Today marks the one year anniversary of Just Making Noise! As you all know, so much has happen since the starting of my blog. I have so much to share! So, again… I ask that you get comfortable in your chairs, couches, counter stools or whatever you are sitting on at the moment.
Thanks so much for letting us in on your life and giving us specific ways in which to pray for you and your family. I feel I have found a kindred spirit in you and your blog. Today alone I made 2 of your recipes (Rise-n -Shine Smoothie & Kefir Sourdough Pizza) – both were delish! Will be praying for you and your family as you make this transition to Honduras.
Here’s a section of Scripture that has encouraged me as of late: Phil 4:11-13 “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any & every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance & need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. “
Hang in there Mare- God will lead you to good things in your new place. I was always amazed at the “real food” resources you had in Costa Rica (I guess because of all the eco-tourism?) We are planning on moving our family to Rwanda in September. We have been there for 3 months at a time in the past, twice. I know my food options will be limited. They don’t even have whole wheat flour (except a strange porridge flour). And the rest you can imagine- no raw milk (unless we get a milk goat maybe), meat that comes from who-know-where & was fed who-knows-what, but we do the best we can & trust God with the rest! I am also amazed at the stuff you bring from the states: a huge jar of coconut oil? a glass lacto-fermenter? You put that in a suitcase? Our suitcases are always right on the edge of the wieght limit as it is 🙂 God bless you & thanks for being a blessing in my family’s health journey too!
OH, and happy blog-o-versary too! Forgot to say that! 🙂 WTG!

Hey Mare! It is great to hear from you again so soon – and with such good news. Sometimes life does seem too hard to manage, but you are very strong and have a beautiful family, and I know you will find what you need to get through it all, and find the silver lining while you are at it! 🙂
And I agree so much with you about the natural route working – having patience is the key. The body is an amazing self healer with the right tools and patience.
Congrats on your blogiversary and on being accepted into Real Food Media Network! Very exciting bloggy stuff. 🙂

How fun to have you join us at Real Food Media!
I don’t often have time to comment, but I read and love all your posts – they help me not to take for granted the little things every day and not to whine about my life. 🙂
Praying things become easier for you soon!

This is the first time I’ve commented on your blog. I’ve been a subscriber by email for a couple of months I think. I’m not sure what issues you were dealing with with Tabitha, but I definitely agree natural is better. I’m currently dealing with rather severe eczema for over a year. I’m just getting started with the GAPS diet. I’m encouraged by you living your faith for REAL and LOVE that you share that with your readers. I too am working on trusting God to give me the patience to deal with these skin issues and other health issues and managing the ins and outs of this new diet. Thank you for encouraging me also! I’ll pray for you and your family!

Hello Mare, Congratulations on your first year of blogging. I understand that moving to another country like Honduras is challenging that you want to give up. But even if I understand, I won’t really know exactly how you feel. But I’m glad you were encouraged by comments from friends and readers to continue. But your strength and courage helps me to move forward as well in life. Congratulations on your future projects such as Real Food Media. My prayers are with you and your family. God bless you and your life. I will write you soon.
I remember being in Honduras and learning lessons about eating. There were many lessons about eating what God provided and trusting him with my diabetes and my daughter’s gluten issues. It won’t be easy. Decisions about how to spent time and money are rarely as clear as we want them to be either. My prayers are with you and Jon as you raise two girls and start a ministry. We arrive in La Ceiba on July 3, though my father-in-law will be back before that, maybe in May.
