Twelve hours and thirty-three uploaded Spanish files later I will soon be able to call it a day! Cristina and I have prepared materials to teach children the psalm that I think every one should memorize—Psalm 23. Not memorize it in your head, but to bring it into your heart.
This is not the picture that goes with what I have uploaded. This was a little break I took. I’ve had this picture in my files for decades and today I went all out using colors. I love colors.
I have not only posted materials in Spanish but some of the files are in English, so if you want to check it out, got to MX1414.wordpress.com under Illustrated stories. Maybe you can recommend the page to friends, missionaries, Sunday school teachers, and others.
If you’re a parent, let your children memorize the Psalm. If you’re a grandparent, give it to your grandchildren. Make a little booklet and take it with you. Use it to witness about God’s faithfulness.
Why so many files you ask? Maybe I exaggerate! But I want to think of different options.
Flash-cards with pictures and flash-cards with the text, in color.
But most of my readers in Latin America do not have color printers, so I have made files in gray-scale. Then there are those who love to color themselves. So I’ve made files in black and white.
We have flash-cards for teaching, we have 10 coloring pages for the psalm. We have 10 color posters. Then we have the pages to make the booklet, also in color, gray-scale or b/w.
We have also made bookmarks. To top it off we have flash-cards to teach about the Good Shepherd.
Here is a sample of some of the pictures. David was a shepherd boy. Cristina chose to make a shepherd boy to illustrate. You can see the shepherd in each of the pictures.
I grew up with this psalm. Every time we said grace at the table, we would end with: “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.”
How wonderful to have the Lord as our Shepherd!
