Thought I’d just share what we are learning this week (again) because I’m sure you’re curious and because I liked hearing what you were learning.  You are curious… right?

1) Floral arrangements for a child’s birth that are as fresh as the the ones for the child’s funeral can about rip a mother’s heart in two.  So do little white caskets.

2) Overeating pasta for dinner can give a little person miserable stomach cramps and crying may ensue.  And wailing.  The mother will pray that it is in fact an overeating issue, and possibly a lesson learned, instead of a stomach bug about to wreak havoc on the family.  Nux vomica to the rescue.

3) The physical cause for flatulence, how many Chinese characters there are, how to solve equations, counting by fives, what the Bible teaches about roles of elders,how Koreans wore top-knots, that Chinese students walk in a line home from school holding hands, dropping one child off at a time for safety’s sake and which child took to heart the lesson on “bacteria pooping in our mouth and that poop has acid and it causes bad breath and can rot our teeth”.

4) How magnetic new dirt mounds in front of the house are to little boy and that the little boy will not even notice (or care) that every ounce of him is covered in gray dust/dirt/filth when he comes in to eat.  He also shows absolutely no appreciation for lectures on the dirtiness of dirt, but instead seems to embrace the idea that playing in dirt builds the immune system.  Wee Babe should never be sick again.

5) That when a particular woman learns she has gained five pounds, vowing to lose it quickly, yet speaks of said commitment while she is walking into her favorite bakery for her favorite brownie for her favorite breakfast, it’s possible a particular woman is out of touch with reality.  Or… Do gooey brownies build the immune system?

6) That hearing a speech impaired two and a half year old yell, “ahhh-ooo-eee-uh” at the top of his lung is hilarious if you know he is, in fact, shouting, “Hot! Juicy! Burgers!”

7) That His grace is sufficient.  For everything.  Seriously.

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

What are you and yours learning this week?
