Twas the Day After Bible School

Twas the Day After Bible School

‘Twas the Day After Bible School

Another year of (Vacation Bible School) VBS at Piedmont Baptist completed. I got to help with the youth and the van ministry. It’s a blessing to serve to see these kids learn about Jesus.

In 2014, on the last day of Agency D3, Pastor shared with me after I got done with the van route of a poem that somebody print it off for him. It was entitled Twas the day after Bible School. It has the same kind of flow as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

I don’t know if this poem is the same as the one he had but I found one on the internet and wanted to share with you since we just completed our VBS last night.

‘TWAS THE DAY AFTER BIBLE SCHOOL

‘Twas the day after Bible school and all over town

a sigh of relief, we all settled down.
Out to the golf course goes Pa in his cap,
And back in the bedroom Ma is taking a nap.

Gone Linda, gone Brenda, gone David and Johnny,
Gone Margie, and Mary, and Ronnie and Donnie.
Gone stories, and prayers, and songs in the air,
Gone paint under fingernails and paste in the hair.

Rest sweetly, dear workers and wake with good cheer,
For Bible School won’t come again for a whole ‘nother year.
As they drifted off, I heard them exclaim’.
“It was worth all the hard work and we’d do it again!”

Hard work

In addition, I know that Vacation Bible School can be a lot of hard work. Especially since we get up, go to work, turn around and head straight to Bible School.

Then, go home, study for next day, go to bed, then back up in the morning. Some of us even have to be at church early to prep for the day or even help on van ministry to pick up the kids. However, that hard work, but it is well worth it to see the joy on these kids and even adults faces. The seeds that get planted, water or even a full harvest.

Just remember anything we do for the Lord’s benefit. Plus what ever we do for His Kingdom doesn’t go in vain. (See 1 Corinthians 15:58).
