Hot tea with a slice of lemon does wonders for an ill body,but you must drink it from a beautiful ,vintage tea cup in order for it to work :)
|Amish Friendship Bread|
I had some bread starter shared with me and it was on the tenth day after I received it ,that I was to separate the starter to be shared with three other friends,then bake the bread from the remainder....that day fell on the day I was just starting to feel bad, but alas..I baked my bread! Its more of a sweet cake like bread,and I think the next go around ...I will omit some of the sugar and make it less sweet. The mix makes the two loafs so if you can't use two...you have one to share, which I did! While I have been sick,I have been breaking a piece off on and then and having it with my tea :) Its quite tasty!
I have been visiting blogs and my heart is breaking because so many are already at the very first of this new year facing some very tough situation in their lives....death of loved ones,cancer,other illness as well...Well dear souls while ... God did not promise us we would not face trials ....he did promise he would never leave us,nor forsake us....he is with us.....so please,be encouraged today.....we are ever in his care.
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. James 1:2-3 NLT
No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening--it's painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. Hebrews 12:11 NLT
Do I dare share this picture ...while in my sad ,sick state? Yes,I do because.... I wish you to know that,though we suffer we can smile,because we do not bare our burdens alone.....and while I feel my suffering today is but nothing compared to what some of you are facing...I have faced great trials in the past...some I thought would sure be the death of me,and yet I lived,and was ,but stronger for it... in the end (and there will be an end). I pray you too will find peace,strength,and endurance through whatever trial you may be facing ....and know for certain...that this too shall pass! Blessings dear friends...you are in my prayers!
