Worth.

Christian Americans-

Be thankful for the country you live in.

Be thankful that you can follow your convictions whatever they are.

There were people who cared enough for you that died and still die for your freedoms whether you believe in war or not.

Be thankful for the freedoms we have.

I’m not saying put your country before God, but think about it.

There are people who risk their lives to be Christians in their country and we bellyache when someone gives us the finger for being Christians.

You are blessed to live in such a country as this, no matter how terrible you deem it to be.

Something has been on my mind today, when is something not?

What is our culture’s view of food?

Fast food.

Comfort food.

Have it your way and have it now.

Eat great, even late.

Gluttony is really not looked at as a sin anymore. It is now something to laugh at, make a joke of. Cartoons of overweight goobs come to mind.

What did God intend food for?

Pleasure?

Fulfilling a lust?

What about as fuel for the body? Sure, I like food that tastes good, who doesn’t? But when does it become a sin?

Our American culture has their traditional mealtimes backwards. A small breakfast, or none at all, a bigger lunch and a huge grandiose dinner with (sometimes several choices of) dessert. Then, when bursting at the seams, make sure there are no crumbs on our plate or the surrounding area, we pry ourselves away from the table and roll ourselves to our next activity thinking of our next meal. That may sound a bit dramatic, but hey, have you seen the health charts and statistics? I can’t make this up! 😉

For normal people with a normal schedule, our meal times should be as follows. A large breakfast, to get our metabolism woke up and running, a smaller lunch and perhaps little meals to help us get through the day, then at dinner we have the smallest meal of all. We don’t need a big meal, a large amount of it will just be empty calories because our day is mostly over. Eat like a king at breakfast, a prince at lunch and a pauper at dinner.

Holidays are closely related with food. These should be the times when we can allow ourselves to feast. Not every dag’gone meal and snack in between!

Could we really survive on more plain meals? Could we learn to eat what our bodies are actually craving and not just what we are in the mood for? Actually go without a dessert? Or dare I say serve fruit in it’s place? Well, I don’t know about you but this little chick has had enough of the disgusting attitude of our culture towards food. Food is fuel. Who’s with me? Bring on the wheat germ.

There are some things that really make my blood boil…

There was an earthquake along the Atlantic coast today just before 2 P.M., our time.

How many more warnings does America need?!

Wake up! Don’t bury your head in the sand. Think about the path that our country is on.

Think about it.

Pray and prepare.

The Other Side.

The Other Side and the differences between those who care and those that are…well, you’ll see.

Now that I have been on the other side of marriage for a few months, I have come across two questions that I will never ask newly weds again.

“Are you happy/Are you fighting yet?”

“Are you pregnant?”

These can be extremely touchy subjects for people. Disagreements with spouses and pregnancy are personal. In fact, I can’t think of too many other things that could be more personal. I wasn’t even married a few weeks when someone I knew smirked at me and asked “So. Are you expecting yet?” How insensitive.

If you are one of my friends, this post isn’t about you. So, don’t worry. Please, keep reading. The topic of this post was spurred by something that happened to me about a month ago.

I’ll tell you about it.

Someone (upon the first time meeting them) bulldozed me with these questions. I found it invasive. I didn’t even know this person.”Oh, so you guys aren’t fighting yet…You’re still happy…yadda,yadda.” I was hoping my short yet polite reaction and facial expression would deter more questions, but to no avail they carried on. They asked if I was pregnant, I told them “No.” while looking down at my stomach which is unfortunately protruding again due to my eating habits. Then to top it off they off-handedly replied with a smile “Oh, well, you’re still happy then.” What? Are you kidding me? I would love to have a baby right now. I was offended. After the matter, I was told that people ask that because they care. Puh-lease. Just because strangers “care” doesn’t change the fact that I was offended.

I do have friends that I talk to about those kinds of things, they don’t pry, they do it because they want to help and they care about me. In fact, one of my friends that I ran into this weekend advised me to starting taking fish oil and folic acid because it is good for brain development. And they told me because they care!

There is a difference between nosey and caring. And believe me I can tell the difference between friends who genuinely care and people who make your business theirs too.

The point of this post, please think twice before asking questions, especially if you have never met the person!
