The older we are, the more we need to have tests done to check our health. With the new technology, tests are available that will prevent health issues.

Several years ago, I had a radioactive test done to check for heart problems. I got a good report & everything was fine. I was at DFW airport about a week after the test & security stopped me. They had been alerted by a screening device that checked for radioactive materials. After explaining my test, they let me continue my trip.

We have been working cattle this week. We vaccinate, give medication for parasites, as well as give pneumonia & vitamin shots. Since it is winter, we feed hay & cottonseed. We also have salt, mineral, & magnesium blocks out for the cattle.

We need to use wisdom to benefit our health & our lives. In Proverbs 3vs 1 to 7 scripture states:

Wisdom Bestows Well-Being
3 My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.[a]
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.

We can continue to pray for all of those with health issues. Jesus healed many people during his ministry. Jesus healed a woman in Luke 8 vs 43 to New International Version (NIV):

43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years,[a] but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.
When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.”
46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”
47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed.48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

He can take care of all our problems as well.

We received this from one of our deployed soldiers, Jason Colon.
We just received your great care package!!
It contained a pile of Pumpkin ornamented cookies and some good chocolate-coconut cookies as well. Thank you so very much. We are in Kosovo, not too many people know that Kosovo is still an active war zone, not too dangerous, but it is still categorized as a Combat Zone, and we have restrictions as to where we can go and what we can do. Getting a care package from the home land, USA, always makes for a happy day. I shared the cookies with all my co-workers, they were a big hit. In the box was the Menu for the bakery, wow! I wish I were there to try all those goodies. Please pass on all our Thanks and appreciation to all that put their efforts into building the care package.
