Hark on the Ark - Comedy

Liza is writing a story of what it would have been like to have Christmas on the ark.  Noah and Mrs. Noah couldn't be more thrilled that the holy day has finally arrived but their sons and their wives, aren't in the Christmas spirit. All they can think about is the gloom the rain brings, along with frizzy hair, and the stench of the animals or the itchiness of the hay.  Even their Christmas carols are things like "Rain, rain go away" and "Raindrops keep falling on my head."  The whining and complaining continues until Noah and Mrs. Noah have had enough.  They set the record straight about the real meaning of Christmas, and the ability to be thankful no matter what situation you find yourself in.  By reminding the family that Jesus was born in a stable surrounded by animals, and Joseph and Mary didn't seem to complain about the stench or the itchy hay, the family begins to realize they truly do have much to be thankful for and that getting into the Christmas spirit, even on an ark, isn't as hard as they originally thought.

Themes: Christmas, Christmas on the ark, family togetherness, complaining, being thankful for what we have, thankfulness in any situation

More than Enough - Comedy

Seeking some quality family time, a Mom high-jacks her family and brings them to her uncle's cabin, once a favorite family destination.  However, when Dad pulls out his laptop and announces he's got work to do, and her two teenagers would rather play video games and talk on their cell phones, Mom calls upon God for help, announcing, "This is not the quality family time I had in mind." Within seconds, the batteries in her son's video game go dead; her daughter's cell phone suddenly has no reception; and the electricity goes off, leaving her husband's laptop useless.  Stranger yet, the cooler once filled with only sodas and cheese & crackers now mysteriously contains all of her family's favorites foods, including hot dogs, "fluffer nutters," s'mores and watermelon.  This "feast" leads to a campfire, family sing-a-longs, canoe races, and more, all of which bring the family closer together, wishing they had more days like this to spend together.  In the end, even when the electricity comes back on the family chooses to stay united together, it allows the Mom to marvel at how God always provides "more than enough." 

Themes: Family togetherness; making time for each other; planning quality time as a family; Jesus provides more than enough for our needs; loosely linked to the Bible story of the feeding of the 5000 (loaves & fishes)

We Are Family - Comedy

Using the letters that spell out the word "family," one group of family members recounts what being a family means to them.  F is for "firsts" - first words, first steps, first time you get the keys to the car etc. A is for "adjustments" families have to make when things don't go according to plan, like your son not being athletic or mom having to go back to work. M is for "memories" - favorite family trips, pets, and holidays. I is for "ideals" -  the values we want to pass on to children. For instance, "Everything in moderation," or "Treat others the way you want to be treated." L stands for "love" - unconditional love, like when your grandson burns holes in your new carpet. Y is for all the "years" families have together.  A main point is that while all families look and act differently, it's nice to be surrounded by people who love, support and care about each other above all else.
