It would seem that rabbits rule my world at present.

Then, a FABULOUS thing occurred! A dear, sweet friend came for a visit and brought me THIS!!!! An AMAZING knitted doily absolutely bursting with ACORNS!!! I LOVE acorns. She knows this and said that as the doily was taking shape and she saw the giant acorns it became clear that THIS doily was to belong to me! WOW.
My family has Lyme Disease. Some people don't believe in Lyme Disease. Apparently they've never had it. Some think you should just 'get over it'. Wish we could. Mainly what we do is soldier on each day, working through whatever the day brings.
Right now we're on an Anti-Inflammatory Lyme Diet for a week. Mainly that means you can only eat certain fruits, veggies & fish. Which would be easier if it were summer and all that stuff was in season. And if I actually LIKED fish. Not to mention I'm hungry for a big fat steak or maybe a bagel.
Our salad last night was made quite delicious by a very simple Raspberry Vinaigrette (I had to look up the spelling of that one!). 1 cup raspberries (frozen), 1 cup olive oil, 2 Tblsp. honey and 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar. Blend it up til smooth and that salad was WAY easier to eat!!!
Here's what's on my mind today:
Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. —1 Peter 5:6-7
Sometimes our lives can seem overloaded with struggles, heartaches & fears. We can even feel that we are in danger of going under. In those times, however, it is reassuring to know that we have a heavenly Father who stands ready to help us carry every load. Though the testings of life may feel like a burden too heavy to bear, we can have full assurance that our heavenly Father loves us deeply and knows our load limits. Whatever we face, He will help us to bear it. Trust in Him. (excerpted & revised from Our Daily Bread)
