"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

okay, this is not the way

to get your lips plumped! I took Aleve yesterday morning, I have taken it before, many times. But this time I developed hives and my lips swelled.

So after another trip to the emergency clinic, a steroid shot and prescriptions I was on my way...woke at 2:30 am. with more hives...took more Benadryl and had prescription for prednisone filled. It's working.

As I have aged, my fill lips have thinned a bit, have often wondered what they would looked liked plumped...not!!

As Randall says, "oh that's nasty"

Oh how I want to be in my home again!

I wonder if the stresses
of being away from home
and in temporary mode
contributed to your allergic reaction.
It's something I'm dealing with alot in my life...the root of allergies.
Stress seems to be the big undertow.
Peace to you, sweet Mary.
Peace and oodles of grace,
Jen
