*Sniff* AAHHHH….

Don’t you just love chamomile? Isn’t it marvelous how it grows everywhere? And it smells so…heavenly. There is an older lady from our former church who taught me how to crochet, and she is an encyclopedia of gardening and nature knowledge. When we walk through her woods, she can name every moss, grass, bloom, and weed. Mrs. Coverdell has told us about how her German family left Russia to have freedom in America. She said that they brought with them chamomile seeds, or kamile (kah-mee-lay) in the German/Russian dialect. She grows descendants of those very same European chamomile plants, and she says she will give us seeds too! Chamomile makes the best tea, and it’s so good on chilly winter days. (or when I have the flu) These pretty and  useful herbs are a beautiful reminder of how God wants His children to be healthy, and to take joy in in His glorious creation!
