Thirteen years ago this month I contracted Lyme disease, but I didn’t receive treatment until November that year, so I have Chronic Lyme disease. I wish no one else ever would get it. There are ways to prevent it.
When outdoors one should wear protective clothing, bug and tick spray, and keep hair away from leaves, foliage and grass. At the onset of a bite that looks as though it’s not an ordinary run of the mill spot, see a physician. For instance, if it’s unusually large or red, or if there’s anything that would make one suspect it could be a problem. If illness, such as chills and fever, appear about the same time as the bite, definitely see a physician.

Following the Leader
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us fixing our eyes on Jesus. Hebrews 12:2-3
A baton strikes a music stand. Absolute silence falls on the auditorium. All eyes fix on the five hundred voice choir—all of their eyes are fixed on their director.
He lifts his baton and the orchestra plays. A few measures later, he brings in the sopranos followed by the alto section, then the men. They have learned to read his hand gestures, large and small. When to hush. When to soar. When to accent. When to cut short. When to start. When to stop. Just as those singers follow their conductor, so also Christians follow the lead of their coonductor, Jesus Chrst.
