Ode to King

King of All He Surveys

King of All He Surveys

Yesterday, I Only had time to walk King before I had to babysit my Burmese nephews. We had a good walk, although not long enough for King. Then I went to look after my Burmese “nephews.”

I once read in a Babysitters guide from Scholastic, when I was too young to babysit, that no matter what kids have at their house, you should bring a “kit” because it’ll be new and exciting. I brought colored papers, colored pencils and crayons, and origami patterns. I, of course, participated in the projects, and ended up drawing King. Then I made it into a 3-d project by adding a separate crown and attaching the whole thing to a toilet paper roll– a good project for children, if I do say so myself!

God and Children

“And if you would know God be not therefore a solver of riddles.
Rather look about you and you shall see Him playing with your children.
And look into space; you shall see Him walking in the cloud, outstretching His arms in the lightning and descending in rain.
You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising and waving His hands in trees.” ~ Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
