**It's is well with my soul**
Today I met my Aunt Darleen for the first time.
About a year ago I got an Ancestry DNA kit and when I sent it in all I was hoping for was to find out my exact heritage. Little did I know I would find family, not like 8th cousins but an actual Aunt and family that are directly related to me on my dad's side. Yep my dad has a sister he didn't know he had. Say whaaaat!?!?! So. Stinkin. Exciting. .
We have discovered that my grandpa, who passed away when my dad was Abbi's age, has a very big family! We had no idea. So amazing. All my life I have felt this huge tug on my heart for the south, no idea why until now. Our entire Pillow side resides in the SOUTH! My dad has always wanted more information on his dad and his family and we now have the gaps filled. My dad has a 98 year old aunt that has kept love letters between my great grandpa and gramma as well as pictures of my grandpa as a young boy. This 98year old aunt recalls the intense love my grandpa had for my dad and uncles and after his passing the family always wondered what happened to "the boys" and how to contact them. Well God is so so stinkin GOOD and has bridged all the gaps through one little website. Literally one of the best feelings ever. Not only does my dad have more information about his family, has a new bond with a sister who he says "could be his twin", but Darleen now knows where she came from and that she has FAMILY! She was adopted and has been searching for family for a very long time. The kicker...she only lives 45 minutes away from me ! The past few weeks have been so exciting learning about all of this and today was just the cherry on top! I am so grateful she reached out to me on #ancestry . Life is changed for the better and we're now going to need a bigger table for the holidays Welcome to the family Aunt Darleen you are a treasure and a blessing to all of us. Today was pure magic.

This verse here really sells me on the fact that we shouldn’t celebrate Halloween. First I want to clarify what it means to “pass through the fire”. Passing through the fire means to sell your soul to the devil, living a life of sin. The lord strictly prohibits any association with witches, warlocks or any one who conjures spells. People who spread lies of the future, like physics, or as the lord calls them “false prophets”. So if we are prohibited from these people, why should we dress up as them, or celebrate a holiday that glorifies them? - 5 hours ago

God has me in his watch and those that support me are standing by with ️ nothing else needs to be said... the Journey Continues... - 5 hours ago
Ok this is vile. But it’s important. We clean our teeth but the biggest cause of dental decay is the bacteria that is on our tongue. A copper tongue scraper will remove this slime and not only help the teeth and mouth but the whole immune system. Now I’m off to douche my sinuses. Getting rid of excess mucous from steaming and coconut oil pulling in the mouth and teeth are great ways to reduce mucous and protect. - 10 hours ago
After yesterday’s effort I can breathe more easily and my chest is clear. All my sinus mucous and inflammation has got to the nerves of my teeth and a recent filling is hurting. So I’ve been applying clove oil to my tooth and I’m just heating turmeric with coconut oil (very important to heat it and the curcumin is only effective when mixed with the oil and then I add milk. This is going to bring the swelling down. - 10 hours ago
Coffee tonics. I love the salt myself. Turmeric, coconut oil, fish oil, lime, probiotic, spirulina, egg yolk, or egg white. Proteins, fats, brain and gut optimisation and protection. - 2 days ago
The urban air pollution effects me and I had a chat with my doctor back in the U.K. Love GP at hand. Anyway, I’ve been having some fun making tonics. Some bitter my pal Jinny wants bitter medicine. Some sweet from honey and maca. Some salt. Espresso and salt, for me at least stops migraines. Allergies for me are solved by cortisone injection every 6 months. Or I use natural immune boosters natural antihistamine and anti inflammatories and expectorants. It’s been a tasty day and it’s helped my urban city reactions and helping my system with the good fight. So i spent 4 months researching plants and herbs for common ailments and range of symptoms. Then have to leave for my travels and learn that my plants would not be allowed through customs. Plus the weight and dilema over sealable packaging for 50 or so plants. Then I realised I could use powders and few ingredients and the potent power of essential oils. One day treatment and I will feel the difference - 2 days ago

Always keep a positive perspective being deeply rooted in your faith through life’s journeys. Constantly speak to God as if He’s your best friend. Pray over your next chapter & future. Be ready to experience growth within these seasonal changes. Be ready to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Always strive to reach your full potential so you can be a blessing onto others. - 2 days ago
