Advice on Colds

A friend of mine had been sick for nearly a week when she suddenly began to feel better.

"I tried so many different things, and now I feel so much better! The only thing is, I'm not sure what I tried that helped most. Or, if it was just a mixture of everything," she told me one evening.

Here I am, with a terrible cold and wondering, what things do you try that provide you with even the slightest bit of relief? Medicine is not working in my case.

Please, give me your tips for feeling better quickly.

One thing about me.....

This was a question that I faced on my first day of Wellness class. Our instructor wanted us to introduce ourself to our neighbor, and our neighbor introduce themselves to us. We then had to introduce each other to the class and tell one thing about the person we were introducing. As the class began to fill with chatter to meet one anothers neighbor, the girl next to me and I just looked at one another.
"Okay...something about me..." I said to her. "Well, I really don't know what to say about me".

Meanwhile, in my head was swirling, I'm a Christian. Tell her that. No....I don't want to. Why not? Well, if I tell her then that's what she'll tell the whole class. I'd rather people notice that there is something different about me without being told that I'm a Christian.

So, I told her that I have a big family. (sigh) Have you ever been in this situation? What would you have done if asked for one thing to tell about yourself? Would it be that you are married? Have children? Or that you are a Christian?

Be honest.

Well Said...

"...Christians as a whole, spend far more time reading self-help books and listening to motivational speakers than we do reading God's Word or praying and making our requests known to Him."
