ANNIKA ZWARTBOL — Welcome to our quiz page, Annika. Yes, I do have a daughter your age. She is in second grade like you. Did you enjoy second grade? When you learn some more Dutch words you might be able to write me a note in Dutch. It can come in very handy to know an extra language. Each language has many, many words. How does the poet in Psalter 11 use his words? “0 Jehovah, hear my words... I will make my prayer to Thee.” That is very important, isn’t it?

ALESHIA KIEBOOM — How was your field trip, Aleshia? It must have been extra special to have your mom along. What did you see in the museum? Did Shasta catch another chipmunk? Chipmunks are so cute. When I was young, our cat used to catch them. Once, we saved one and kept him as a pet; his name was Chippy. Now we have chipmunks that pop up in our front yard and raid our strawberry patch.

ANNEMARIE TREUR — We’re happy to have you join us with your sisters, Annemarie. You did a great job on your first quiz. You and your sisters are quite right in your answer to #7. It is possible that the Lord will no longer call to people to be converted if they continue to make excuses; yet, each of us still hears Him calling to us each Sunday, right? How important it is, then, to listen and to ask the Lord to bless it to our hearts.

IVAN VRIESELAAR — I’m always glad there are such things as eyeglasses, Ivan, because without them, I don’t see very well, either. Once you have them, it is surprising to see how blurry things are when you take them off, isn’t it? Was it difficult to see the teacher’s writing on the board at school?

JORDAN VRIESELAAR — The school year is flying by, isn’t it, Jordan? Your memory text (Psalm 19:1-3) has some long words in it, but when you really stop to study it, you see how amazed David is when he looks up at the sky. It is so big, so vast, so bright blue at times, and so filled with twinkling stars at other times. Wherever people live, they can look up and see it. The Bible says, “And God made the firmament...” How great God is!

TIAN BOER — How is your opa, Tian? I hope he is feeling better after his surgery. Even though he lives far away you can show him you care by sending him some mail, right? We have been having very sunny weather, as well. It is so crisp and bright early in the mornings. The Lord gives us this beautiful weather.

ARNO BOER — Yes, Arno, I do think maybe I made the last part of the May issue quiz a bit too difficult. Sorry about that. I’ll try to learn from my mistakes. I’m glad you eiyoyed it, anyway. Do you watch when the farmers are harvesting? How thankful we should be when the Lord has made everything grow and ripen once again.

AMANDA HERFST — I’m sorry to hear you were so sick, Amanda. I hope you are feeling better now. It can be scary when you can’t catch your breath, right? We sometimes hear of a person “struggling to breathe” or “taking his last breath.” Do you ever stop to think how we can seem and feel so strong, and yet our lives really are so frail? Read some of the verses in Psalter 278, and you will see this. I hope the quiz in this issue was a little easier for you and your brothers to do.

JANNETTE SCHIPPER — I also have thought of turning our old sandbox into a garden, Jannette. I have read that this works well. Let me know the end result of yours. How did your guide dog walk go? I’m always amazed when I see how well these dogs lead their owners. I hope that the dog will be a big help to the person you know. You wrote about being blind. Do you know that when the Bible speaks of the blindness of the heart it is speaking about each one of us?

SARA SCHIPPER — No, Sara, I’ve never been to Vancouver Island, but it does sound like a very pretty place to visit. I’m sorry to hear about the passing away of your grandma. I’m sure you do, and will, miss her. When you sing the Dutch psalms you learned, you can always remember her. Above all, think of how much those psalms meant to your grandma. The words of psalms and psalters can be of comfort to God’s people. Ask the Lord to give you the joy and blessing of a new heart.

Love,
Aunt LenaBeth
