Having Sailor's arm in a cast presented a new problem. He couldn't get in and out of his shirts with the way they were made, so I went ahead and made a few that had a short sleeve with snaps along the bottom. I hoped if someone else saw them they would understand that it was a necessity and once his cast came off I would sew a regular sleeve in.
Sailor quickly learned how to to be able to play but once the itching set in it wasn't quite as pleasant. He asked how long it would take for his arm to heal and I tried to explain and then added that God was healing his arm and before too long it would be all better.
That evening as I was making supper I was startled when our back door opened and snow and wind came blowing inside. When I went to close it Sailor was standing there holding it open. I scolded him a little for opening that door and he explained that he wanted God to come inside to fix his arm.
I gathered him up and sat on the rocking chair and wondered how I was supposed to explain to a three year old that God doesn't need doors to be able to heal his arm.
