One day a while back, Nate and I were driving to church. All that afternoon I had been regaling him with all the things that were wrong, all the things I hated, and all the things that needed fixed. Before we got very far from the house Nate stopped me and asked, “Faith, are you happy?”
“I mean, relatively, so. Why?” I said, quickly realizing where this was going.
“Because I can fix a lot of these things for you, but that won’t matter if you don’t have a grateful heart.”
Boom. Mic drop.
I was instantly convicted of my complaining and repented right there.
Warm weather is upon us, my friends. And with it comes all the pollen, dust, weeds, and everyone’s favorite: seasonal allergies.
I remember a time when I was quite literally on 2 or 3 different allergy medicines at a time. They were prescribed by my very well-meaning and beloved family doctor. To be quite honest, they DID help me feel better. We did the best we knew how to at the time.
Fast forward several years, and this kid is on zero prescription meds and zero over the counter allergy pills. None. Zip. Zero. Zilch.
