"Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body."
~ Proverbs 16:24
"He hushes the storm to a calm and to a gentle whisper, so that the waves of the sea are still."
~ Psalm 107:29 AMP
The doctor seemed happy with the condition of my daughter's neck lymph nodes . . . he said that some that he was concerned about, for they were hard, have loosen greatly . . . Glory Be To God! . . . we are still waiting for the blood results to be completed ( some things he is checking on are Mononucleosis syndrome & Epstein-Barr virus) but until then we are to schedule an appointment with Children's Hospital in Washington DC to have her re-examined by a doctor there & then surgery to have them drained . . .
I was talking to a friend of mind & she told me that when her son was in 5th grade he had contracted Mono . . . guess how he got it? And nope it was not by smooching . . . from a drinking fountain!!! can you believe that? mmmmm- mmmm-mmmmm . . . the ironic thing here is the other day I was just thinking about drinking fountains . . . I was looking at them & pondering what virus/germs/kooties they may yeild & how, if there was anyway, you could possible prevent them . . I was thinking how in the restrooms you find the sinks are all automatic now . . . wave your hand in front of them & they turn on . . . some places it is the same with the soap dispenser, paper towel dispenser & even the tiolet will flush on its own . . . many stores now have bacterial wipes available for you to wipe down the cart handles before you use them . . . we have doors that open & close as we approach . . . so as passing a water fountain I begin thinking about that area . . .truth be told I am not sure how you may be able to prevent germs gathering there . . . I am thinking when ever possible just to play it safe we are going to start carring a water bottle with us . . .
Yesterday our area experienced an earthquake . . . magnitude 5.8 . . . let me tell you that was - interesting!!!!
Today is my youngest first day of back to school . . . she is entering fourth grade & last evening she cried herself to sleep . . . so today we are going to strengthen our faith & believe that God is protecting her & it will be a good day!
God, I need Your calming voice in my troubles. Please help me. I will praise You because You give me Your peace and strength. Amen
