A good Scriptural review. I managed to get my first (short) article out with the new computer.

Thanks.

I am still recovering.

Russ,

Congrats on your new computer, and getting it all set up.

Hope you get back to feeling healthy again soon. I know that the stomach flu is not enjoyable at all. The last time I had it, there was a period of time when nothing that I did really made me feel better.

At least getting sick helps us appreciate our health more. I know that, once I got over that last flu, which was the worst I've ever had in my life, I was very aware of how wonderful it is to be healthy (and very thankful for it when I got well), which I usually took for granted without thinking about it. You never really miss something until its gone.
