I lived in heaven

(by Jenny

I threw this together after reading Penny, WA letter.

(Penny's idea is also under CSMP)

ME Did you know that " I lived in heaven" ?
Friend You did?  When?
ME "A long time ago"
Friend No way......really?
ME "It is true"  
(I shared that this statement would be a bold one, not said with a soft tone but a firm conviction)
Friend What did you do there?
ME "Lived there and loved there "
Friend With who?
ME "With people I know, so did you!"
Friend What happened there?
ME Then Heavenly Father presented a beautiful plan
Friend What about?
ME All about earth
Friend Anything else?
ME and eternal salvation for man.
Friend How could we live with God forever again? 
ME Father said he needed someone who had enough love
Friend To do what?
ME To give his life
Friend Why?
ME so we all could return there above
Friend What a great blessing!
ME There was another
Friend Who? Satan?
ME who sought for the honor divine
Friend Oh no! What happened?
ME  (nod head yes)  Jesus said, "Father, send me, and the glory be thine."
Friend Was Jesus chosen?
ME Jesus was chosen
Friend Then what did he do?
ME As the Messiah he came
Friend What does a Messiah do?
ME Conquering evil and death,
Friend Wow! How did he do that?
ME Through his glorious name
Friend What did His sacrifice do for us?
ME Giving us hope
Friend Hope for what?
ME of a wonderful life yet to be
Friend What life is that?
ME Home in that heaven
Friend Is anyone we know in heaven?
ME where Father is waiting for me.
Friend Wow!  I hope to return there someday too!

The kids loved it!  I just put up the word strips that were the "answers" when we got to them.  This song has a wonderful message, as they all do. 

WE just need to make sure that the children understand what they are singing so they can get the message also.

Once you go through the song, then you can have a question answer game and use the questions above to prompt the answers( which are the verses)
