The Saga of Shingles

The view is so peaceful...even with the unfinished garden calling for help.

The tale of Shingles in Transylvania began on Facebook.  But since there is so much to share, I am moving the tale to my blog.  Applying natural apple cider vinegar slowed  down the Shingles’ attack before the rash came. With the first deep stabbing, burning pain in my back, I began applying lavender essential oil, tea tree essential oil, Nature’s Sunshine Silver Shield, & cortisone cream topically…also drank calming teas.

When I applied natural apple cider vinegar on a damp cloth to all the hurting places, it improved greatly. Now, when I am too tired, or allow myself to fret about things, the itching begins again. What do I have to worry about…my life is great! Well, great other than…

The 4th time the basement flooded, 3 sacks of furnace fuel turned to useless mush.

The garage and basement has flooded for the 4th time, the septic tank backed up in the 2 bathrooms, ittle congregation split, gardener didn’t finish digging vegetable beds but left for two weeks, you know…little challenges.  I miss Dan’s stabilizing presence.

Dan always handled things like that. In other words, God is letting me have a Crash Course in Learning Patience, and Trusting Him. and Giving My Burdens to the Lord. But first, I had to have Shingles (often a result of not being able to deal with heavy stress in our life).

Some will say, “Where is God when you need Him?”  Well, He is right where He has always been…WITH US, waiting for us to let Him deal with our problems, waiting for us to give Him our burdens, waiting for us to trust Him.  — Anne

Adolf & Reka's house with panels of foam insulation being put on. Later came the stucco on top of that, and then the soft, soothing yellow paint.

Cheerful geraniums on window ledge greet my friends.

Guszti and his construction crew wave from my Texas neighbors' house that is 1/2 completed. Yes, you heard right - I will soon have neighbors from Texas!

Later today I get to help Zsuzsa with 4 yr old Agoston and 3 mo old Anne. God is always GOOD!
