One of my neighbors upstairs is a young lady just starting out on her own in the world. It's obvious she doesn't make much money, just enough to get her by. But, she seems so alive, so naive about the life ahead of her, and so ready to face the world as a young woman.

Her mother visits her often, and often she makes sure her daughter has enough food to sustain her. In so doing, she brings an abundance of groceries that her daughter tells me, "I'll never eat all of it, and I'd hate for it to go to waste..." as she makes her way to Miss May May's door to see if she wants some of her abundance...

Today, she carried two bags of apples in her small and uncalloused hands. Her smile was as bright as the sunshine as she knocked on Miss May May's door.

There was no answer.

Returning to climb the stairs again I asked her, "What do you have?"

She said, "Apples...would you like them?"

I said, "Sure, I'll take them!"

She handed them to me and continued her climb back to her apartment.

I pared and sliced all of them and sealed them up and put them in the freezer for safekeeping. Maybe someday soon I'll make a cobbler. Maybe someday soon I'll share it with her.

And, I pray that young lady never loses her smile.

Onions in my socks

Hello, World!

Last night I was conversing in the comments about how onions have healing properties against colds and flus. My friend reminded me that things could be much worse. While I agree with her assessment that I could be experiencing something worse than my sickness, onions in my socks for 8 hours seems a lot less painful than feeling sick for 3 I decided to try it.

I went to the refrigerator and grabbed an onion, cut it, peeled it and quartered it. Then, I placed a quarter in 3 different rooms in a bowl. I halfed the last quarter and dropped them in my socks, pushing them until they got to the bottom of my feet. Then, I went to bed.

Four hours later, I woke up singing this song:

"I believe in God the Father! I believe in Christ the son! I believe in the Holy Spirit and giving us new life!

Furthermore....I could breathe. My nose wasn't stopped up. I wasn't coughing. I felt good. I went back to sleep.

I woke up still singing that song four hours later. No fever. I could still fill my sinuses overworking, but I could BREATHE! Once I got up and around, I coughed a little, but there was an AMAZING difference!

Onions in your socks. Not bad.

Yes, I showered before I went to the bank.

Have a blessed day!

Ezekiel 47:12
And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.”

Revelation 22:2
Through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
