A Different Perspective on Sickness

by bzephyr

Yesterday at church, I was sitting with the women on the right side while Ben was on the other with the boys. A friend of mine, Luci, came and sat down next to me carrying her 4 year old grandson in a sling. He slept the whole service. Afterwards, she told me that he and his sister both were sick with “skin hot” (fever). Then the leader began the final song, everyone began shaking hands. Luci told her grandson “touch the white baby. Your sick will get better!” Since Jenny Beth had recently been ill (and medevac’ed to Cairns, Australia) I have been a little more ‘germ conscious’ than normal. I swallowed a little and smiled as the sick boy took my baby’s hand. Of course, we all washed hands carefully when we got home.
