Thankful Thursday

Fresh foods!
I am so glad that I pushed through my exhaustion yesterday and followed my path to the Whole Foods Store. Where I purchased organic eggs, and baby portabella mushrooms, tomatoes and green onions. We had Cara Cara (blood) oranges yesterday and the children had fresh strawberries after school. I have been living off my freezer and pantry for a month. I so missed healthy fresh foods. I am so thankful that I stopped and made this a priority.
In my exhaustion yesterday I became easy target for anger and frustrations.
Never get too tired to hungry or too lonely.
Well I really did myself all three. Beloved got the hot wind of it as I exhaled all over him my thoughts of all the injustices. Way, Way too tired!
Working so hard on this house and packing up our belongings has been a terrific amount of hard physical labor. I My strength is a vital part of accomplishing all the tasks that lay before me. Caring for my nutritional needs is important to do. I may even walk today after my visitor comes and leaves.
I had the idea of the children doing a lemon Aide stand during my yard sale so I have decided to postpone it a week.

Scrambled Eggs
Slice mushroom then dice.
Green onion Sliced very thin.
Slice bell pepper thin then dice it.

Heat pan first, then add a little olive oil
When oil is hot add vegetables and sweat them a minute or so.
Add two range free, organic large brown eggs
Using a chop stick (easy to wash) break yolks and stir.
The hot pan will cause the eggs to cook fast do not walk away.
When shine is dulled they are done.

The fresh strawberries sound so good. We been having canned fruit for the last month. So glad to be getting to the grocery store on Saturday.

I think sometimes we just need to take a step back - breathe in and exhale before we continue with the work that is set before us.
Great that you were able to go and get fresh fruit and veggies :)
Your scrambled eggs sound yummy :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week - despite your frustrations.

Blessings to you and your precious family.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
