I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

~Soak cucumbers in ice water for 15 minutes.
~Remove cucumbers from ice water.
~Toss together the cucumbers, & onion in a large bowl.
~Combine the vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, salt & pepper in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
~Bring to a boil, and pour over the cucumber & onions.
