Elijah and the Ravens

This past week in Tapestry of Grace, Year 1, Unit 20, we were studying about some of the prophets of the Old Testament including Elijah and Elisha. Daughter and youngest son made these cute raven puppets to retell the story of Elijah being brought food daily by the ravens. You can get directions for this project here The supplies for this project were simple and I had them all on hand.

There are so many other miracles that we have studied about during our continuing journey through the Old Testament. It is amazing the way that God brought His chosen people back to Him. He often times used surrounding nations to conquer them, thus turning their hearts back to Him. Is this something that we need to think about with our own nation today? Let me know your thoughts.
My thoughts go to this verse:
Proverbs 14:34
Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. (KJV)
Blessings, Suzie
