How do band aids give your skin back?

Eli is four. He has asked me these questions just today and these are not all of them just the ones I happened to remember.

How do plants make sugar?
How does a spider make a web?
How does water get down from the water tower?
How do you make a book?
How do band aids give your skin back?
What if a tree only had one leaf?

Eli is a curious fellow. He asks a lot of questions and I kindly answer each one of them with an answer, in lots of detail because I know he really wants to know how.

Eli is also an artist. He has very good fine motor skills for being four. He draws robots, people, Batman, Bakugans, lots of things and it actually looks like the item he wants to draw. I am impressed with his artistry. Yesterday with stickers that he had he created our family. I am the one with a lot of hair.

He is also learning to read and is almost to lesson 30 in his "homework" book.

I read this Home Life article, March 2010 edition the other day about a young girl who went to Uganda to help in an orphanage once she graduated from High School. She was 18, and became a foster mom to 13 orphans. She decided then that she wanted to be a missionary.

I often wonder what my children will do when they choose a career path down the road. My prayer lately, due to this article that I read, is to pray that God would give me wisdom and insight to the things that my children love and are passionate about. So that I may teach them in a way that glorifies God. I have been asking God to help me see the big picture for them. Most of all, I hope that my children will live and work in a path of life that pleases the Lord like this young lady in Uganda has done. Ephesians 5:10, "Find out what pleases the Lord."
