“The list of health problems I think it would very hard to live with is SO much longer than the list of foods I previously thought I couldn’t live without,” Merrill Alley.

small and simple miracle
With the drier weather, grass around here is not in the flowering stage anymore. My allergies are calming down, allowing me to spend more time outside. At first I was frustrated that our mowers were down for so long. We had worked so diligently to get this place in good shape. Because we couldn't mow, the grass kept growing and screaming, 'slackers.' Now I know it was one of God's tender mercies toward me. If the mowers had been working, I would have felt obligated to mow and consequently have even more difficulty breathing and sleeping. Miracles aren't always found in grandiose happenings. Small and simple 'coincidences' denote there is a God, who knows and helps His children.
There are no coincidences for believers. My Heavenly Father and My Savior know and care about me in a personal, day to day way.
