Celebrate Recovery is a Christ Centered ministry where people can find God’s healing and strength to face and move beyond their hurts, habits, or hang ups. This ministry is for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are affecting their own life or the lives of those around them. At CR you will find a community of people working their way along the road to recovery sharing their lives, experiences, hopes and fears with one another and finding God’s grace and forgiveness in solving their problems.

Queen Anne’s Lace by: Coy Domecq A common spring-through-summer sight along the highways and by ways of North Carolina and throughout the United States is the towering creamy white flower heads of the Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota). This plant was introduced by early European settlers and has become naturalized across the North American continent. In some states, the plant is considered an invasive weed. In popular literature, there is more space devoted to how to eradicate the plant rather than growing it. Queen Anne’s Lace is also known as bird’s nest and wild carrot. The Latin name nods to the fact that Queen Anne’s Lace is in the parsley/carrot family which she shares with the domesticated carrot, parsley, coriander and fennel. Lore has it that the plant’s name is associated with any one of a number of historical “Annes”, from Queen Anne of Britain and Queen Anne of Denmark, to Anne, the mother of Mary, grandmother of Jesus. The origin of the common names has reference to the flower head resembling a bird’s nest, the popular craft of tatting or lace making, and the red center of the flower symbolizing a drop of blood. The plant was once cultivated for its many uses. The European settlers used the plant as a sweetener. The root of Queen Anne’s Lace has a high sugar content, second only to the beet. The young taproots were prepared in soups, stews and as a tea. The seeds were used as a seasoning. The young flowers were sometimes eaten fresh and raw as food on the go. Nutritionally, the plant is high in Vitamin A and minerals. Botanically, the plant is classified as a biennial herb. The crushed leaves were utilized as an insect repellant (see skin sensitivity note below). The Queen Anne’s Lace flower has garnered a popular place in many floral bouquets. As is always the case when collecting wild foods, positive identification is essential. Queen Anne’s Lace bears a striking resemblance to highly poisonous wild hemlock, fool’s parsley and water hemlock; all in the parsley family (Apiaceae). A lesser ill effect associated with Queen Anne’s Lace is contact with the leaves can cause skin sensitivity to sunlight for some people.
