Questions for daddy, ‘Why do people die?’

Questions for daddy, ‘Why do people die?’

Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

My daddy is the question answerer.

I can ask him anything. And he will give me an answer.

Why do people die?
Why do people die?

Sometimes, I can understand. Sometimes I can’t. But at least my daddy is always there … and he always tries.

I want to know why people die?

One of my teacher’s sister died. She was not an old lady. And she didn’t get hit by a bus or anything. She just died.

Mommy said she got sick.

Then why do people get sick and then die? Same problem for me.

I get sick sometimes. Does that mean I am going to die?

Daddy?

“People were not supposed to get sick. People were made by God to live forever. But people didn’t listen to God. They disobeyed him and after that things started to break. Sickness started to grow and fight with the perfect world that God made. Sometimes sickness wins. But in the end God will win. He has made it possible for people to live forever again. Only in this next time, sickness will never have a chance. It’s called heaven.”

“So, I don’t have to worry about dying when I get sick?”

“Nope, mommy and I will take care of you. And no matter what happens we will be with each other forever at some time.”

“Thanks, Daddy.”

Why Children Need to Learn the King James Version of the Bible

Why Children Need to Learn the King James Version of the Bible

Having just written about how robots can teach us kids a new fundamental R in the Reading, wRriting and aRithmetic skill set – pRogRamming … there’s also not only a need to look ahead but to look back.

My daddy was wondering out loud to mommy about why we are still learning the King James Version of the Bible at my school.

I wonder out loud what he is talking about. But anyway …

On the way to school each morning … abt a 20 minute commute, IF I get ready early enough daddy will let me watch something on his Samsung Galaxy super phone.

Read: Samsung is coming to town.

I watch My Littlest Pet Shop, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony and such cool stuff.

Well, don’t you know. One of the ponies from Equestria found herself sent back in time to do something or rather and all of a sudden an old demon queen began talking to Twinkie Pie using Ye and Thou and Thine and such strange words.

But … I KNEW what she was talking about. Because those are the same words we run into when we read the King James Bible sometimes. How cool is that?!

And it makes total sense … to not only look ahead but to also look behind, too.

How cool!

How do you spot a Costco thief? Answered.

Question: How do you spot a Costco thief.

Answer: Read on.

Costco Thief
Costco Thief

The other day my daddy and I were shopping at Costco.

Usually the first thing we do is stop by the book pile to see what is new and what is not. I climb in to the basket and read books while daddy pushes me around and buys stuff.

The other day we saw a lady with an open bag of Pita Bread chips or some such snack.

She was munching away.

We ran into her a couple of times. The last time we saw her the bag was empty and she set it aside and headed for the check out.

Hmm… she munched on all the food, then threw it away without paying for it.

Daddy said, “That’s stealing.”

When daddy finished shopping we put the books back that I had read and we headed for the checkout.

“Uh, oh,” daddy said.

“”What, daddy?”

“Do you know how to spot a Costco thief?” Daddy asked me.

“Nope.”

“Well, for me,” daddy went on, “It’s looking in the mirror.”

Somehow I got what daddy was trying to say.

You don’t need to be bicultural or multicultural to know that taking something that is offered up for payment and consuming it without paying is stealing.

Ouch!
