Sermon on the Mount

I am amazed.
This morning Joseph recited the entire sermon on the mount (Matthew 5, 6 and 7) for us. In Chinese. Then later on in the evening he did it again for a family that we went to visit.  He stood up, introduced himself, then looking around at each of us, he launched into the approximately ten minute sermon. Not one mistake. Only a few pauses to recollect.
I wonder if this thirty-five year old brain could manage a feat like that. Not likely. It has been my dream to become a walking storage of vast amounts of scripture in case the day come when Bibles are banned. Maybe this dream will come true in the next generation.
I'm so proud of my big little guy!
It is only a matter of days before he will have a swiss army knife in his hands.
Joyful Potter, as soon as I find the spare battery of our smaller camera, I'll put a video up of him reciting.


  1. I'm looking forward to it! And I do believe I'll organize an audience of his peers, here, to perhaps take up the baton and run with it....!

  2. Great! Then I must find that battery forthwith. Sigh, I hopped on the computer first thing this morning, because in the middle of the night, my mistake suddenly occurred to me. Too late. Maybe you didn't notice. :) I'm changing it right now...
