Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Weekly Menu


I made it through the week without going to the store -- hurray for me! I'm sort of tired of thinking about food, which probably has more to do with my health than food, but I'm letting the kids make lots of decisions about food this week. Because of my health issues, I have had to be careful about what I've been eating these past few weeks. I see a urologist next week, but according to my GP, it's likely I'm dealing with interstitial cystitis, and will probably have to be careful about what I eat for the rest of my life. I am probably suppressing my feelings about the whole thing, but I refuse to sit and be sad that I may never be able to drink coffee, eat chocolate, enjoy a soda, have pizza (among lots of other things) without experiencing some pain. I think if I spend much time thinking about it, I'll end up turning into a big, sorry mess! In the meantime, I'll be making lots of meals that I can modify for myself, and embracing the foods that I can still enjoy. (If you, by some odd chance, are one of the other million people who have IC -- please speak up and tell me how you cope.)

Sorry to hear this! I don't know anything about it but I sure would like to pray it away from you if I could.
