REFLECTIONS – WHAT I HAVE LEARNED – THE BIG PICTURE ITEMS

I remember 50 years ago deciding to go for it! I set a goal to make straight A’s in all my classes. That was good for 7 years until I hit Medical school. Well I got a few B’s there! But you get the idea that I began to set goals and work hard to achieve them.

So I wanted to share what I have learned and experienced during 43 years in the medical field. This blog will cover the BIG PICTURE items. I wish to THANK my parents, Jack and Mary Smith, who set the early foundation stones in my life that led me to THE WAY (PROVERBS 22:6 and John 14:6) that allowed me to make the RIGHT decisions in life.

THREE BIG PICTURE ITEMS:

1. A new heart. Born again. Eternal life. Ezekiel 36:26 John 3:3 John 3:16
Yes Friends, if we accept JESUS into our heart—that deepest place within, He gives us a new heart and a new life, and we will live with Him forever! Even if we mess up, He will forgive and make our life forever new, if we ask Him!!

2. Life comes out of relationship, and death comes out of reason/logic. In other words being right is much less important than being loving. This, along with forgiveness, saved my marriage, and I am eternally grateful to God for this revelation. I have to practice being relational, living out of the Tree of Life, rather than the Tree of Knowledge. Genesis 2:8,9,16,17

3. Prepare for death well. We should prepare for the inevitable. Be ready and get rid of fear. The only way to do this is to do #1 above and get full assurance of Eternal Life when you die. Then death is a promotion. Something to look forward to after our work here is done.

THERE YOU HAVE IT!

#1 THE WAY to be born RIGHT.

#2 THE WAY to live RIGHT.

#3 THE WAY to die RIGHT.

I truly hope these REFLECTIONS will benefit you and bring you PEACE.

Don’t Bug Me!

Summer skin care concerns are dramatically different than cold weather problems! So, I will begin to discuss the common things that BUG us in hot weather. Let’s start with insect bites. Future blogs will cover sun protection, poison ivy and common skin infections.

How do you know it’s a bite that’s bugging you? There are several tips. The first clue is that you have several very similar small red round bumps present on your skin. These are usually clustered. They often have a central punctum or a tiny crust. They are always very itchy and are mostly on exposed skin.

How should I treat bug bites? Prescription topical corticosteroids turn off the itch in 24 hours, and the bite is gone in 48 hours. Lidex gel is my favorite, used twice daily on the bites. Also avoid heat, which makes anything itchy worse. Cooling menthol or other anti-itch lotions can give temporary relief too.

How should I prevent insect bites? Avoiding their habitat is the best policy! If you can’t do this, use clothing to cover up. Repellants are available, like “Off” spray, but there are eco-friendly ones that work well too—look in the Kid’s section of your department store. Finally, you may wish to try Thiamine, a B vitamin, taken orally every day can discourage the bugs from biting you.

COMING SOON: What can I do to protect from the powerful summer sun?

Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 is a very popular effective block from EPIONCE. It is great for everyday use, or can be used for outings. Use on face, neck and backs of hands and wrists is especially important to prevent aging changes as well as sunburn.

We will explore this subject in more depth in my next BLOG. You can call 866-374-6623 to order EPIONCE PRODUCTS. TELL THEM YOU FOLLOW DR SMITH, AND THEY WILL GIVE YOU FREE SHIPPING!

Blessings!
