     "Drats? Oh, I see," my mother laughed. "I'm sorry."
     I tried to respond with a "thank you", but was interupted by another hiccup. Mama laughed even harder.
     I have been plagued by hiccups since before I was born. That means I have had them for just over 20 years, and I'm only 19! Not only that, but I get them about twice a week. It gets really annoying.
     I'm often tempted to complain, but then I get a thought. It's a funny thought I know, but a thought none the less. Jesus got hiccups. Maybe not as often as I do, but He got them, and He didn't complain. That thought usually puts a smile on my face, and a prayer in my heart.
     "Thank You Lord for taking upon Yourself my infirmities."


  1. Oh, what a cool thought! I've had my share of hiccups too and I can relate.

    Suggestion: I had them really bad for a bit, and having fresh green smoothies helped. I've often heard it's a magnesium deficiency. (I rub on mag. oil too) Stocking up on magnesium in one way or the other does help.

  2. Green drinks work too. (Stinging nettle, alfalfa.. etc) :)

  3. Thanks ladies! I'll have to try that one of these days!
