Row Row Row Your Boat - Lesson 17 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs


Colossians 3:23-24

New King James Version (NKJV)
23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for[a] you serve the Lord Christ.

Acts 16:16-40

Paul and Silas In Prison

Just as in the silly song for this lesson the rowers are 'merrily' doing their work - so did Paul and Silas.  Being sent to prison for casting out a spirit possessing a slave girl, instead of being beaten and giving up, Paul and Silas are praying and singing about God's glory.  God releases them from their bonds, but likely due to their joyous attitudes they stay there and are able to talk and commune with the Jailer's family.. ending with that entire family getting saved and baptized!  God really pulls off miracles and usually never how we would expect it to happen! Be joyous in all that you do!

Old Mother Hubbard - Lesson 16 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor doggie a bone,
When she got there
The cupboard was bare
So the poor little doggie had none.

Philippians 4:19

New International Version (NIV)
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

1 Kings 17:7-16

Elijah and The Woman

Old Mother Hubbard likely felt much like the woman in this bible story.  The good thing is that even though there was a drought and it was very possible this woman and her son would die, God stepped in when they were in need.  Their trust in this man of God saved them - and in the end themselves - the boy literally regained his life in the story.  God is amazing and we should truly trust in Him to provide us our needs and not worry about everything around us! 

Mr. Derek talks about when God fed a man by ravens and then the miracles that happened with an old woman and her son.

Jack Sprat - Lesson 15 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs

Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean
Jack ate all the lean,
Joan ate all the fat.
The bone they picked it clean,
Then gave it to the cat
Jack Sprat was wheeling,
His wife by the ditch.
The barrow turned over,
And in she did pitch.

Says Jack, "She'll be drowned!"
But Joan did reply,
"I don't think I shall,
For the ditch is quite dry.".

Ezra 8:23

New Living Translation (NLT)
23 So we fasted and earnestly prayed that our God would take care of us, and he heard our prayer.

Daniel 1

Daniel's diet under Babylon

Jack Sprat and His wife each had different diets that they lived by and the Israelite did as well, but when they were under the rule of Babylon they were being forced to eat foods that God had made clear were not 'clean' to eat.  By convincing the ones over them that they could eat just vegetables and drink water and still be strong and healthy God blessed them with knowledge and wisdom that made them very important to the king.  When we fast we are not doing it to be hungry or to lose weight, we do it to give to God to show him our devotion to Him in our lives. Jesus even mentioned how important fasting is when we face a problem that is not easily solved.  God wants you to be strong and healthy, as well as wise and intelligent - do not be afraid to give something up for a little while for that gift to come to you!!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - Lesson 14 of Nursery Rhyme and Silly Songs

    Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
     How I wonder what you are.
     Up above the world so high,
     Like a diamond in the sky.

     When the blazing sun is gone,
     When he nothing shines upon,
     Then you show your little light,
     Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

     Then the traveller in the dark,
     Thanks you for your tiny spark,
     He could not see which way to go,
     If you did not twinkle so.

     In the dark blue sky you keep,
     And often through my curtains peep,
     For you never shut your eye,
     Till the sun is in the sky.

     As your bright and tiny spark,
     Lights the traveller in the dark.
     Though I know not what you are,
     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
     How I wonder what you are.
     Up above the world so high,
     Like a diamond in the sky.

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
     How I wonder what you are.
     How I wonder what you are.

1 John 2:10

Amplified Bible (AMP)
Whoever loves his brother [believer] abides (lives) in the Light, and in It or in him there is no occasion for stumbling or cause for error or sin.

Matthew 2

The Magi On the Quest For Christ (The Star that was their guide)

A star MOVED to show the WISE men where Christ was.  We should be like that star.  Shining brightly for Christ .. guiding others to Him.  Let us not be ashamed of Christ within us - let us understand that we can be a Star for God.  All of us.. no limits on age or ability! Shine for God! Just like the traveler in the song, we are thankful for the 'star' that guides us to Christ!
