Last Friday we celebrated the 100th day of school. We even got the T-shirt to prove it.
100 days of cray cray. No pun intended. We do color on occasion. And sometimes it does get a little cray cray. But 100 days is a great time to sit back and reflect. On what you’ve learned. And what you still need to learn.
In my class for math we guesstimated how far we would get out the classroom door if we took 100 steps. Then we tried it. We found it really wasn’t very far at all. We wrote 100 in number form, word form, in dots, and tally marks. We counted to 100 by tens. We even drew a hundred dollar bill.
For English we found how many different words we could find out of the letters “one hundred”. We had fun working together expanding our vocabularies on that one. I believe 30 was our highest count. We wrote a list of 100 words that we each knew.
You might want to see what you can do with 100 for yourself!
God did. The bible used the number 100 lots of times.
There was the hundredth ewe that was lost in the parable of Jesus. Matthew 18:12.
And there was Nicodemus who brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about a hundred pounds to embalm Jesus. John 19:39.
Then there is the hundredfold thst is promised to who has left all for Our Lord. Mark 10:30
And don’t forget the fourteen epistles of Paul that equal 100 chapters.
And there’s Obadiah who saved 100 prophets. 1 Kings 18:4.
And Saul who promised his daughter Merab in marriage to David if he brought back the foreskins of 100 Philistines. 1 Samuel 18:25.
And don’t forget if someone accuses wrongly a virgin of Israel they must pay 100 silver shekels. Deuteronomy 22:19.
And if you are feeling old, remember that Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born. Genesis 21:5
Let’s all thank our God 100 times. For all the blessings He gives us each day. I bet if we kept count, we’d find more than 100 blessings in our next 100 days. Try it. I dare you.
Love and laughter,
