"Look to the birds of the air..."

Day 3 of new chemo....water tastes like a fish pond! No kidding, really yucky! Food tastes pretty bad also, even crackers are like cardboard ( and I usually can tolerate nuts, crackers and chips). We ate out tonight for John's birthday --still celebrating!-- and the french fries were standby in case of nausea.

So how am I going to gain weight if food is so terrible?
Tonight we are getting excited and making plans for the wedding, and it will be really nice, with the chef using our kitchen as well as our daughter's and the food out on the porches. The wedding is at 2:00 and the "dinner" will be about 4:00 so the time of day should be really pleasant, out in the yard.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important that clothes? Look to the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"
Matthew 6:25-27

This time of year makes me want to go camping again. The crisp mornings reminds me of our being in our tent and building a fire to cut the early morning chill, sitting there seeing the sun come up and planning the day hiking and eating picnics at the falls. Even if we never do these things again, the memories are there.
