“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”
(Isaiah 60:1 NIV)
A warm, tingling sensation emerged on my upper lip. It had been a long time since I’d had one of those dreaded fever blisters. I quickly downed two Acyclovir tablets and a large glass of water. The white pills helped to calm the heated chemical reaction below the skin. Ice cubes applied to my lip’s surface helped to alleviate the pain.
