Aesop's Fable: The Ant and the Grasshopper

The Grasshopper didn't prepare for winter. He said "Don't worry about getting food for winter. We would have plenty" The ant was preparing for winter. When winter came the grasshopper was hungry so he learned to prepare before winter. (by Josie)
It is best to prepare for the days of necessity.
There is a time for work and a time for play.

All Saints Day

Saint Josephine Bakhita by Josie
Saint Josephine was kidnapped and became a slave. Nobody had taught her about God but when she saw the sun, moon and stars she said who made all this beautiful stuff, I would like to know them and pray to them. She finally did learn about God and became a nun. Kids used to love he because she used to pat them on the head. She was always smiling even though she suffered a lot. At the end of her life she was really sick and as she was dying she saw Mary and said Our Lady Our Lady!. Those were her last words. She is the patron Saint of Sudan, where she was born and is special to those who suffer.

All Saints Day

Saint George by Georgia
Saint George is the patron Saint of England, horse riders, equestrians, saddle makers etc.
Pictures of Saint George usually show him slaying a dragon to save the king's daughter who was going to be fed to him. The dragon means evil and the daughter is God's holy truth.
He was a soldier for a man who didn't believe in God. The man killed Christian's. He went up to the Emperor and told him to be better and quit the army. They tortured him and cut his head off. He was a soldier for Christ.
