A Lesson from Sunburn - Part 1

July 7, 2015

 

It was a cold winter and finally the first nice warm day of summer was upon us. I decided to get the kids together and head to the pool. We played, laid out and enjoyed the warmth. We were only in the sun for about one and a half hours, but we had a great time and it felt so good to soak up some good old Vitamin D!

 

As I went inside to dry off, I stood in front of the mirror, and to my surprise...my milky white skin had unsuspectedly turned bright red like a lobster. I was shocked, and quickly treated it to make sure it did not hurt. 

 

The first day after the sunburn went by and I felt no pain. I was relieved!  The second day there was no pain either. I thought I had escaped.  As I woke up on third day I felt a little itch on my chest.  I scratched it and tried to go on with my day.  What I didn't expect was for that little itch to turn into the most annoying, demanding itch I have ever had.   I tried not to think about it, but the itch continued like waves of the ocean. It would come with a vengenance back and forth.  I would scratch it...to try and relieve it...but Wow... It got worse. Finally, I found myself  at work walking around the room frantically, scratching my chest and looking for anything that could sooth the itch. It was so bad I could not stay at work!  I was miserable.  I went home to try and find a solution.  It calmed down after I laid flat in a warm bath with Epson Salt. It took about 30 minutes...but it helped tremendously.  

 

What does sunburn have in common with the Armor of God? Stay tuned for Part 2...
