"A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." ...Proverbs 17:22
Not since 10 summers ago have I had this much trouble with my sinuses. I've even taken to keeping a pan of steaming water on the stove while the air-conditioner runs, for it's the dry air that gives me sinus headaches. (Yet another of those epiphanies which made me ask, "Why didn't I think of this sooner?" I mean, hey, I keep the pan on the stove in the winter to moisten the dry air, why not in the summer?)
Then I remind myself to be patient with myself, for God is still patient even though I'm not quite as bright or quick as I once was. After all, 'He knows I am but dust.'
I really don't have time for this babying of my head. We have company coming on Sunday and out-of-state company is due next weekend.
But alas, I keep reminding myself it could be worse. Much worse. And then lecture myself to be thankful that at least I can do something about this. I am not helpless and when I stick with all my handy-dandy natural cures, I do fine. I just need to stop complaining about the time and effort they require.
So anyway, today I will end this post with a smile. Well, I found it funny as did some of my friends at Facebook. Yet I've met some Christians who've lost their sense of humor over the years and well, I so hope you are not one of them.
Do keep your sense of humor polished, especially in these times in which we live, ok? It will become more and more vital in the months ahead. At least, that's what I believe.
So here you go:
"Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!" ...Psalm 32:11
"As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust." ...Psalm 103:13, 14
