To Think About Jesus (second verse)

I'm going to continue on with the sign language for the 2nd verse. I will re-post everything from verse one and then add on with verse two.

Prep:
1. Bring 3 pictures found in the GAK (Gospel Art Kit):
The Ten Lepers GAK 221 (there's no image online for copyright purposes I suppose)
Christ and the Children GAK 216
Passing the Sacrament GAK 604 (the photo I have is of a young family with kids (pg 108) but this online version would work I suppose)

2. Learn how to sign these key words (in addition to some in the first verse as there are a lot of repeats):
miles
walked
dust
helped
love
tall
seat
listen
quiet
feet

Use THIS online ASL Dictionary link (to search for the actual word, click on the letter it starts with under "Main Dictionary" and then scroll down under "Choices" to find it)

3. Here are my notes for the 2nd verse:

Think - left hand circles temple but doesn't touch it

Miles - hold out right arm, drag 3 fingers from left hand up right arm starting at wrist and ending at upper arm

Walked - hands at chest level, palms down, swing hands front and back similar to walking

Dust - left hand at chin, palm down, fingers extended and wiggle fingers

Children - both hands at chest level, palms open and facing down, "patting" motion starting in the middle and going outward

Helped - right hand palm up, place left hand on top in a fist with thumb extended up. Lift both hands together upward

Love - cross arms across chest

Not (for shouldn't) - shake your head like "no," left hand in a fist with thumb extended, bring it out from your chin

Hard - make the "H" sign (first 2 fingers extended, thumb holds the other 2) with left hand and make a fist with the right. Hit fists together

Sit - forefinger and middle fingers extended on both hands, thumb holding the other 2, and cross them together like the left finger are sitting on the right

Seat (for chair) - similar to "sit" except the left hand 2 fingers are bent over the right hand, straight, fingers

Listen - touch left ear lob with left hand twice

Feet - right hand palm down, fingers extended away from body, left hand points down 2 times, once by the pinky and another forefinger of right hand (like pointing at each foot)

Not (for shouldn't) - shake your head like "no," left hand in a fist with thumb extended, bring it out from your chin

Hard - make the "H" sign (first 2 fingers extended, thumb holds the other 2) with left hand and make a fist with the right. Hit fists together

Children (for small) - both hands at chest level, palms open and facing down, "patting" motion starting in the middle and going outward

Think - left hand circles temple but doesn't touch it

Jesus - middle finger of the left hand touches the palm of the right and then the middle finger of the right hand touches the palm of the left

Not - shake your head like "no," left hand in a fist with thumb extended, bring it out from your chin

Hard - make the "H" sign (first 2 fingers extended, thumb holds the other 2) with left hand and make a fist with the right. Hit fists together

All - left hand in fist near right shoulder. Then make an "L" shape with forefinger and thumb and cross your body
