Well, it just goes on and on.  God be with us.  As hard as it is sometimes, we just have to move on and look forward or we will sink in the depression of things we have no control over.  I just have to remind myself over and over that God knows and is still on the throne.

 I don’t know about those of you up north, but down here in Florida, it is HOT!  Not just some of the time, but every day.  Since Dennis doesn’t normally do the cooking, it is hard to get inspired to do serious “cooking”.  It is times like this that I rely even more on fresh fruits and vegetables.  I try to hit the farmer’s markets for the freshest produce available.  I have to say that Brownwood is one of my favorites.  Even with the heat, they have a good variety available, both organic and regular.   With these choices, I sometimes do a quick saute of a mixture of vegetables or sometimes just one.  We love stir fries and by the simple addition of a good protein and a side of brown rice or quinoa, dinner is done.  If we are grilling, I may throw my veggies right on the grill too.   Some fresh fruit makes a great finishing touch for the meal OR slices of fresh pineapple grilled and a light brush of pure maple syrup is really good.

 My point is simply that we can eat healthy, cooler and simple for these hot days.  Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, enjoy life, thank God and stay cool!  Bon appetite!

 Pray Unceasingly!

 In His light,



Life-giving Energy

The Daniel Plan

Health starts in the kitchen. The best thing we can do for our health is to focus on all the amazing foods that God has given us. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, nuts, seeds—all these he has graciously given to us. The Bible says, “How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you” (Psalm 31:19 NIV)

Food is information. It has the ability to change our genes. It can completely rearrange things, reverse conditions, and give us the vitality we were created to have. Once you start to enjoy real food, you’ll never want to settle for less.
