A Little More Air Violin, Please

There is nothing like having lunch with a preschooler. This afternoon, Henry explained to me how the body digests food while eating a stick of celery spread with peanut butter and a family of ants. Apparently, the food goes down a tunnel and then travels all the way to Canada. Upon reaching The Great White North, the chewed up, stringy green package visits a candy factory where it actually becomes sweet candy. Finally, it travels up the tunnel again into the mouth as delicious candy. And with the added bonus of ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate chips.

A little while later, I caught him very passionately holding a slice of red pepper and playing “air violin” with his index finger.

It’s a refreshing blessing to sit and dine with childlike imagination. As adults, I have a feeling we don’t draw on this gift as much as God would like. Perhaps we should be peppering our prayers with a little more air violin.

  1. Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. I’ve just started experimenting with this “blog thing,” so your words are especially meaningful. After all, I have now activated my Facebook account (yikes!). Linda, you have been such a blessing to our family. For real. And, yes, “in every change, He faithful will remain.”

  2. Thank you for your beautiful writing Matthew. So much inspiration; so much truth; so much faith; so much love. Wow! What a blessing you are.

    Yes….”Leave to thy God to order and provide; in every change, He faithful will remain.”

    Rich blessing to you with love.
