We finally have some really cold weather in OKC. I hate the runny noses (so much wiping! 7 little noses!) but I love the pink cheeks!
Colds are so funny. We can try to prevent them but there's not much we can do once we have one. The body basically works it out on its own. It actually seems that many physical afflictions work themselves out without any conscious assistance from us. Doctors are wonderful, but often merely assist the body's own work of self-healing.
So isn't it interesting that we give so much attention to the body and what ails it (when it generally "heals itself") and yet give so little attention to the ailments of the soul (which are not self-repairing).
