Just a quick jot of a note about how this is a great blending herbal. How this fits into my life and soothes my stomach.

I have to take anti-seizure pills in the morning to keep my migraines in check. The pills help somewhat but on an empty stomach, they make me more nauseated.
Most of you know from reading my posts about holiday celebrations that I’m a Greek Orthodox Christian. Sunday mornings Greek Orthodox don’t eat anything (no tea or coffee either) before going to Church but we eat together when the church service is over (nice and friendly way to break the morning fast and get to know each other better).
Every week I used to get very sick and had to leave the service half way through because of nausea migraines.
One day, my Priest noticed and said, that would never do. Rules and customs were never meant for harm but to help people grow spiritually. Of course I could have something to eat and drink with my pills in the morning before Church. (The Bishop said Please eat something too.)
What a relief!
(I know I could have done what I wanted all along, but this is not the path I’ve chosen. Self indulgence is too easy.)

So this morning, I made a nice pot of this herbal blend with a pu-er nugget in it for my stomach and had a piece of toast. That’s all I need to get me through until noon. I’ll be doing great without any queezy feelings and the blend tastes wonderful.

I know I have to stock up on some more soon because this is easily going to be a Winter staple.

Your priest (and bishop) sound awesome.

I believe many religious customs began long before we had the complications as humans that we do now. Illness has evolved and therefore the faith does with it when necessary. You have a good Priest!

The Sabbath (or in this case the Lord’s day) were made for man, not man for the Sabbath. It is to make us look inward, and reach upward. Your heart is revealed in the attempt, and your need in the weakness. Be blessed.

I think hiding the things we believe in because we’re afraid of being politically correct has gone so far that we become mute. I wouldn’t be honest about my own story if I left out chunks that are important parts of my life. While I don’t believe in being pushy about politics, religion or most anything (even tea…ah hum…) I love the life I live in every way. If anyone was around during a Feast, you would understand and be invited for a great meal (and tea!).
