Colds, Coughs, and the Flu

Every winter, it is quite normal for me to get a cold that develops into a persistent cough, lasting several weeks, or even months. My stomach muscles would be sore from coughing by the time it was over. It often interfered with my work as a principal and elder, because they require a lot of public speaking.

In the last two years, since I have had ALS, I have not had a cough, cold, nor the flu. God has been taking care of me. Having a cold along with the ALS would be very difficult, if not fatal. My wife, children, grandchildren, and caregivers have all had their turns, but not me. God has been a fiery wall around me. Praise and glory be to Him.
