Silent Finger to the Sky and Stars- Digital Art by Tracey Grumbach

An instinctive taste teaches men to build their churches with spire steeples
which point as with a silent finger to the sky and stars.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Just as I have an obsession with barns, I also have an obsession for the architecture of churches. The subtle differences in details between each of them intrigues me. I am particularly fond of steeples and bell towers. One day I plan on making a collage of all the different barns I've photographed and separately, all the churches I've photographed. I think it will be cool to see them all together. I don't have any clue just how many different ones I've taken. Probably dozens!

I have my monthly doctor appointment today with my Lyme specialist. Except for last week, my pain levels have been a lot better while on this restricted diet, which is a plus. I am still dealing with ridiculous levels of exhaustion, but hopefully I can find answers to that at today's appointment. He will be presenting the results of my ALCAT blood test and helping me fine tune my diet so that I can avoid trigger foods for my system. Frankly, I am petrified that my digestive tract is so screwed up that all I'll be able to eat is lettuce and cucumbers. I will find out for sure today and let you know on tomorrow's blog. I will also find out the results of my liver function tests. I pray that my liver is holding up to the onslaught of antibiotics I am still on. I would appreciate any prayers for the doctor's wisdom and my patience as we move through this difficult process.

I found out late yesterday afternoon that Brenna needs to go in for emergency oral surgery to remove her wisdom teeth today. Please say a prayer for her as well. I hope the surgery goes smoothly and her recovery is swift. Poor thing got back from Canada Sunday night, had a emergency dentist appointment yesterday afternoon and surgery scheduled for 11:00 today. I am sure this is the home coming she was hoping for!

I'll see you here tomorrow with updates on my doctor visit and Brenna's surgery. Happy Tuesday, y'all.
