Since my kids asked me for another one I decided to turn to my scriptures and see if I had anything underlined. I figured if I had it marked with color it must have been a good one. Nothing was colored. A verse here and there but I couldn't find a Psalm, a whole Psalm, that we should learn until I got to 100. For some reason I had a few verses in this one marked and it was short so I thought it must be a good one. We read through it and liked it. So we decided to set it to memory. I think it would be a good Thanksgiving time Psalm perhaps but we are full of Thanksgiving every day so it is good for study and memorization for any day.
And of course they had to make a comic strip of it as well. Ian and Sophie decided to each do their own this time rather than try to both work on the same one. It ended up being a bit of a collaboration anyway. They gave each other ideas for the images to use for each phrase anyway. They just each wanted to draw their own pictures.
Here is Ian's.
"Make a Joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with Gladness"
I think it is funny that he drew a missionary for serve. I guess we really have pushed serving a Mission.
"Come before his presence with singing"
He chose to draw a picture of Co-op singing time. There is an easel which the leader uses to teach new music to the kids.
"Know ye that the Lord is God"
He drew a picture of the first vision. I love that he came up with that image to fit that phrase!
"It is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves".A man with tools... very fitting.
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture
Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.
Be thankful unto Him and bless His name.
For the Lord is good, His mercy is everlasting.
I can tell Ian is getting tired of trying to come up with things to draw. He is just throwing in stick figures now. But goodness and mercy are difficult for anyone to have to draw especially for a 7 year old.
His truth endureth to all generations
He has a man standing at the pulpit preaching truth. That is how he explained it to me. I talked him into adding the extra stick figures representing different ages of people.
Here is Sophie's finished product. She did the whole thing herself.
