Learning the World – The Wind
September 12, 2009 § Leave a comment
The other day, at Trader Joe’s, Annelissa and Alatheia were given balloons. They girls love to play with balloons, but when they got outside the balloons were not fun for Annelissa anymore, the wind was blowing pretty hard and her balloon had an apparent mind of its own. The rest of the car ride home Annelissa was very uninterested in and even afraid of her balloon.
Later that day she was retelling the story and she said, “Why was I so mad about the balloon?”
Her mom replied with a question, “I don’t know, why were you so mad about the balloon?”
She responded, ” I was mad because the wind was blowing very hard. But I know that Jesus can make the wind blow hard or blow gently.”
Annelissa has a book called, “God Has Power,” and we are reading in the Gospel of Mark for family devotions. “God Has Power” marvels at the verse in Mark 4:41, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” His power is evident even to a 3 year-old little girl.
