Tonight, I had the interesting task of picking popcorn from my son’s nose. Earlier in the evening, he had mentioned about sticking a kernel up his nose, and I told firmly told him not to do it. A while later, the same son came to me almost crying and exclaiming that his nose hurt because he had popcorn stuck up it. I tried getting him to blow it out; instead he blew it further in. I then got a toothpick, but that wasn’t working. Finally, I used a tweezer, and that worked after quickly praying. This son and I had a very serious discussion regarding obedience. Afterwards, he apologized profusely. I have been praying that the Lord would help their disobedience/sin to be caught quickly. I want them to learn these lessons now while they are simpler than later when the consequences are much greater.
