Bitter to Better Water

Like the disappointing bitter water of Marah, there will be disappointments in life when things don’t go as we expect them to. 

We can use this story to remind children that God is present in disappointment, and all the big ugly feelings, like anger, sadness, etc. Like God turned the bitter water into something pleasant, He can turn things around in our lives too.

** HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PAPER from Amazon** which I use for ALL my crafts because it’s a bit thicker than ordinary printer paper and prints brilliantly!!!
