Read: Luke 2: 36-38
Praise Jesus! He Really Loves Us
The moment old Anna saw baby Jesus, she began to praise God. I wonder how she expressed her thanks to God for loving us so much. Did she dance her praise? Did she sing her praise? Did she use an old familiar psalm that fit just right? Or did she make up a song of her own?
Once I made up a praise song to the tune of “I Am Slowly Going Crazy” by Sharon, Lois and Bram. It has actions too. You put your right hand on your cheek and your left hand on your right elbow and sing:
Jesus really, really loves me. 1-2-3-4-5-6 switch. (put your left hand on your cheek and your right hand on your left elbow)
Really, Jesus really loves me. 6-5-4-3-2-1 switch. (switch back)

Questions: How do you praise God? Talking, singing, dancing, drawing?
Together: Choose a song you all know and add your own lyrics of praise to Jesus.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for giving us fun ways to praise You.
