No, we don’t always do our work at a cute coffee shop. Usually we’re in our sweats in the living room – much less cool looking. But this day, we ventured out and made a day of it.
As I was trying to make sense of this:
I peeked over to see what Matt was trying to make sense of:
When he asks me to help him study, I usually have trouble pronouncing the words in the questions. He knows what I’m supposed to be asking though and proceeds to answer without making me feel bad.
The more Matt learns about the human body, the more I marvel at our Intelligent Designer.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!… Romans 11:33
I’m currently teaching about the Solar System in 2nd grade again. I taught it in first grade at my old school for 8 years. And every year I get to this unit, my mind is blown…again. From teeny tiny mitochondria to ENORMOUS galaxies, my sweet Lord, who bends low to converse with me, is the author of it all – the Almighty God of the Universe
in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:3
Just think, astronomers and doctors have studied and researched for thousands of years and still admit that they’ve only scratched the surface. More has yet to be discovered. More that God already knows all about because He made it.
We have to study and study and stretch our minds to try to grasp these things. But God doesn’t. At all.
As one author said,
He’s not overwhelmed by numbers, nor stupefied by detail. – B.Knox The Everlasting God
I, on the other hand, am OFTEN overwhelmed by numbers and stupefied by detail. Yesterday, I had to take a nap just trying to organize my closet.
I think how this everlasting God allows people to discover the workings of his creation – people who call Him Lord and plenty who do not. Plenty who don’t even acknowledge His existence but are happy to take credit for discoveries.
I imagine a little ant telling his little ant friends, “Hey, look what I found!” instead of, “Hey, look what He made!”
I love 2nd graders’ responses. They show their awe and delight with such unabashed enthusiasm (“Whoa!!”) And I’m right there with them – 23 little ants, myself included, in awe of the God of the Universe. He is all-knowing! He is so creative! He is infinitely wise!
