A bit of my story...

I've had Lyme disease for 4 years now. On one hand, my life has changed so much for the better/healthier (something about all things working for good, ya know), but on the other hand, I feel like I have missed about half of my own life the last 4 years. I've seen so many improvements as I've changed my diet and lifestyle and taken all my "natural medicine". But yet I have not gain victory over this invader. My stuggles include fatigue, pain (like last week I couldn't walk on one toe for a day), and occassionally a muddled brain or wacky emotions.

But I was reminded the other day that God can heal my soul DAILY. You see, I believe He can heal my body--either slowly or quickly. But he can heal the hurt of the struggle today. I don't have to carry that around. I'm so thankful.

Today, I'm having a really good day. If only all days could be like this! I feel almost normal. And I'm fighting to see that one day they will!!! But today I'm just thankful for today. I'm thankful for the chance to share with others how miraculous the food God made for us is. I'm thankful I better understand how to care for my body and how to teach this to my children.

What a great day--and I thought I didn't like Halloween! No fear and no candy at our house, but this is a great day!

You do not know me but I am fighting Lyme diseaese with a 3 yr old and a 4.5 yr old that we are doing Sonlight preschool with. I totally understand how you feel about the ups and downs and what a roller coaster it is but Praise the Lord that with Him we can be steady as He is our rock. Be still and know that I am God.

I have always eaten well but found that detoxing helps immensely. I think it is crucial.

I will be praying for you.
