My glasses fit me dandy, my false teeth feel just fine; my hearing aid is
handy, but I sure do miss my mind.
One of our neighbors had a mother who dealt with Alzheimer's disease
for about ten years. We have life-long friends in PA where the wife has
also been struggling with it for ten years but is still with us. I have an
E-Cheer reader in PA who lost his wife to that dreaded disease and has
devoted the rest of his life to informing others about it. See his site at:
I say this as a reminder of how very precious and special our minds are.
Most of us simply go on day after day taking the gift of our mind and
intelligence for granted. It isn't until we hear of someone who is
struggling with the loss of a sound mind that we are reminded of how
fortunate we are.
Only a God of love could create something is intricate as the human
mind. It's an awesome device. It grieves me when I see how our young
people treat it so casually and give no thought to what they put into it or
how they mistreat it with drugs. If they only realized with what a
valuable resource they are tampering.
Psalm 119:169(nlt) is a verse we should desire: "O Lord, listen to my
cry; give me the discerning mind you promised." To have a sound and
discerning mind is like owning a rare jewel. Thank God for it.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
