Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

Yesterday we thought about how by having hope and trust in God, this can help us to be brave and courageous.  Today I want to explore the concept of Trust – what it means and how it can help us to be brave.

Have a look at your hand – hold it up in front of you and study it?  What do you see?  Have a look at everyone’s hands in the class – are they all the same size and shape?

different age,color and texture of hands

Do you think the size of your hands determines what you can do with them?  For example do you think we can all hold the same number of apples or coins in our hands?  Hands are really important as we use them in so many ways….

What is happening in this picture?

….2 people are holding hands – but can you describe who these 2 people might be? Why might a child hold an adult’s hand? How might this make us feel? ……………

…………….safe, loved, cared for, warm?

Listen to this poem called “Father’s Hands” and have a think what message the poet is trying to convey about how they feel….

What did the father do with his hands?  How do you think this make the poet feel?
I think the poet felt safe and secure and had total trust in his father because he knew that his father loved him and could always keep him safe – his father had strong, capable hands that he could use to protect him.
Christians believe that God keeps us safe in his hands – as God’s hands hold everything in them – the entire world! They believe that through having trust in God they will be safe and so we should “Love the Lord Our God, with all our heart, all our soul and all our mind”.

Prayer of the Day

Dear Lord,
Thank you for the abilities that you have given us.
Thank you, too, for the adults in our lives who love us and keep us safe.
Thank you that you hold the world in your hands.
Thank you that we can always trust you.
Amen.
