A MAGICAL POTION + A LITTLE APPRECIATION

Wednesday, January 22, 2014
So in case you're on the brink of sinus devastation - like me - here's a potion to guzzle and ward off that awful sickness. The weekend home, as much as it was so celebratory with my brother's homecoming, was rough. Olivia got sick. Again. And now I'm at the forefront of whatever she has, and it's compounding with an incredible lack of sleep. AKA I'm a bit of wreck :)

But this concoction has yet to let me down (I think it's working right now!!) I drink it every time I feel a sinus cold coming on, as well as when my body's aching for a good detox.

2 tsp. apple cider vinegar + 2 cups water + 2 drops lemon oil

(And the lemon oil is just a perk - the ACV and water alone do wonders). Let's cheer to good health - your apple cidegar vinegar potion plus mine? :)

Before I go take another nap, I want echo what I said like, three days ago, about hard times being good (mostly to remind myself). But first, I'll admit that trials can be awful. I cried some good tears last weekend as I felt overwhelmed about the last year-and-a-half - sooooo little sleep and so much change! - and "what's next." I find myself already clinging onto my Resolution #1...

And this thought. It's helping me immensely.

"In striving for some peace and understanding in...difficult matters, it is crucial to remember that we are living - and chose to live - in a fallen world where for divine purpose our pursuit of godliness will be tested and tried again and again. Of the greatest assurance in God's plan is that a Savior was promised, a Redeember, who through our faith in Him would lift us triumphantly over those tests and trials...It is only an appreciation of this divine love that will make our own lesser suffering first bearable, then understandable, and finally redemptive." | Jeffery R. Holland

So this go-round, I'm feeling peace because my trials are, truly, being shouldered with another. Things could be worse. This is mortal life, baby!!! And definitely - sooner than later - all will be well. He lives!
