The incredible Jack-Jack

I don't watch movies too often but I was hoping to catch this on cable.

Finally, I got to see Jack-Jack of "Incredibles 2" yesterday -- the infant with 17 super powers.

Here's a video showing the little one's super powers.

That's how movies ought to be, or at least for five-year-olds like me who like funny stuff.

We don't like too much talk, too much drama, too much violence, but we like ACTION -- the Jack-Jack way!

He really saved the film. 

I loved hearing his laughter, watching his face change, and watching him morph into other characters.

I also love how a cookie would make him cool down when he gets really mad.

I was tickled, too, when I saw him "chomping" on an enemy's leg or how he fought with the raccoon as shown here:

He also gets his super outfit after his Aunt Edna "studies" his super powers. Here's a cool video that shows all that:

She's not an easy person to please but with sweet, innocent Jack-Jack, her heart melted.

That's how I consider babies to be.

Lots of moods and personalities.

Sometimes charming, sometimes impossible.

But always incredible!

Now you understand why I stopped counting at age five.

Adults "lose" their super powers.

Coz they get too serious and forget to laugh and play.

Be like Jack-Jack and watch your world transform.

A book even God would like

People keep telling us kids to read the Bible.

But gosh, it's such a THICK booooook!

And the letters are so tineeeeeee...

We're not bad kids.

Christ likes us, right?

He always said, "Let the little children come to me" or something like that.

I don't think adults are His favorite.

I also don't think Jesus would be mad just because we have not read His Dad's book yet.

I'm that sure of Christ.

He showed up in my dreams you know...

Jesus didn't tell me to read the Bible then.

But He showed me other things.

But you know what?

Finally, finally!

I found a really cool book yesterday and it's all about the Old Testament.

I got all excited!

It says:

"The Old Testament is a lively book..."

It also says:

"It is crowded with colour..."

The book also says this about the people of the Old Testament:

"They are searching for a new world and they speak to those in every generation who care."


Lively. Colorful. Caring.

We kids like that!

Plus, I like that there are lots and lots of colorful drawings and pictures in the book.

Not like the Bibles we see -- all tiny words, ugh.


And so thick and heavy.

It could be a pillow.

I wish I was like Edgar Cayce wherein all he had to do was lay his head on a book, fall asleep, and when he woke up he'd know ALL the contents of the book.

Not fair! 

How come I can't do that?

Oh well, since I can't, I might as well read this book I got yesterday, study it, enjoy the pictures, and finally understand the cool people of the Old Testament.

I will also learn about the prophets and the kings and the warriors.

And no one forced me to do that.

I am exercising my free will.

I think God would like that.

He did lead me to THAT book after all.

He knows a lazy toad, I guess...
