Water Bugs & Dragonflies

Hello Families! Today for Story time we are reading Water Bugs and Dragonflies.  This book is most popular for explaining death to children. I chose this book for today, because it’s also about new life. The water bug in the story changes from a bug to a dragonfly.  We will celebrate Jesus being alive on Sunday. Jesus is alive, but he has changed, Jesus is alive in all of us.  Take time today to talk with your family about where you see Jesus alive in your home.  I see Jesus in the spring weather and new life blooming all around us!
