My 6th grader teaches

I look over

and he’s drawing –

silly faces, doodles, some story in his mind,

blam! blam! blam!

Michael notes


he’s filling out the visitor tear-out flap

with a goofy name, address, email

and prayer request for more cake

and I wonder –

is he getting anything?

anything at all out of the message on conflict?!?

Then during the week

someone does him wrong.

and maybe twice?!


with all her “spiritual” wisdom.

“Burn me once, shame on you.
Burn me twice, shame on me!”

and he says,

“Mom, it’s just like Pastor Todd said.

Fill the gap with trust.

That’s what I’m doing.

Don’t get mad.

Just fill the gap with trust.”

He was so excited!

With a big smile on his face he said,

“See, Mom, I’m practicing what I learned!

This has been a great week so far!”

Yes, it has,

and it IS shame on me

for doubting that he heard anything,

and for not practicing what I heard on Sunday.

just a little disclaimer…
I post this so I can remember this 1 day out of the 365, this 1 time (out of the seemingly 50 billion other times) we saw Jesus working! It’s not always roses here, peeps!! 🙂
