Remember our Fallen as you Enjoy your weekend!

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please hold our service men and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.

We also remember the families of our troops, and ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes and your peace, provision and strength to fill their lives.

May the members of our armed forces be filled with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.

WFMW- TMI...this one's for the ladies:)

So this is a Works for Me Wednesday tip that is for those of us of the female variety. But it has helped me so much that I couldn't help but share, even if its a little TMI! So if you want to know more scroll down below the picture.

So being pregnant comes with various issues and discomforts, one of them being itchiness and pH problems down south of the border. So when I felt a yeast infection starting about  month ago I immediately talked to my midwife about a natural way to solve this issue quickly and with out the typical, and might I add expensive, OTC treatments.

So step 1 was to use a clove of peeled garlic inserted into the vagina over night at the first sign of discomfort. For those of us who have regular yeast infections we know that tingle that is so alarming!
Magic! Two nights of garlic treatment and eating yogurt to get some of that ever so important pro biotic, problem gone!

Step 2, balancing my pH levels. I find that I am generally slightly itchy during this pregnancy, so I started to use a apple cider vinegar rinse. A couple cap fulls into a cup full of water, rinsing those lady parts morning and night. I found this to be especially helpful after intimate times.  

I highly recommend using this rinse (not douche, I do NOT recommend douching!) to help correct the pH balance and perhaps keep yeast infections at bay.

Its worked for me!!!

Just so you know...

I really dislike Texas weather sometimes. Aside from the 2-3 week period of absolute loveliness we have in spring...most of the time its HOT or its stormy!!

Between golf ball size hail, winds and funnel clouds...its been one heck of a day!
Thankfully most of the really nasty stuff seemed to skirt us! Thank you Jesus!

Go here to check out some pictures from around the area today--

We're going to see our midwife today. It always nice to get to hear the baby's heartbeat and confirm that all is going well. But today will be special because we are taking both the girls with us. Madi may not understand what is going on as she is only 3 but Cheyenne gets it and is excited to hear her little brother or sister's heartbeat.
Can't wait for my next appt, 4 weeks from now. That will be when we find out if its a boy or girl:)
Now I must go hang clothes out on the line. Its such a pretty time of year here in Texas. Not scorching yet, mid 80's and breezy. Perfect weather for drying laundry out on the line!
