What were the symptoms?
I had Lyme's about 6-7 yrs ago. 2 of those little tiny suckers were in the center of my back. The only place on my body that I couldn't see or touch them. The rash showed up a week or two later.

Yesterday we went on a landowner relations / elk scouting trip. Originally it was to be only my fellow hiker and I - but my three youngest (ages Georgia 9, Chad 11, and Jackie 13) piped in and said they wanted to come along. I was reluctant - since where we were going is quite snarly - but my wife gave me that look of `spend time with your kids' - so we brought them along. As we were leaving town I asked my youngest to pray for our trip - as I often do. As she prayed for our safety, etc. - she also prayed that we wouldn't get any ticks. I sat there thinking - `why doesn't she pray something that actually has some chance of happening' - as in my mind - the probability of five people coming home with NO ticks was zero. On no other trip this spring, even ones of short duration, I have I come back with none. And sometimes with a dozen. (And they picked 19 off my dog from Saturday's excursion.)

To my amazement - we came back with none.

This is the same youngest who - on a family vacation - tacked on the end of a prayer `and we would see a deer' ... Similarly I thought - why doesn't she pray for something that has some chance of happening - as it was MID-DAY SUMMER when she prayed it. We didn't drive a half a mile - and were still in town - and a doe walks out and crosses the street in front of us.

Moral of story - if you have children - get them praying for you and your family.

The older we get the more we `muck up' our prayers with our `maturity'.
