Jumping for J.O.Y.

So I taught children's church this week. We talked about Joy (we are studying the fruit of the spirit) and we talked about finding joy by putting (J)esus first then (O)thers then (Y)ourself. We jumped for joy. To make a J we decided to jump up kicking our feet behind us. For an "O" it was suggested we touch our toes, but that wasn't moving, so we decided to do summersaults. Y was an easy one jumping up with our arms in a Y.

The kids had a blast, and they wanted me to do it too. So I did. That's when I realized that a 37 year old woman shouldn't do summersaults on carpet covered cement.....

(Granted I don't think the kids will forget the lesson!)
