Struck Down, But Not Destroyed

 “… we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are now entering week three of our local version of House M.D., minus the cuteness of Hugh Laurie. Even Emma’s been sick and she’s my healthy child.

We’ve had sinus infections, stomach flus, bronchitis caused by allergies and general malaise.

We’ve missed a total of seven days of school, nine hours of work and one track meet.

We’ve expended $65.00 dollars in co-pays and over $110.00 in prescriptions.

But the Spring is on the horizon. The sun has come out. The birds are chirping. The daffodils are blooming.

It’s time to shoo everybody all outside and sweat the germs out.
