We so often association Noah's story with the giant ark, the animals marching two by two and the endless days of rain. By the time we get to the end, we are just so thankful that the water is gone that we sometimes miss the real gem of the Noah story--the rainbow and the promise from God that is represents! The Bible tells us that God does not "change His mind" and that He fulfills each and every one of His promises (Numbers 23:19) so the fact that the rainbow is always a reminder of God's promise to never again flood the earth is a wonderful thing! Seeing a rainbow after the rain reminds us that God is a very real and active part of our lives!


Colors of the Rainbow

The Rainbow is a Promise
(Tune: Did you ever see a lassie?)
The rainbow is a promise

A promise, a promise

The rainbow is a promise

A promise from God

He'll never, no never

No never, no never

He'll never flood the earth

That's our promise from God

The Rainbow
One day the sun was shining bright
(hold up right hand)
But clouds came along, & it was dark as night
(move left hand over right hand as if clouds were covering the sun)
The rain began to sprinkle down
(wiggle fingers of both hand while moving them downward)
Soon it was raining all over town.
But when the clouds had passed on by
(move both hands to the right)
A beautiful rainbow stretched across the sky!
(make an arc overhead)

God Made Me!

I am fearfully and wonderfully made! Psalm 139:14

Our God is the God of great things (galaxies, planets and stars) and small things (caterpillars, ants, and spiders) and everything in between. Right smack in the middle of all that is His creation that He loves the most: us! The Bible tells us that we are made in the image of God Himself (Genesis 1:26), that God made is in incredibly different and special ways (Psalm 139:14), and that He knows each of His us very well (Matthew 10:30). What a blessing it is to be made and known by the God of the universe!



God Made Me
Two little eyes to look to God
Two little ears to hear His Word
Two little feet to walk His way
Hands to serve Him all my days.
One little tongue to speak the truth
One little heart for Him in youth
Take them all Jesus let them be
Always loving true to Thee.

God Made Me
God made me, God made me.
In my bible book it says that God made me.
God loves me, God Loves me.
In my bible book it says that God loves me.
God help's me, God help's me,
In my bible book it says that, God help's me

God Made
God made the tall, tall trees, (Arms stretched above head)
God made the bright, bright sun, (Arms wide open)
God made the birdies, tweet, tweet, tweet, (Make hands tweet like a bird)
And God made me! (Point to self)

God Made
Sung to the tune of "Twinkle, twinkle..."
God made trees that grow so tall and the little ants so small.
Apples red, the big, bright sun.
Stars that twinkle when the day is done.
Mommies, daddies, babies, too.
God made me and God made you!!!

I Am Special
(tune of Frere Jacques)
I am special (point to yourself)
I am special
Don't you see? (make binoculars with your fingers)
Don't you see?
Someone very special (hands out to the side, palms up)
Someone very special
'cause God (point to heaven) made me (point to yourself)
God made me!

Jesus Made Me Just Like Him
To the tune of "Jesus Loves Me."  Touch each part as you sing.
Jesus made me just like Him

Eyes and ears and nose and chin

Hands and fingers, feet and toes

Heart that loves and hair that grows.

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me

He made me just like Him.


And we'll close in the immortal words of VeggieTales:
