Honey, Honey

Proverbs 24: 13
" Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. "


Agreed! Honey is good. The honey in this verse refers to wisdom in God. Wisdom is hope for your soul. Lord, may I grow in knowledge and love of You every day. Amen.

I am fortunate enough to live in a transitional suburban/rural area. I live in a suburb that is surrounded by farmland. That makes getting good fresh, local produce super easy.  At one of my favorite local farm stands, they sell local honey. Sooo good! I use honey in my tea, in some of my recipes (see Oats) and drizzle it on top of my yogurt. Yum. Honey isn't just good, it's good for you. There are health benefits to honey, especially local honey (because of local pollen).  Here are a few benefits that honey can bring to your family.

2. Can reduce allergy symptoms - Not only can it help suppress a cough, but it can help your body build up immunity to the pollen.
