What Happened Now?

Micah has taken his four year old status seriously and began to be more physical with… well everything. The other day he came down stairs after his nap with a black encrusted nose. I looked at him asking if he’d had a bloody nose. He said yes he “squished” it. I said, “I’m pretty sure you didn’t do that napping. How did it happen?” After much coaxing, he eventually told me he was hanging off the bed – upside down – when he fell on his face into the carpet. Not impressed, I’m sure my eyebrow was raised while I listened to his nap time escapades.

The next night as we were herding them up the stairs for bedtime, Micah zips past us chasing the cat. Next thing I knew he came back crying with an already swollen eye. Man the cat got the better of him! For the second time in as many days I said, “How did that happen?” He proceeded to tell me that the cat escaped his grasp as it made a desperate dive for under the bed.  Confused as to how this related to his black eye, I asked again. Basically it boils down to the fact that the cat fit under the bed but Micah’s face didn’t. He crashed strait into the frame. If he keeps this up he’s going to have to steer clear of all beds since they are apparently hazardous things for little boys.

On another note, Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I for one am very thankful we are all healthy and still in one piece. This year is almost over – it has been difficult in some ways and wonderful in others. Such is life. I wonder, would we appreciate the goodness of life if we never experienced the difficulties that come with it?


Pray for them

Father, “Let your steadfast love come to [Name], O LORD, your salvation according to your promise; then shall [Name] have an answer for him who taunts [him/her], for [he/she] trust[s] in your Word.” In the name of Jesus I pray, amen. –Psalm 119:41-42
