YHVH Rapha

He said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.” ex 15.26

Mother’s little helper

I was 17 years old still living with my mother and siblings. I was on my way to work, it was before noon. Mom was puking drunk. Orange juice and alcohol, a great breakfast. When I got home from work she was nasty mean, probably hung over and miserable.

She admitted that there were other times that she drank over the years after she and dad divorced. I don’t remember them, of course I wouldn’t, I was at school when she was getting drunk. But now I wonder, was that one reason she was so mean.

Did she drink while she was pregnant with us?  I shudder to think.  Might that explain our difficulties now?

That song about “mother’s little helper,” can’t stand it.
