Itchy Palm

Good morning!

It’s the weirdest thing. I have recently noticed the palm of my hand intermittently itching after I have climbed into bed. What’s up with that? 

Have you noticed how nothing ever happens during normal business hours? In this case where you could seek counsel from a doctor. Not that it was worthy of a doctor’s inquiry. So I did the next best thing, I Googled it! 

My research revealed to me that itchy palms and soles of the feet are often related to food allergies. Or primary biliary cirrhosis. I’m pretty sure I don’t have that. I can’t even pronounce it, let alone say it fast three times. But the itching part matches my symptoms. Itchiness getting worse during warm seasons or during nighttime.  

There’s an old superstition that when your palms itch it means money. The problem is I haven’t paid attention to which palm it is. I’m sure it’s my left. I just coughed up over $ 6,000.00 for a new air conditioning unit.  Perhaps now it will stop. πŸ™‚  Itching of the left palm means money to be paid out, while an itching right palm is money coming in. To stop the left palm from itching, the superstition says to rub the palm on a piece of wood.

My take away?  I’m not superstitious.  But I think I’ll just take a very minimal amount of my money whether it’s been paid out or coming in and buy some Benadryl. To relieve the itching. It will at least make me sleep so well that I don’t notice the itching. And then there’s  the freshly cut tree stump in my backyard I can go rub my palm on just to be on the safe side. πŸ™‚ 

Let’s not be foolish and believe in superstition. And let’s use our money wisely. Let’s not scratch every itch that comes along so to speak. Let’s instead use our palms to offer to God in praise and prayer. Folded or raised. 

Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?                                     Proverbs 17 16

Love and laughter,
