The Top Left Side Of My Right Fourth Finger

I know, that's a strange title. But I've been very impressed these days about the importance of what we sometimes think are unimportant, or even useless, parts of our body. Let me tell you, the top left side of the right fourth finger is extremely important! Who would've thought that one little spot would be NEEDED for so many different things?! Like holding a pen, wringing out a rag or, yes, holding a cup...and that's why I burned that little spot.

I had heated up some milk in a new cup in the microwave. It is obviously made of some different material  because, unlike my other cups, this one got hot before the milk did! So when I picked up the cup...well, you guessed the rest of the story. I got a royal burn...

I won't go into the details of the healing process but my husband was kind enough to offer to knead the pizza dough for me last Saturday. You know...I might let him do that more often, he did a fine job. Tried to twirl it, too, but I think that might take some more practice. 

Not only have I been reminded to be more             
appreciative of certain people, but my right
fourth finger has also suddenly become a very
comely and honorable member of my body.
Thank You, Lord, for this blessing!

This experience has all been a wonderful reminder to me of these verses:

"Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness."
(I Corinthians 12: 22,23)
