Lesson Learned:  God made us and determined our birth days way before we were ever born.
Materials Needed: glue, scissors, construction paper, markers
Bible Verse :
Psalm 139:13-16
13 For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be.
Talking Points:  God made you just the way you are.  He knew when you were going to be born a long, long time ago.  He made you inside your mommy’s tummy, forming you perfectly. He even knew what you would like, the color of your hair and your eyes, everything. 

Questions:  Who made you?  What day is your birthday? If you have an older child, you may ask him/her if they remember when their brother or sister was in their mommy’s tummy.
Make a birthday card with your child for someone you know who has a birthday soon.

Dear Lord, thank you for planning our lives so very long ago, and making us fearfully and wonderfully.  We are perfectly made, according to your plan. Amen!
