"Es sieht so aus, als ob der Sturn vorbei waere."
That is our German phrase for the day on our calendar, and it means:
"Looks like the storm is passing."
For evidences that the Hunter house is returning to normal (depending on your definition of normal), here's a little glimpse into the conversation heard around the dinner table tonight:
Abby: "Why are there 6 plates out tonight?"
[Note: There just were 6 plates, no particular reason. Probably
one was going to have sour cream on it or salsa, who knows.]
Brad: "We're saving one seat for Jesus!"
Levi: "I don't see Jesus eating off the pirate plate."
Abby: "That's because he's invisible."
Levi: "He's not invisible."
Luke: "One theory is that He's so big you can't see Him."
Brad: "In His man nature, you can see Him, but His man nature is in heaven. In His God nature, He's a Spirit, so you can't see Him." Then, switching topics, Brad asks, "Have you seen a homeless woman on the street with a cup?"
Luke: "No, but are those people homeless who have monkeys who dance and do tricks?"
Stacey: "Where did you see that?"
Luke: "On TV. And did you know that chimpanzees share 79% of our DNA?"
So.......we are praising God that--
The record breaking heat wave has ended.
Luke's chicken pox are gone.
Brad, Abby, and Levi are pretty much over the stomach virus.
(Stacey seems to have a touch of it, so please pray for her.)
and that we actually had a conversation and a home cooked meal around a table (nevermind that it is our coffee table, and we were all sitting on the floor until our container arrives...hopefully next week!)
