The kids and I were having a bowl of ice cream for dessert after dinner one night. Cole gets brain freeze and starts jumping up and down and crying, he runs to me with his mouth wide open. I hurry and stick my thumb pad in the roof of his mouth cause someone told me that makes it go away quicker, and it really does. Its one of the best fun facts to know and tell.
Z asks him what wrong, cause he wasn't paying attention to Cole. Cole tells him, "I have high cweam stuck in my forehead, but I okay now."....and he continues on spooning it in.
Acts chapter 4 closes by stating that the Christian believers in the early Church did not consider their possessions to be their own, but they had all things in common, and that a church member, Barnabas, sold a plot of land and donated the profit to the apostles. Ananias and Sapphira also sold their land, but withheld a portion of the sales, having decided that they did not wish to give it all to the common purse.
In chapter 5, Ananias presented his donation to Peter claiming that it was the entire amount. Peter replied, "Why is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit?" Peter pointed out that Ananias was in control of the money and could give or keep it as he saw fit, but that he had withheld it from Peter and lied about it, and stated that Ananias had not only lied to Peter, but also to God. Ananias died on the spot, and as a result, everyone who heard the tale became afraid. Three hours later, his wife told the same lie and suffered the same fate. (this exerpt take from wikipedia)
Some believe that this donation was not a free choice. If it were, Ananias and his wife would not have attempted to conceal their retention of some of their money, which they clearly wanted to do. Instead, they were forced into concealing their choice - and paying the ultimate price when this was discovered.
Others interpret this donation as a free choice. However, Ananias attempted to look pious in front of others while secretly hiding some of his wealth. This greed culminated in lying to the Holy Spirit in which he was killed for.
So we were discussing telling lies, and how so and so had lied about so and so activity.
Z- You would have to be pretty bold to lie to God
A- but they didn't think they were lying to God, it was just Peter.
Z- I'm not sure I would have wanted to be friends with Peter, I mean you coulda been walkin down the road and lie to him and fall out dead.
May-(insert nerdy Steve Urkel voice)- Why yes, Peter, I took a bath today? SMOTE!
(insert a hill-billy voice over) Hey what's that roasted fish smell?....(insert valley girl voice) ooooohh, he so didn't take a bath.....
Z thinks this little commentary is hilarious and falls out laughing. At first I don't get it then when I do, the voice overs get me and I start laughing. Then Z and I are laughing at each other cause he thinks I don't really get the commentary and I am laughing at him cause I think he doesn't get the commentary........So I explain it to him what Maysie has implied, and he tells me,
Z- I get it mom, you paused, so I thought you didn't get it and were laughing to be included
May- (shaking her head at us, like we are two stupids....still laughing at each other)
Sky had her second set of biopsies this past Monday to see if her medication is working. While they were in they put a PH Monitoring Probe. This is usually done to smaller children, but sometimes older kids will have to do this. This thing is basically a telephone wire that goes through nose, down her throat, and into her belly. It monitors acid levels for 24 hours or so.
They had taped the wire coming out her nose onto her face and behind her ear. When we brought Sky home she was still groggy and wasn't messing with the set up to much. As she really awoke she started to panic and just go nuts about wanting the thing out, she was stomping her feet and pitching a fit, if her eyes would have had lasers they would have killed me, she was so aggravated.
I had to hold her hands down and beg her not to yank the thing out. I explained to her if she took it out we'd have to go back and do this all over again.
So after some coaxing she decided she would try really hard to stay busy and leave her hands off of it and just try to deal with it till the next morning when we could pull it out.
I left her to watch some TV and continue to get unloopy. When I came back to check on her I said, "Sky can I get you anything?"
In the most sarcastic voice I have ever heard from her little body, "uuuuhh, yeah, how about something to yank this out with, do you have that?"
I had to snicker cause she was still pretty agitated and her eyes were telling the story.
Those of you that know her well, know the I am really angry with you look, she can't hide it well at all.......I am feeling those of you that know the look saying, "yep" shaking your heads that you know it. Nana, I am feelin you know it the strongest LOL
I found 12 more 4 leaf clovers.......
