Leprosy

"Leprosy, leprosy, where is my leprosy? Once I had it, and had it galore. From me head to me toes, what was left of my nose was infected, but that's all before! Leprosy, Leprosy, ah,ah,ah, he, he, he I've a debt that can not go unpaid. To Elisha and God, and I also applaude the courage of a little handmaid!" (sung to the tune of some Disney song. I don't know which one. But I do know my Bible stories!)

Does anybody remember Sunday Night Live with Richard K. Allison, Jeffery S. Miller and the Refreshment Committee? The above was a parody that they did one night. It was probably 20 years ago, and I still remember it.

I had read the story of Naaman to Deacon recently. He didn't say much about it. Last week his Sunday school story was about Jesus healing the 10 Lepers in the New Testament. Deacon asked me, "Why did Jesus have to heal them? Why didn't they just go dip in the Jordan River?"

So we had a little conversation about it not being the RIVER that healed Naaman, but God.

One of my favorite things about being a mom is seeing how their little minds work.

A few nights ago I was reading the story of Joseph to the girls. Addie then asked if God had made Joseph's brothers be mean to him and sell him as a slave so that he could have the life that he did in Egypt. I love the questions kids ask.......I even had to come up with a child friendly answer to Josie's "why did Potipher's wife want to sleep with Joseph?"

Is the song by any chance to the tune of "Les Poissons" from The Little Mermaid? It seems to fit.

Joolee,
I haven't really touched on the Joseph/Potipher's wife thing. Or Bathsheba. I am sure there will be questions a plenty with those.

Jamie,
I looked "Les Poissons" up on Youtube, and that is in fact the song. Good job! I don't even remember that part of The Little Mermaid. It has been YEARS since I have seen it and even back then it was probably only once or twice.

My sis-in-law, on the other hand, is a Little Mermaid expert (or at least used to be :)
