Matt 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Godly principles are not magic. They are often quite elementary. Simplistic things that we overlook in search of something 'deep' or 'far-reaching'. We have been given the key to long life, good health, prosperity of the body, and the keys to weight loss. Unfortunately, sometimes they just seem too simple for us to really invest in. Eat the right foods, in the right portion, at the right times, each day...then repeat tomorrow. But we want to, I don't know...I think we 'say' we want to make it easier, but we really in truth, want to complicate it. Can I have this? Is it a whole food? Then NO. Can I have that? Did God make it? Then No. Simple answers but because we have lived so long in the corruption and bastardization of processed foods, real foods, don't even taste real. We don't know how delicious a strawberry is because we've never just savored it, without sugar or cream or whatever. We forgot how yummy chicken can be because we haven't eaten it without all the breading and oils that have been injected into it. These chemical processes that have been applied to our foods don't only add fat they also are proccessed, engineered, if you will, to make us 'crave' them and in mass quantities.
The purging and purifying process is not just for your cabinets. Purge your body. Get all the water in. Put only whole foods in. Limit or completely EXCLUDE the junk. You know the value, so now GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT!!
Back on Track:
Kudos to Olivia F., Judy W. (formerly Judy B - congratulations on the nuptuals) and Cris T. - It takes strength, courage, honor and perseverance to look in the mirror and admit when you have not done all you can and then to DO something about it. Realizing if you don't change IT, IT don't change. I love you ladies. Do the dern thang!!!
I don't know what to call it. My mother made it while I was here and it was good. Let's just call it 'turkey noodle soup'
1lb Turkey Legs (boiled and picked - take the bones out and keep the 'broth')
1 can no sodium diced tomatos
1 large can of chinese stir fry veggies (they were at family dollar)
1 cup (uncooked) Penne Pasta rice noodles
seasonings to taste
Cook the Turkey Legs by boiling them. Remove them one by one from the water and pull off the bone, returning the 'turkey meat' to the water. Add the tomatoes and veggies and simmer for about 10 mins. Then add the pasta cook until pasta is tender. Enjoy. You may add more broth (low sodium chicken broth) or water, if you like but it was great.
1 Protein C; 1 Veggie A; 1/2 Carb B (unless you deliberately spoon out penne, you barely get enough to be a serving).
Prayer: Help your kingdom children to live and operate in your kingdom principles. We know that you are the source of our treasure. WE believe that our success lies in you. There is nothing that can overtake us because we are created in your image. We are more than conquerors. Lord, we love you and we praise you and we magnify your name. In all the earth we sing your praises. You are worthy. Keep us covered. In Jesus name. Amen!
