"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.
