2018 – Give Your Best!

Why not make every day Christmas? Not just once a year, but learn to be a giver every day! Give a little, give a lot, some here, some there. What’s it all about? It’s about LIVING TO GIVE!! Don’t be a stagnant pool. Be a River of Life that flows freely from the Springs of Living Waters (Revelation 7:17).

I once knew a man who had the worst psoriasis one could imagine. His skin was covered with red scaly itchy painful sores. His joints were mangled, where he could barely open his hands. He had suffered for so long, and I felt such compassion for him!! The strongest medicine I had would barely help just a little bit.

Then . . . he for-gave his father. . . and a true miracle happened! When he came back to me a short time later, he was off all medication, and HE LOOKED LIKE A DIFFERENT PERSON!! His countenance was very bright. His skin had only a few minor sores. But his joints were completely RESTORED!!! He could open his hands fully, and all the swellings were gone. I was stunned and humbled. I could only do so much medically, BUT GOD could do so much more! And He did it through this man’s for-give-ness.
So, whether it’s giving a financial blessing, or a smile, or even tearing up an old I.O.U. from someone who hurt you, live every day by giving your best. LIVE TO GIVE!! Make it your life’s motto.

ALL THE BEST IN 2018!!!

My wife and I experienced blazing summer in Rio and frigid winter in Eagle River. We made some wonderful memories with family and friends.

I am looking forward to seeing you and renewing our relationship.

Skin For Skin

This title sounds like a type of skin grafting, but it is a quote from the Adversary (Iyov 4:2), better known to Christians as Satan or the devil (Job 4:2).  Of course this famous story pits the righteous man Job against the fallen archangel Lucifer.  For sins of pride and other shortcomings God allows Job to fall prey to this evil antagonist who promptly kills his children, steals his very successful businesses and afflicts his skin with very painful sores that would not heal from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet.

This story clearly demonstrates that our exterior wrapper, the skin, is fragile and susceptible to many of life’s testings, trials and tribulations.  Hence, DERMATOLOGY was born to aid, assist and comfort the suffering, to help us pass through “the valley of the shadow of death” and most importantly to help restore health, hope and life itself.  See Job 42:10-17 and Psalms 103:1-6.  So, there you have it—a brief summary from this ancient text of the birth of DERMATOLOGY.

THIS HISTORY LESSON WILL SERVE TO NOTIFY MY PATIENTS THAT GOD IS NOT THROUGH WITH DR SMITH!  I am making a COMEBACK.  After a brief retirement from 32 years of fulltime DERMATOLOGY practice, I AM BACK.  I will soon restart my career practicing in Ft Gibson, OK with Northeastern Health System.  My new clinics will begin some time after Mothers Day.  PLEASE WAIT UNTIL THE FIRST WEEK OF APRIL TO CALL AND MAKE AN APPOINTMENT!  I will email and /or post on my website, www.smithderm.com, the new practice telephone and address in March or April.  STAY TUNED!!

Thank you reader for your loyalty and patience during this transition.  I am very excited about my new affiliation with Northeastern Health System.  These caring, compassionate and well organized people will make it a joy for my patients to be seen– and worth the 45 minute drive from Broken Arrow.

All the BEST and many healing BLESSINGS!!!
