At work I received a call from a patient who needed to cancel her appointment. She said her little boy was sick. She thought it was strep and wanted to get him into the doctor.
Her little boy disagreed. He said it was just bugs crawling down his throat, and doctors didn't help that. He didn't want to see the doc. Made me laugh.
At first I wanted to find a picture of a kid with a bug, but that's just too creepy for me. Yuk! So I thought this picture was cute.
Don't ya love how kids explain their feelings, even though adults see life differently. Makes us old fogeys smile. I know, I'm speaking for myself.....
"We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he know us!" 1 Corinthians 13:12 (Message)
Feeling bugs in my throat, possibly, but more in my heart, mind and attitude. Yucky, crawly bugs of frustration, doubt, quit, sadness.....
If you're alive, I know you've been there, too.
Praise the Lord one day He'll explain all of it to us; and in the meantime, I need to take the medicine. The sweetness of His word, helps the medicine kill all my creepy crawlies.
