"So I tell you, don't worry about everyday life - what you will eat, drink
and wear. Doesn't life consist of more than food and clothing?...... So don't
worry about having enough food or drink or clothing.... Your heavenly Father
already knows all your needs and He will give you all you need day to day if you
live for Him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern." (NLT, Matt 6:25, 31,32b,33)

More Food Problems... again
So this evening we did leftovers... all our company left :( And so we decided to take it easy, go on a family bike ride and enjoy our evening with no one stuck in the kitchen :)
So the kids wanted the leftover pasta and sauce from dinner last night.... my pasta lovers;)
They all ate pretty well but Christopher started acting fussy toward the end and we looked at his face.... sure he has some sauce on it. But clearly underneath the sauce was the "red face". And he had itched his eye and so he said he was fussy because his eye hurt...
Hmmm..... tomatoes. Makes sense... fruit with seeds. But it was canned sauce, no cheese and obviously had to be cooked and processed!
But this little man LOVES tomatoes!! He will lick "check up" (AKA ketchup) out of the little cups at Wendys!! You would be amazed at his love for salsa.... LOVES it... will eat it with just a spoon!!
We have a friend who has a pretty serious tomato allergy and the previous pastor at our church had severe allergies to pitted fruits.... so I know these types of allergies exist!! But all in one little guy??? Especially one that is soo happy-go-lucky!!
I've been motivated before to find another allergist or get to a center that is doing allergy research. We actually have a center less than 3 hours away.... might be worth it for us to take a trip and get the answers! Especially if it's just a couple times a year!
Anyway, it's just hard to take in right now. It's overwhelming to think of all the different foods this guy might have issues with.... but I have to be careful not to get overwhelmed when I really don't know what is going on!!
BTW... We did have a good time with our company!! Thanks guys for coming to visit. This afternoon we went to an Airport Open House and saw tons of airplanes and firetrucks. I did get some fun pics of our adventurous afternoon...so maybe I'll be able to share them soon:)
