  3. Hey nin...

    I know you posted your sorrow about jonah's situation a long time ago, but i've been thinking about you and praying for you over these past few weeks, and i believe that God has given me an insight into your situation...

    i was reading an article about hannah and samuel...and how when he was three she had to take him to the temple and leave him there...

    now, that's one of my favorite stories in the bible...everytime i get to it, when i'm reading to my kids i still get all teary eyed even after having read it 5 times...

    i can't get over the fact that this mom had to give up her kid when he was three, and can just feel her heartache as she leaves him at the temple with the old man Eli, and walks away.

    Well, in this article, the writer brought out the fact that Hannah had such incredible faith, that she believed that when she brought Samuel to the temple she wasn't giving him to Eli, or even to the temple, but she was giving him to GOD, and because of her faith in God's sovereign love, she was able to walk away.....cause humanly there was no way any kid should have been left with Eli...he was an old man who did a terrible job of raising his own kids, and had absolutely no idea how to raise a godly child....yet because of Hannah's belief that obedience was the way to walk, she was able to trust that her baby was going to be okay....HE WAS ONLY THREE! How could she just drop him off at the temple (i'm sure the place wasn't kid friendly) and have that much trust in God.

    Now, I've "given" all my kids to God too, but I don't know if the working out of that "giving" could ever go so far as Hannah went....maybe that means that my trust in God's love and authority....(he knows what's best for them and he loves them more than me)...is not great enough for such a test.

    How does this story relate to you and Jonah....well, i was just thinking about your distress over the influences that she has to come under as she regularly has to leave your care, and how disturbing that is to our belief that we have to protect them from the evil that can so easily affect their innocent little minds....yet if we can believe, like Hannah, that our children are being looked after by God, it sure does relieve some of the pressure.

    Hope this makes some sense in your week.

  7. I'd love to think that those are the reasons why I only put one blinkie one....but really, it was because I couldn't get the dumb thing to work. So in part, in was very sanguine of me, I wasn't having any fun so I gave up ;)

    Brian Head Welsh was not Korn's lead singer. Jonathen Davis is and has been Korns lead singer. Head played guitar.
