...our health that is.
Last week I had the "privilege" of having my yearly appointment with my endocrinologist doctor. I always imagine she will find all kinds of things wrong with me, but no, she didn't find anything wrong, at least nothing we didn't know was already wrong. I say "privilege" because we may not have access to the doctors we want if the "National Health Care" people get their way. Canada has a national health care system and both my grandpa and aunt might be alive today if they had lived in the states.
Anyway, that is a rabbit trail that you probably don't want me to go down because I am quite passionate on this issue. I am glad for good health and for all the doctors have done for me and yet I know that ultimately our health is in God's hands. How comforting to know that we personally know the "Great Physician"!! I have strange health issues. For example, she gave me a perscription for a shot to carry around with me in case I get really sick, in an accident or something. I can quickly give myself this shot and maybe avoid a trip to the emergency room or maybe save my life. Again, how good to know that God is in control! This is Arthur and I's yearly "get-away" and we go shopping and get a motel. So, even going to the doctor can be fun, if only they didn't weigh you!!
My girls have been cleaning house for a lady that was very sick. Each time they visited her she was convinced she was getting better. She died last week and the girls are at her funeral as I write this. She was only 62. Please pray for this family. Sometimes we need these reminders that our lives are in God's hand.
