3. the smallest ones reciting their memory verses in our small group Bible study

Saturday’s theme was three gifts read.

1. the pastor reading First Corinthians 13:4-8 to the beautiful bride and groom as a light mist fell softly on the crowd of umbrellas

2. the bride’s kind thank-you note

Sunday’s theme was three gifts said.

1. her thoughtful answer to the teacher’s questions about Genesis 3

2. the 4th grade boy’s prayer at the end of Sunday School
