Lice, yuk! Don't bring back those memories! Very good lesson.

I'm afraid I've been there, done that. You expressed it so wonderfully. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Plagues come to remind us of our vulnerability and of our dependence on God. You mastered the telling of it so well that if it were not for the discomfort and anxiety you experienced I would say some more plagues will give us some nice stories. Well done.

Oh, it makes me itchy just reading about it. But you've done a good job putting this plague into words and reminding us of our need to accept the Spirit's comfort and to persevere.

OUCH! I'm not looking forward to those days - since we have a very curly headed daughter (not sure what our son's hair's going to be like yet -doesn't have enough lol). But, isn't it good to rember that through it all, God is there.

Yeah, we fought it when the kids rode the school bus - after the first bout, we delivered the kids. Good documentary.
Good job explaining your plight and your willful decision to re-focus on God. Been there with flooding septic tanks - but not the lice (PTL)! Liked this: "My perspective had plummeted to the basement of my spiritual house. I felt as though we were under a plague. Were we being punished for some unknown infraction?"
I was a judge for Retreat and I liked this entry very much. It delivered a great message with humor--I could really relate to the "everything is going wrong at the same time" syndrome!
