I have had a sinus infection and I finished the last of my antibiotic today, and it still doesn't look like my nose is clearing up. I absolutely do not want to do another round of antibiotics and I have taken so many Mucinex. I can definitely tell that I am better, however something has made me feel totally worn out with no energy at all. Last year I started w/ chronic sinus infections and this has been the worst one yet.
Do any of you suffer with this? I am open to any helpful suggestions. The Dr. has suggested allergy testing. What do you think? I need to get to feeling better soon. Let me hear what has worked for you. Hope you all have had a wonderful Memorial Day and looking forward to a great week! Jackie

Pretty flowers she brought home from the garden shop where she works. We just popped these into my metal basket w/ a little bright tissue and ended up with a cheery table centerpiece. They also ended up being part of my Mother's Day gift.
Of course we had chips and salsa!
Homemade Pico De Gallo.
Table for drinks and desserts.

Life gets busy, and we can let the busyness steal the opportunities for time spent together, time that can never be replaced. I encourage you to take the time. It won't be something you will ever regret. Have a blessed week! Jackie

- I can't solve our world's economic crisis.
- I can't solve our world's spiritual crisis.
- I can't make our world's leaders make right choices.
- I can't nominate the right person for the Supreme Court.
- I can't make people understand the value of a human life.
- I can't stop wars.
- I can't erase famine and poverty.
- I can't turn a world that seems upside down, right side up.
Here's what I can do.
- I can stand for righteousness.
- I can humble myself before God.
- I can ask for forgiveness.
- I can ask that God will be merciful to His children.
- I can call on the Sovereign Lord of the universe to change what I can't.
....and YOU can too! I just finished reading a letter from our Pastor with a reminder to wake up, pray for God's forgiveness, and pray for a generation that is growing up not knowing who God is, what it means to be a Christian, and understanding that there is only ONE way, and that is through Jesus Christ. Focus on the Family has also issued a request that we not have just a National Day of Prayer, but a National Year of Prayer. I believe God is challenging me to pray daily for our nation and the place we find ourselves today. Will you join me? I will try to post a reminder every week, to keep myself accountable to do this daily.
"If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by my name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:13-14
Please notice this is not talking to those that do not know the Lord, but those that belong to HIM. It is my prayer that you will be willing to join me daily. I know this has been a little heavy, but God calls us to obedience, and for me, this time obedience means sharing what He has put on my heart. Have a blessed weekend. Jackie

I was excited to come home and find a hidden package of shrimp that we had frozen a while back, and had all of the other ingredients for the LCB. It was delicious, especially after the chicken nuggets I had eaten at school today!
That's all for this week since I will be leaving Thursday afternoon heading to my daughters. She is planning a birthday dinner for her husband and we will be doing a lot of Mexican.
We both would appreciate your prayers. She will begin Remicade treatments on Tuesday, so I will be staying to go with her for the first treatment. Please pray that she responds well to the treatment. She hung in there for a long time not feeling well at all, and she is ready to start feeling healthy again.
I hope everyone has a blessed week, and hope to get in more than one post this week. Jackie
