Today is Thursday, March 6 and Grandma hopes it will be a good one at that! Get your tasks done, Childrobotic, music, dancing of physical education done. For a health lesson you could talk about your skin and what nutrients can do for it. Also research and find out what is being said about anti-bacterial stuff and is non exposure to a little germs the best for us or if some exposure develops antibodies in our system. Grandma should do some research along with you. I will see what I can find. Link to anti-bacterial products first.Then look into osteoporosis. Lets add some animation to the scene. Now look at what Coconut oil and Turmeric can do. Now look at Histamine and what it does. What about Beta Glugen for our immune system?

Next Dr. Whiting has something to say about smoking and other things. Ok, and what does our diet and metabolism have to do with everything? Then there is our liver, what do we do about it?
We will move from here to our Bible. There was a part for yesterday about the Temple in Mark 11:12-19 to read. Then lets read "Jesus anointed by a Sinful Woman, Luke 7:36-50; Jesus talk with a Samaritan Woman, John 4:1-26; Life in Bible Times-Carrying Water--Getting each day's water supply was the job of women. Each day they came to the town well, filled their jars, and then carried the full water jars home on their heads." from Faith Alive. Read a lesson "Samaritan Opposition, Luke 9:51-55; The Disciples Rejoin Jesus, John 4:27-38; Many Samaritans Believe, John 4:39-42; Parable of the Good Samaritan, Luke 10:25-37; Did You Know? What was a Samaritan? Luke 10:33 A Samaritan was a person who lived in Samaria, a district between Judea and Galilee. The Jews did not like the Samaritans, who were foreigners. Jesus' story reminds us that, with his love in our hearts, we too can help any person in trouble, whatever his or her race or religion or nationality." as written in the Faith Alive Bible.
