I never thought I would be a fingerless gloves person, but last year I changed my mind.

Adelaide (to waitress): My mom has a migraine.
Waitress: I hope she feels better.
Adelaide (to Will): She will when she dies.

Adelaide's words were just the inspiration I needed for a Five Minute Friday post this week!
Today I am joining the Five Minute Friday writing crew at Kate Motaung's blog. We write for five minutes on the same writing prompt. This week the word is "when." Yesterday I needed to be in a very quiet house, so Will took...

When this little girl asked for a matching scarf, I couldn't turn down her request!
This fall a friend sent a yarn care package to me. I have had so much fun working on projects with the new yarn! One of the things I made was an infinity scarf using this pattern. Adelaide saw what I was making, and she asked...

Today I'm sharing about my favorite books from 2014 on the blog. 
I greatly enjoy reading on the days when I feel well enough. Sometimes brain fog flares up, and I have to read small books or light and easy books. At other times brain fog makes reading impossible. But even with bouts of bra...

On most days I don’t think about what has been taken away, but seeing pictures brought memories flooding back, and I felt the loss all over again. Just as tears started to fill my eyes, this song by Laura Story began to play on my CD player. It was just what I needed to hear.
Last week I was looking at pictures from my healthier days. They brought back wonderful memories of friends and ministry and a very active life in Alaska.   Along with the wonderful memories came a twinge of ...

Story
Tagline
Living with dysautonomia. Filled with hope. Depending on grace.
Introduction
I’m Rachel, a wife, a mother, and a sinner saved by grace. I like coffee, flowers, the color purple, and painted toenails. I have never reached my chocolate threshold seriously think I may not have one. I have dysautonomia; it’s a chronic invisible illness, and it makes life challenging. I am learning to take life one day at a time, to rely on Christ’s strength, and to rest in God’s grace. Despite the difficulties I face, I am very blessed. God has given me a loving family and blessings beyond what I deserve.
 
I am married to a wonderful man, Will, who faithfully cares for me every day. Being his wife, companion, and friend is such a gift! Will is in pastoral ministry. God has entrusted two precious children, William (9 years old) and Adelaide (5 years old), to our care. They brighten my days while simultaneously wearing me out! I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

Over the years my dysautonomia has continued to get worse, and daily life has become more and more challenging. Barring a miracle I will probably be disabled for the rest of my life. This is a great opportunity for me to learn to be content and trust the Lord! Even in the midst of suffering, God has a plan and a purpose. If living a life with a disabling form of dysautonomia will bring the most glory to God, then so be it. Suffering from dysautonomia for a few years on earth is a small sacrifice to make in light of all that Christ has done for me. It is worth following God and obeying Him at any cost.
 
I invite you to join me at my blog, Cranberry Tea Time, where I share about my life with dysautonomia and the hope and joy that I have despite the difficulties of living with a chronic illness.
