My World – The Sequel

The boys are going to a Vacation Bible School at a church other than ours.  They love it because they get to see friends they haven’t seen much this summer. 

The theme of this VBS has to do with pirates.  What little boy, or big boy, doesn’t like pirates? 

They open and close with fun songs about God.  There are some funny songs that deal with pirates.  From what I’ve heard, there is a part where a pirate picks his nose. 

An overgrown boy most certainly must have come up with this theme.

The song leader improvised the other night and told the kiddos to pick their neighbor’s nose.  He quickly followed it up with, “Just kidding.  Don’t really.”

Yes. It was too late.

DS#3 stuck his finger up the nose of DS#2.

No, I’m not kidding.

It scratched the inside of DS#2’s nose and there was a little blood. 

It was a big story at home. 

I stand in awe and amazement of what our God has created.  I’ve seen the ocean, the Cascade Mountain range, raging rivers, waterfalls and rainbows.  I have been rendered speechless at new life coming into the world and how God is able to create all these things and more.

Stop giggling – I can be speechless – for a little bit anyway. Hmmm!

Anyway, I don’t think any of us have to look too far before we can visibly see His work around us. 

His work is visible in my boys too.  I just have to squint to see it sometimes.

Blessings & Hugs, Elizabeth



  1. We should be in awe of God’s sense of humor when he created male and female to be soooo different from eachother!
