If you could see me, you might wonder about the reddish spots on my face. No, not acne at my age, I’ve made my annual visit to the dermatologist. The doctor asked if I cared if she used her freeze gun on me. I laughed and said, “Yes, I care!” It must have been a rhetorical question, because she zapped me anyway. I’m paying now for the years of sun damage done when I was young. It made me think of why God has all those warnings in Scripture against sin. Sin, like deep summer tans, may seem fun at the time, but sin has consequences. God hates sin because sin hurts his children! Though our loving, merciful God has forgiven us, we may still have to suffer the consequences of our sins.

I wasn’t a sun worshiper but still had my share of skin problems as I age. Thanks Sheila I really appreciate all your messages it really gets me thinking
Thanks, Anne. I’ve been having trouble receiving your musings but told Tammy about my problem. She’s checking into it. Praying for you and yours!
