Photobucket Ewwww.....Prepare to be Grossed Out.....

Why do people pick their noses? I don't get it. I may have a phobia about this because of my upbringing overseas. They'd sort of push on one nostril and blow it all out....EWWWWWWWW.....

I don't remember the older two girls picking their noses....but I clearly remember one of our older sons in church when he was about two. He was mining for treasure, pulled his finger out with a goober on the end, looked at it, shrugged his shoulders and ATE it! In church. That was many years ago.

I've watched son after son do this.....why? I gag.

The other night Mike must have even been grossed out, "Child, go get a kleenex."

"Why?" as he ATE it......

I've tried to train them well. This is DISGUSTING....shoot....I saw an adult in a car beside me at the stoplight pick his nose.....I gagged.

WHY? Is there something deficit in a young child's diet that would cause this? How do you train a child that this is simply gross? I've been watching this strange, gross occurance for years and years...and I'm perplexed!

Surely, my wise readers will have some sort of solutions to offer? Now, I really am exhausted, Jamin is home, and I should go to bed....I probably should have gone before I wrote this post.

Photobucket God is GOOD!!!! all the TIME!

I'm so RELIEVED. We had our first PWOC Bible Study tonight....which means I'm really getting my big rocks fit into the schedule......I never know if I'll really be able to pull off a new schedule until we do it.

We had 18 tonight.....discussion went well. I love the new faces and the old faces...... I love the topic of discussing our Kinsman/Redeemer....our God who avenges, pays our ransoms, sets us free, gives us a future...

This is a huge praise. I know I shared this on the PWOC blog but I don't think I shared it here. We've had retirees, older moms and students in our group. There has been no need for a children's ministry. I've consistently said that when there was a need God would supply the answer. We've had two young moms express an interest in attending Tuesday nights, but they needed to bring children. I talked with Mike and Ch. T and they found a student who LOVES children and is blessed to be able to lead our children's ministry. One of the new moms came tonight with her precious children...and Ashley was excited. I'd told her that I wasn't sure we'd have children because we'd not advertised....but we DID.....

I have much to write....school, taming our schedule, a couple of book reviews....but Jamin called and is ready for me to pick him up from work.

Maybe tomorrow.

"May the Lord reward your work, and your wages be full from the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have cme to seek refuge." Ruth 2:12

I'm preparing for study tonight. Betsy sent me this photo and it "fits" so well.

This little kitty is such a picture of contentment, rest.....the big dog is surely capable of providing refuge.

May I learn to lay back, relax, listen to His heartbeat....and let him carry the burden.
