God may not have had such lofty a purpose for me as I once supposed He did, nor so elevated a place among my fellow humans that I should complain if my accomplishments weren't as grand as I figured they should have been.
Perhaps my purpose was simply to plug up a hole or prop up a pillar at such a time as it was needed. If that's it, I am content that I was there when God required my hands or even, just that one finger!.

One of the hazards of taking a youth group on an outing to the lake is the risk of kids contracting swimmer's ear. Here's a simple solution to help prevent it that is inexpensive and easy to use.
Simply bring along dropper bottles of a homemade solution of Boric Acid and isopropyl alcohol. You can get the bottles and the ingredients at any pharmacy. You can make it up yourself and it really does work.
Two or three drops in each ear worked quite well. The boric acid creates the proper pH balance in the ears to prevent certain germs and fungi from growing.
