You may or may not have heard by now that I burned my chin. I got a little careless blowing fire two saturdays ago. I've concluded that my two biggest mistakes were that I was doing it in daylight, and that I let the alcohol get/stay on my chin. As a result, I got closer to the flame than I knew, and the alcohol on my chin caught fire. I reacted bad and put my hands on my face, probably reacting to the rising heat. Whatever the case, I got what appeared to be second-degree burns. By now, it's been healing up pretty good, and I expect all the scabs to be gone by the weekend. This saturday will be two weeks since it happened. I would go into detail on how the burn looked/acted, but I'm not sure everyone's interested in all that. One thing, though - our bodies' ability to heal continues to impress me. I'm reminded of Psalm 139:14, where the psalmist wrote: "in a fear-inspiring way I am wonderfully made." Even so, I will definitely be making sure I never end up with a burned chin like that again.

It would've been nice if I was doing it at night tho:
