Hence the reason for this post, being that it is 3-14! Son #1 mentioned to me LAST NIGHT that he needed for me to make a KT's (my Mom) Pecan Pie for his math class on Friday, March 14th. He told me the spill about what pi is in mathematics. Okay son.....I did know this once upon a time:) But go ahead and refresh my mind:) I thought that was a neat thing for the teacher to do....as a way of celebrating pi day! This is one SCHOOL PROJECT that I can do:) BTW...Wednesday was D-Day for the presentation of the pot-putt boat! All I can say is...when I get my composer together enough to explain the rest of the story....I WILL:) lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay back to this pi thing. As I was reading up, excuse me refreshing my mind, on it....the description stated that from the earliest history of pi, nothing has changed, except now with computers, they can calculate in 8 hours, what man would have worked 8 hours a day for 30,000 years to accomplish. Wow! Also, it has now been calculated to more than 200,000,000,000 digits, although, the exact value of pi cannot be computed. And....no other number has been pondered or examined as much. Aren't you glad you know that! lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That made me think of how great God is......like pi......we cannot fathom how BIG HE IS, and also like pi......he has not changed! No matter how many hours we put into a day of trying to thank him for his love........our pens would run out of ink and our tongues could never tell of all His blessings! I started to break out into the song, "The Love of God", but I'm pressed for time. Go to the good ole Red Church Hymnal or to http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/l/o/loveofgo.htm and listen to it. The 3rd stanza was found penciled on the wall of a patients' room in an insane asylum after he had been carried to his grave. The general opinion was that this inmate had written the epic in moments of sanity. Goose bumps!! "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?" Romans 8:35
Thanks macromoments for sharing the cyberhymnal website!
So, today on 3-14, let's celebrate pi.....but most of all....God for allowing us to have scholars to even imagine a number this great! And for the wonderful PIES that we get to eat:) Now, that's what I'm talking about!!
Hope you have a great weekend!
