The Lord cared for Sarah as he had said. He did for her what he had promised. Sarah became pregnant. And she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. Everything happened at the time God had said it would. Abraham named is son Isaac. Sarah gave birth to this son of Abraham. Abraham was circumcised Isaac when he was eight days old as God had commanded.
Abraham was 100 years old when his son Issac was born. And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh,” Everyone who hears about this will laugh with me. No one thought that I would be able to have Abraham’s child. But I have given Abraham a son while he was old.

Thank you for the story of Issac. We know that you always keep your promise. Please help us learn to be patient. Amen.

Outdoor Family Fun
Take a “Joyful Walk” around your neighborhood. Write down everything your child is happy to see. When you get home, count all the things you saw, and thank God for them.
Enjoy sharing the experience of making new colors. Make mixtures in primary colors (from the recipe below), and then put a scoop each of two colors into a resealable plastic bag. Check to be sure the bag is sealed. Allow your child to “squoosh” the plastic bag to blend the colors. You may want to add another color or another scoop of a color you’ve used.
When your child has finished the mixing colors, hang the bag(s) in a sunny window and admire the effect. Talk about what happened with the colors and how we can rejoice and thank God for the amazing colors he has made.
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 3/4 cup water
- food coloring.
- In a medium saucepan, mix cornstarch and a little water until smooth. Add food coloring to the remaining water—the darker the better—and stir into cornstarch mixture.
- Stir over low heat until the mixture is clear and thick, being careful not to let it burn.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you have three batches: blue, red, and yellow.
- Allow mixtures to cool before working with them.
The mixtures can be stored three to five days in the refrigerator for later play.
