Take Care of Your Lungs

When I was baking bread at a local church Tuesday one of the kids working around the building had a death-rattle cough. "Are you okay?" I asked. "It's a smokers cough, and I have a cold," he said. "Be careful," I said.
I noticed a prescription for Pro-Air on the kitchen counter with his name on it.
"I take this too. It will help, don't be afraid to use it," "Be careful with your lungs, you don't want to get pneumonia," I said. "Pneumonia is like drowning."
"I don't like to take drugs, because I believe God will heal me," he said.
"Well, as my actor friend David says,'God made the drugs.'"
