Nothing Else Matters

I have never been so sick in all my life! While in Aruba for our daughter’s wedding, I contracted acute salmonella poisoning. The agonizing day and night in country, the unspeakable flight back to the USA, and the subsequent week in the hospital are now memories of horror that I shall NEVER forget.
I mention all that, (not for your sympathy – though I DO greatly appreciate all the prayers that ascended for my recovery), but rather, to point out ONE-SIMPLE-FACT.   And that fact is … when a person is so ill that he doesn’t care if he lives or dies – [& frankly, the latter looked rather appealing]. – – – But when a person is THAT sick, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS other than a clear, up-to-date relationship with Christ!
I’m asking God to help me remember in health, what I thought of so often in sickness.  NOTHING ELSE MATTERS … other than “knowing Christ, and Him crucified, resurrected, and alive in my heart!”
…. NOTHING! ….
