We’ve had some scary health incidents in my family during the last couple of years. During those times, I find myself praying, thinking good thoughts, looking for signs – even more than I usually do.
And then I take it to the next level. I start making “deals.” I try “bartering for health.”
“It’s a crazy kind of deal that implies I’ve got some sort of power and control, and that this higher power is just waiting, listening, and receptive to requests for such health-related barters.”
