Lymie lables

I don’t know if you have Lyme, or know someone WITH Lyme, or perhaps you struggle with a TOTALLY different chronic illness… OR you just like me & mine 🙂  but it’s all really still quite new to me… Before December of 2009 it certainly wasn’t on MY radar…   Since then… I have learned a whole LOT…

Lyme disease has lots of possible co-infections… That’s why many folks who HAVE Lyme call it Lyme & Co.  🙂  it’s rather a running joke… We are all trying to keep our sense of humor too..

Some people find it offensive that we would “identify ourselves as lymies”.. well.. we don’t really… We identify ourselves as Christ followers.. First and foremost… We are also patriots and loyal to our country, dispite the many things we see in it we disagree with.  But the fact of the matter is we DO have this disease.  It is NOT going away anytime soon…  We are choosing to FIGHT it with all we are.. and it is literally taking ALL we have.

All our strength

ALL our faith

ALL our hope

All our finances

All our days

All our time

So we feel, for THIS season at least.. we are Five Lymies & a Baby.. we hope… we pray, we won’t BE Five lymies and a preschooler ! 🙂 ha!

We hope… that it’s a season.. and that we are victorious in it…

    🙂 It is what we do in this culture isn’t it? 🙂 I am sorry for it too… I am learning so much from the Lord about that… About the “cultural things” we do that just… aren’t even kind, that aren’t Biblical at all…
    and how to break the mold…
    With so many diseases, HOW on earth would anyone even dream of labling most of us at all?? LOL 🙂
    you are LOVED!
