Each day in our online
daily devotionals we have a question and ask you to TALK BACK! You do
and your answers are a great source of encouragement to others who live
with chronic illnesses. It's nice to know we are not alone.
What is your favorite part of Spring?
. . .wonderful
smells, new growth, birds singing and all the details that God has included
in the lines of every flower and leaf. Trisha Lewis, Lincoln, Nebraska,
(Fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety
Chronic sleep disorder)
. . . my
flower and herb garden. I love the sight and smell of lilacs, and iris
blooming. My husband does the heavy work and our grandchildren compete
for the opportunity to help clean out the flower beds. During all of
that work, the pepperment, basil, and sage get stepped on in places
and the wonderful aroma fills the air. The old-fashioned lilac, heavy
with blooms, lends its sweet fragrance to the gentle breeze. Cheery
sweet voices of children and the birds singing.. I can't think of a
better way to spend a spring day. Linda, Millersburg, Pennsylvania,
(pernicious anemia, celiac disease and arthritis)
. . . seeing
the new life in the nature reserve nearby. We see hundreds of baby ducklings
following their moms thru the waterways and the lilypads. We see geese
flying in formation, eagles, hawks, cranes, and one of my favorites;
100's of baby turtles sunning themselves on old rotten logs. The world
greens up, a breeze blows, and I see all kinds of exciting new life!
When we need a break from busy parsonage life, my husband and I pack
a lunch and hot tea, bring our birding binoculars, and head to one of
the reserves nearby to watch the marshlands or forests come to life.
It always renews my spirit, and excites my heart! Sandy Platt, Winslow,
Indiana (Fibromyalgia, Sjogren's, Mitral Valve Prolapse, Neuropathy
in my feet, Degenerative disc, MPS, and etc. But God is good all the
. . . viewing
the beautiful flowering trees and also the other spring flowers that
are bursting forth in a beautiful array of colors. The view outside
right now is breathtaking! Nancy M. Wilcox, Concord, NC (rheumatoid
