|From my garden yesterday|
And the taste of homegrown food? Phenomenal!
"You're not just filling holes. You're feeding souls."
The goal of a meal is not simply to push a plate of food, or chemically-processed packaged food stuff, at our family. Whenever we present an offering of food to someone, we have the honor and privilege of giving them something that will nourish their body, grow their mind and encourage their soul.
Look carefully at my first photo. Do you see the slug? Love him! Do you know why? Because it means food that is growing in my yard is conducive to LIFE. Why would I want to put something in my body that has been so sprayed with chemicals that it kills all bugs and living organisms? If it's not good for them, really, how can it be good for our bodies?
Rejoice when you see signs of life and a thriving ecosystem in your garden.
Think twice today about what you eat and what you offer to others. A word of wisdom: Don't become bound or enslaved by a set of rules regarding food. Just use the good common sense God gives you to be able to decipher between food and non-food. And choose food.
"And God said, 'Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food." ~Genesis 1:29
"Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything." ~Genesis 9:3
