Peace In the Midst of Trouble

EJ, our newborn, just visited his cardiologist for cardiac evaluation.  After a month from his birth, we found out that his weight gain is slow compared with other infants of his age.  Doctors calls it "failure to thrive".  We are in search of the reason for his poor weight gain. Our pediatrician considered having him undergone the cardiac evaluation procedure because heart disease can cause a child to use more calories than a normal child does. While waiting in the hospital, I have bought a book with me so I will not be bored while waiting.  I found this verse in the book that I was reading on.  This continually reminded me to be calm.

No Cook Clay (Hardens When Air Dried)

Never thought I can make a beautiful craft out of cornstarch and glue.  It was one boring day so I decided to search for a new project which I and the kids can work on.  Pinterest is the perfect site to look for that.  Upon searching I found this idea.  Making clay using cornstarch and glue as the main ingredient.  After reading the procedures I head on to our kitchen get the cornstarch of course we had glue in our house too and started working.
