I' ve had the great honor of teaching the same class of Sunday School students for 6 years. The students have given me a great of spiritual joy, always in their innocence, givng me a different way of looking at things. For the last three years my Sunday School class has ended it's year with a project. Each student is asked to choose a favortie biblical person, write a bit about that person and make a doll to represent them. The first year was my idea, the last two, to my delight, the students have asked to make the dolls. It is such a pleasure and joy to share my love of art and dollmaking while I teach about the love Christ. This doll is "in progress", you can see she still hasn't been given a head! (time runs short in a 45 minnnute class.) This is the work of nine-year-old, Isla, a bright young lady with many talents. Her doll is Ruth from the Old Testament story of Ruth and Naomi, a class favorite. When Ruth gets a head, sometime this week, I'll post the finished doll. Ruth appears by kind permission of Miss Isla. Thanks, Sweetie. Teaching you has been a wonderful part of my life!
