10 Things I Hate About...The Flu

January 8, 2006

There’s an empty tissue box on the floor next to my bed, a half-filled bottle of NyQuil on the kitchen table, and two comforters piled bulkily on the couch. You guessed it, I’ve got the flu.

I’m pretty fearless when it comes to a regular cold, but the flu is a whole other story. Fever, chills, fatigue, nausea…and for an entire week! By day four, I’m ready to scream, “Enough already!” Worse than the physical symptoms, I have to keep my independent woman tendencies in check and depend on friends or family members to provide me with food or orange juice. Talk about real life lessons in humility.

I’ve been popping Vitamin C and Echinacea like an herb junkie for the past days and I do feel better, but I really can’t wait until the flu is over—for good.

Revelation 21:4 says, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Furthermore, Romans 8:18 says, “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”

Can you imagine never having a cold, the flu, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, AIDS, or any other ailment ever again? I’m sure my friends are looking forward to the day when those early morning phone calls requesting Tylenol from the local CVS end.

Seriously though, what are you looking forward to in heaven?

In heaven I'm looking forward to playing with all the animals I'm so resticted form playing with now:lions, bears, elephants, and tigers. This will be so amazing to me. Of course, though, I also can't wait for the pain free and worry free life as well.

No more disappointments. Sicknesses don't linger after they are cured or run their course. You don't think about them months or years down the line. So while I'm happy heaven will do away with sickness, I am far more happy that disappointments will be done away with too!
