He often sings it to himself during the week while he is playing with his toys. The song—music and lyrics both, with lyrics borrowed and adapted from Revelations—is undeniably catchy, and must appeal to children. Until I heard my nephew sing the song to himself one day during the Christmas holidays, I had not thought of the song since I was .
My mother tells me that the song was my favorite Sunday School song, too, although I do not remember having a favorite Sunday School song. My nephew started Sunday School in September of last year. Apparently things have been going well for him at Sunday School, because he looks forward to going each week.
In addition, he must be behaving himself in the presence of outsiders, because my brother and sister-in-law have not been asked to withdraw him. Sunday School for preschoolers is, above all, about socialization: the kids learn to interact with each other. Aside from singing a few songs and listening to a bible story, the kids spend the hour playing games organized by their Sunday School teachers. Until recent years, when I noticed this peculiarity arising in Protestant denominations, I thought only Roman Catholic churches adopted such practice.
The church calendar is becoming more and more complicated! Once the current pastor steps down, I question whether my parents will remain happy in the local Presbyterian parish. I believe it possible that they will revert to The Lutheran Church, in which they both were raised as children—and, surely, the rest of us will follow.
My mother says that our pew now seems empty without him. My nephew celebrated his fifth birthday at the end of October. It is impossible for me to believe that he is five years old—and yet it is impossible for me to believe that he has not been an integral part of my life since the day I was born. I cannot imagine life without him. I can see my older brother in him a thousand times over. He is a virtual replica of my brother. I was not around to observe my brother in his earliest years—he was six years old when I was born—but, observing my nephew now, I no doubt see glimpses of my brother when he was the same age.
That, I suppose, is one of the hazards of being a grandmother. Joshua and I keep in close touch with my nephew. Every day or so, we send his mother messages containing amusing pictures or stories for his benefit, and she sits with him at the computer, showing him the pictures and reading him the texts. Animals are always a big hit with my nephew, so Josh and I send him lots of animal pictures and short animal stories. He especially likes bears of all types—and he wants his parents to get him a bear as a pet! My nephew knows that Josh and I will return to the Twin Cities soon.
This proves that he now measures the passage of time by weeks, which he did not do one year ago. I wonder whether this is one of the benefits of attending Sunday School. Posted by Drew80 at PM.

I have two older brothers whom I love dearly: one, 39, is married and has a young son and daughter and works as a financial analyst; the other is 36 and single and works as a civil engineer. The newest member of my family is Joshua, whom I met in Washington while I was in my last year of law school and while Josh was in his last year of undergraduate studies. We immediately became inseparable and have faced the world together practically from the day we met.
We have many interests and participate in numerous and diverse activities, yet we are mostly homebodies, playing sports, reading history tomes and passionately discussing them and spending time with family.
