Currently I am keeping the following in my thoughts &  prayers:
-----All who battle mental illness. Those who deal with the side effects of the strong medicines that are given for mental "health." For advancements in this area of medicine! For areas of the country where there is little funding for mental health and people fend for themselves (on the streets).
-----I need to be in better physical shape and beat the symptoms of several thyroid problems. I dread Winter as I have to deal with Raynaud's Phenomenon and struggle to keep chronic fatigue away (I have to load up on Vitamin D because I do not get out as often as I want to on account of my issues with the cold). Right now I am having a surprising burst of energy for someone with Chronic Fatigue and would like to win the fight to retain that!
-----Someone I used to know that committed crime and is now incarcerated. I am hoping that they come forward with any truths that may help victims and that they decide to go down the path of rehabilitation. I think that in this situation it would be great if the victims could somehow see that rehabilitation was occurring.
-----Homeless friends that recently found shelter and are in an adjustment period. That good comes out of there temporary stay in a new place and opportunities for great beginnings come their way.
-----My feelings over some continued intellectual thefts. :-( For the changes I have decided to make in my life so that I can move on and not be so bothered. To keep the peace that I think I have come to about this!


This post is in no particular order. Prayer/thought requests just go to the top as I hear more about what is going on. If you can think of a way to help these people, PLEASE do so. This post will be second-from-the-top during the midst of an emergency (such as an Amber Alert).

Note: I would not advise linking to this will wind up with a broken link each time I have to change the post-dating to keep this a Vigil at the Top.

One of our next planned (homeschool) reads for Preschooler. The growth of an apple tree and a family of robins throughout the year. Pollination is summed up nicely. This books gives a basic idea of how to make an apple there is a recipe that I am excited about trying with the kids. I have very little experience with pie-making...I intend to fix that but have only myself and the internet to teach me.

-----Spiced Apple Pie
-----Almond and Apple Pie
-----Double Crust Apple Pie
