JUST SHOWED UP OUT OF NOWHERE

There he was... A visitor at our farmhouse. He immediately made an impact on our family. Especially us children. He liked each one of us 4 children. Surprisingly, he had no favorites. We all got the same treatment. Mr. Mumps was like that!

The doctor said Mr. Mumps had gotten us very well. And we couldn't even go to school for 2-3 weeks. That just hurt! No school for 3 weeks---that sounded like a vacation. hehehe. And no Fuller Brush Man. No Electrolux man. No Avon Calling Lady. No rides to the Dairy Queen. Just what kind of trouble did this Mr. Mumps get us into?

Soreness or swelling of the parotid glands on one or both sides. Discomfort may range from vague tenderness to obvious pain when opening the mouth or swallowing

Fever, usually lasting about two to three days

Sore muscles

Loss of appetite

Headache

Earache that is aggravated by chewing

Aversion to light, lethargy, and a stiff neck (which may indicate meningitis)
Mr. Mumps had a very viral effect on us children. Then he was gone. Said he had lots of work to do at other homes. Were they going to get vacations too?

As the mumps entered into our house by one man, Mr. Mumps, "...just as sin entered into the world by one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned---" Rom 5:12.

"Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as He (Christ) is righteous. He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning." 1 John 3:7,8a.

"...they (wicked men) have spread out the cords of their nets and have set traps for me along my path." Ps 140:5b.

"So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's laws; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, WAGING WAR against the LAW OF MY MIND and making me a PRISONER of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?

Thanks be to God---
through Jesus Christ our Lord! Rom 7:21-25.

Great analogy. Mr. Mumps certainly had no favorites. He even liked me. Hehehe.
