As I age and lose my energy or beauty (as if I have ever had any), I feel more and more like the seven little ones in the Snow White story, written by the Brothers Grimm.
Sneezy – Allergies are consuming my life
Doc – Self-medicate with Benedryl
Sleepy – Too much to do and not enough hours.
Dopey – Hangover from of lack of sleep
Grumpy – Everything that moves hurts
Bashful – Unprepared to carry on any debate.
Happy – I know the TRUTH! Jesus is greater than any need I have.
As I move on in my eighty second year of life, I really like number seven better than number one. The hard part is the Lord says in everything give praise and thanks.
The only way I can do that is to remind “self” that I know He is greater than anything that comes against me.
And that gives me a happy feeling, and I hang on to Happy.
WOW! I feel better already, and I have forgotten about the next birthday.
