The lilacs are blooming. They are gorgeous! They are wonderful! I love them! Last night I stuck my nose into the blooms and breathed in its beautiful scent. Mmmmmm! Today I decided that breathing in lilac pollen may not be the best idea in the book. I did not sleep well last night. My muscles hurt, my back was achy, and my sinuses full. I'm really hoping it is not the lilacs that give me grief, but rather some other unscene foe floating through the air, something more obscure. Maybe even something not so unseen and obscure like cottonwood. Nevertheless, I will be somewhat more cautious when sniffing flowering shrubs. Lilacs smell pretty from a distance too so maybe I'll save the close-ups for pictures. I'm playing with the macro setting on my camera today and planning to buy some nasal spray to help combat my seasonal illness. (I'm fine really and don't mean to complain. I took a nice long nap today, inhanced by a little Benadryl. Documenting the problem here will serve to remind me when to buy that NasalCrom next year.)
I am a work in the hands of the Master Potter. I pray that His fingerprints are all over me as I walk through this life. This is my journey. Thank you, Jesus, for not giving up on me.
