What's It Wednesday #59
Remember Sunday School? Getting dressed up in your frilliest dress and patent leather shoes with a big bow in your hair. The teacher was always so sweet and smelled like lavender.
I was flooded with all these happy memories when I was poking in an old dresser drawer and found these. Did you have these bible cards when you were little?
One side shows a pretty picture and a verse.
The back gives a lesson to go along with the text.
These aren’t mine. I found them while out antiquing and they had to come home with me. Notice the date, December 29,1901 and the price at the bottom 10 cents per year!
This is my favorite, the attendance card of little “Lydia Wilson”. I wonder why she missed that 2nd Sunday? Did all that tardiness cost her the cookies and juice afterward?
Who saved these precious cards? Little Lydia or her dedicated teacher?
Someone thought to treasure those Sunday lessons. Learning about God, holding hands and singing “Jesus Loves Me”, and juice and cookies after.
