Post Thanksgiving thoughts . . .

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

Johnson Oatman, Jr.

Last night I was really challenged when we sang that hymn at church. How often do I find myself complaining to God about the trials of medical school when I should be thankful for so much. I have so many tremendous opportunities every day that I can miss the best of because I’m focused on self and not God. I need to do what Psalm 100 says and trust in His mercy and truth.

100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with
praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth
endureth to all generations.

On another note, if you are interested in singing and speaking and how it works I was shown in lecture this morning a really interesting site. It shows a woman’s vocal cords while she made noise.

Cute Card (Updated)

Well, yesterday I received a Thanksgiving card from my 11 year old cousin. Take a gander.

Well, I just visited the card again, and it’s a different card. I wonder how that happened? Fortunately, it is still funny.
