PET scan results are tomorrow afternoon ... so we PRAY!!!
We have committed to Bless the Name of the Lord no matter what - but still! We want to see and to hear an EXCELLENT report that Rick will LIVE and not die!!!
The more research I do into health, the more concerned I get - for us, for our kids and our grandkids. As well as family and
friends and even strangers all around us.
We live in such a "food-oriented" society.
When did food become what we LIVE for???
When did we cross the line from "eating to live" to "living to eat"?????
When did food become the idol of our worship?
Oh, but you say - "I do NOT worship the idol of food!"
Perhaps some do not.
But for the most - we do.
Whether we want to admit it or not.
IDOL - any thing regarded with blind admiration and/or adoration excessively, or devotion. - something visible but without substance.
Now, with that definition in mind (not nice, huh?) -
Think about the last 30 minutes you watched TV.
What are the commercials about - mostly?
And think about the last magazine you picked up. How many ads were NOT about food? How many articles?
When you get up in the mornings - what is your first thought?
If you are bored - where do you find yourself? Too many times, I have found myself in the kitchen ... looking in the cabinets, the frig ...
If you are stressed?
There are a thousand "good reasons" to eat!!! How many "good reasons" are we assaulted with every day???
I am NOT against food! Goodness!
Anyone who sees me (all 250+ pounds of me) knows that I am not against food!
And anyone who has spent more than 5 minutes around me, or in my house - knows that I am not against food!
God has been dealing with me on all of this.
Food is to be what gives us the energy and fuel for our bodies so that we can live.
Live for HIM.
Food is to be enjoyed - the good and right foods in the good and right and just amounts.
Bring it all back into perspective ... Worship GOD.
Enjoy His blessings - including the gift of taste and the taste of good food.
So, now I am on a journey to better health and nutrition ... as well as education. Education to be passed to my children and
grandchildren, and to anyone else who will listen.
God has not put these illnesses and diseases and conditions on our bodies.
Our choices and decisions have!
When will we grow up and take responsibility???
When will we "admit it, quit it, and move on"???
O Lord! Help me now!!!
