"When I was a child, I thought God was disappointed whenever some distraction interrupted... Now I know that God expects such interruptions, for He knows our frailty. It is completion that surprises Him." --From the God Whispers of Han Qing-jao
Noah loves playing with patterns. Colors, shapes, letters, lego pieces, alternation, similarity… the whole gamut.
But he also gets upset when for one reason or another he can’t complete a pattern the way he’d like. Lack of resources, lack of concentration. What have you. He likes a nice tidy world from that perspective (although not from many others…)
There’s much yet to teach.
