On the Other Hand

The responsorial psalm at Mass this morning was from Ps. 138: "Your right hand has saved me, O Lord."

After repeating this response a few times, Homeschooled Farm Girl (HFG) got a puzzled look on her face, leaned over, and whispered a question: What does his left hand do?

I almost burst out laughing, but then realized that she was serious. Because HFG is left handed, this is a natural question. And one that I think is best to leave for Mrs Yeoman Farmer (who is also left handed) to answer.

That's one of the problems with home schooling. Your sinister daughter will never know the kindness of a Catholic nun teaching her to write with the correct hand. JD
