Everything thing we do is a choice. It’s not just the big decisions, it’s all the small ones that lead through life. Start today by being selective.
I’m not a picky eater but I’m very selective about what I eat. What goes into my body?
Real food. No fast food. I rarely eat outside my kitchen. There are no cans of food in my pantry.
I shop at three different grocery stores. Each store has certain items we enjoy. I love local Farmer’s Markets but I don’t allow time to go often enough. One thing I’m passionate about is farm fresh eggs.
I bought some eggs from the grocery store that would do until the market came around, or so I thought. When I began making brunch I knew there was no way those eggs were going into our bodies.
They are pale yellow with a firm yolk.
I remembered a local antique shop used to sell eggs from a nearby farm, so I called the shop and she had some eggs. Brunch was saved!
Here are farm fresh eggs. I love the colors.
Each breed of chicken will lay their own color egg. The ones that look white are actually a pale green from the Ameraucana, also known as Easter eggs.
Here is what they look like out of the shell.
I couldn’t capture good light, but they are gold in color. The yolk is so soft you can literally stir them without whisking. Complete happiness.
This is one area of our lives we have complete control over. What we put in our mouths.
I was on my way to an AA meeting yesterday, and stopped by to see Stephanie. She is my plant Guru. I’m not sure she realizes the magnificent healing she has brought to my life through these plants she encouraged me to bring home. It was time to buy my first one that would bloom. I spotted a pot that made me smile, and the plant we chose is big!
She told me it is a good plastic one, but it looked real!
On the way home, I stopped at a small Farmer’s Market.
There is something about people sitting in 100 degree heat, that deserve our attention. A young lady was sitting at a table filled with bottles of honey. We began talking, and she invited me to her church. I listened as she told me more.
What made my ears perk was a study they have on Wednesday nights. It’s by Beth Moore, entitled, “Believing God.” I did this study years ago, and it was enlightening.
Believing God is what I’ve been doing, but it would be nice to do the study again. She is going to text me a reminder, but I was standing there because of the label on her honey.
Aren’t we supposed to Bee Love? I believe so.
As I was walking away she said, “I am looking for a mentor! A Godly woman I can model my life after.” I didn’t respond, but Wednesday night I will be at that study. I hear you God.
As I was leaving Stephanie’s, she said the main thing people ask her is how to grow a Boston Fern. The thought intimidated me too, but they are huge now! I told her about mine, and she said, “If you can grow a Boston Fern, you are the bomb!” All I did was care. I hugged Stephanie and said, “You make my life more beautiful.” She exclaimed, “That made my day!” She helped give me my beautiful life back.
God knows when we are ready to bloom. Can you feel it?.
