Healing bladder infections naturally.

Long time, no blog. Life has thrown us some curve balls over the past month and we are still adjusting, thankful and blessed, but adjusting. I haven't had much time for relationships, much less time to blog. I've been wanting to do a post for a while on how I have naturally cured urinary tract infections, so without further ado...

I grew up with bladder infections, had them chronically until 10 years old or so... I don't really remember when they stopped. I just remember how great it was to not get an antibiotic shot in my leg every night. I had infections since I was a baby, supposedly it was an inherited problem where the urine would reflux back into my ureters and kidneys. I even had surgery for the problem at 18 months old, but it didn't fix the infections. I was terrified to have a little girl because I was very traumatized and still deal with issues from being held down and catheterized many times as a toddler and young girl. I knew that I could not handle watchi…

A Divine Burden

"When you feel this burden, you might be frustrated, wondering why no one else cares as much as you do. The reason why you care and others don't could be because God has aimed it directly at you.

Who needs moving boxes??

Well, apparently not us. (Insert awkward laugh here.) This afternoon we received a call from the foster care ranch we applied at last month.

It has been a mix of emotions since... rejection, embarrassment, relief, excitement... to name a few. Sadly, this is the main thought running through my head right now, "Wow. People are really going to think we're idiots. We were so confident that this was going to happen, we cancelled our construction loan to build our dream house. How can I blog my way out of this one?" Thankfully, I don't have to. Because in the end, it doesn't matter what you think, no offense.

"Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ." Galatians 1:10
