This beautiful ornament craft demonstrates how to deal with unforeseen tragedy like a tornado or forest fire that can make people feel that God has deserted them. We show that even though we can’t see Him, God is always with us. The balloon in this ornament craft is like our hearts filled with joy. But in times of stress or hardship or tragedy, it feels like a pin pricking our hearts and letting the joy out – like letting the air out of a balloon. But when we feel our hearts are empty, know that God’s love in still with us. Even if we can’t actually see it, we can know that trusting in God will once again fill our hearts with joy. We will help our children remember to think about the good things in life and to be grateful for what they have. And we have a beautiful ornament hanging on our tree to remind us that Christmas is a time of love and joy. Check out our guest post over at The Homeschool Village!
