My late husband passed away on Valentine’s Day, 2011 for lack of $1000 (basically), the cost of a colonoscopy back then. For the past several years, the Affordable Care Act has paid for preventive medicine and tests like these, and I sincerely hope that people took advantage of that; it had to have saved lives. With the new administration, it probably won’t be long before the Act is repealed, and people who benefited from it will be back to fending for themselves, often times forgoing medical attention rather than have to come up with the exorbitant amount of money that healthcare now costs.
I don’t want to get into a political debate. My only purpose here is for everyone to take advantage of preventive tests before they are no longer feasibly available to the poor and middle class. I think healthcare should be a right, not a privilege, but that it was simply done badly. It needs to be fixed, but, more likely, the government will just do away with it completely.
Get a physical exam, bloodwork, mammogram, colonoscopy, etc. now. Don’t wait! If you wait, it could cost you greatly. See my post from several years back, about the cost of not getting tested. Click here.

I got really behind on my daily reading, but fortunately, this past week, I was moved to read and get really, really close to catching up. I was going to have a catch-up week, but wasn't sure if those of you who are reading this would need that, so I'm just going to plow ahead. If you get behind, don't give up; this isn't a race, or an 'all or nothing' task.
For me, I need to plan and have deadlines, (even though I get really stressed when I have a deadline), and so this keeps me on track. I had gotten to where I was reading one chapter a day, along with commentary, and didn't feel like I was moving forward, so having this plan is really helpful, I believe. I hope it is equally helpful for you. Have a blessed week.

Acts 17:26-27 (NIV)
From one man he made all the nations,
that they should inhabit the whole earth;
and he marked out their appointed times in history
and the boundaries of their lands.
God did this so that they would seek him
and perhaps reach out for him
and find him,
though he is not far from any one of us.

Isaiah 45:22-23 (NIV)
“Turn to me and be saved,
all you ends of the earth;
for I am God, and there is no other.
By myself I have sworn,
my mouth has uttered in all integrity
a word that will not be revoked:
Before me every knee will bow;
by me every tongue will swear."
I hope you've been enjoying the bible verses so far. This one begins a series about seeking God.

Isaiah 40:28-29 (NIV)
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
