In sickness, health, keep things in perspective

Got Joey with me today, first time he’s been here since Christmas. I think we can safely say he is hale and hearty again. I wish I could say the same for myself. I will say this day was the best one I’ve had since the flu-bug bit me, and I thank the Good Lord for helping me and healing me.

One thing that sickness and other problems do, is they cause me to think of all the days of good health and no worries, which God has blessed me with, and which I too often, took for granted. Trying times certainly help put things into perspective. It is sometimes amazing when “important” things turn out not to be, and details may turn out to be the currency of the day. Sometimes our good intentions fade away as soon as the storm is over, but I believe my resolutions which stem from this particular episode, are going to stay with me.

Thursday night, Jan. 24, at 6 p.m., the Madison Co. Singing Convention will meet at the Church of God of Prophecy, corner of High and Franklin. It is planned that Bro. Carl will have a knee replacement on Jan. 30, so I’m hoping lots of friends (old and new) will come together that night to lift our dear brother up to God in prayer and song.

Good friend Pat Conrad will be pulling out this week. She is moving back to her home town, Detroit, Michigan, where she has brothers and sisters living. I  know I’m really going to miss her, but she assures me she will be back to visit frequently. Let us pray that God will keep her safe in His care.
