head yes.)  She knew that if she was a blessing to Mary, it would give Katie a blessing, too!

Dear God…
Please help me to be a blessing to someone else that needs it.  If someone is sad, help me to be nice to them and help them to be happy again.  Amen!
