Southwest Chicken Chowder- Shugary Sweets
I have figured out from sitting at home now a days and hearing the TV in the background why the topic health equals money.
Oh, not so much money in our pockets but in the vitamins, diets and low self esteem departments. Of course, if you think outside the box you can think of many other corporations who also benefit.
In two days I kept track of the commercials playing on an average work day, day and evening hours.
80% were involved with hidden words, meant to infiltrate our minds about how awful we look or how over weight we are. How we don’t have enough energy, or our children are not as normal as the kids down the block.
We aren’t intelligent enough to choose our own health care insurance. We over looked the other ones. Our hair is dull and listless.
Our teeth aren’t white enough. We have bags under our eyes. We are middle age and should be looking like we are twenty.
Is it not obvious why more psychology couches are filled to the brim? Why it takes so long to get a doctor’s appointment?
What about the huge boost in prices for medications and physician doctors visits?
When I was young, we did eat from the land more. We did play outside and got dirty without being concerned with environmental medical problems
We did eat fried chicken with the skin on and most often was fried in lard. We did drink whole milk. We did enjoy fresh fruit pies with ice cream.
We ate mashed potatoes with gravy and our families lived longer than we, who listening to commercials are dying younger.
Yes, things are different today, and I sometimes don’t like the words modern or convenient. Some things we can’t change and some things we can, like turning an ear to TV, or at least the commercials.
People say don’t eat with mouth open
Don’t place elbows on the table
This was part of my family fable.
Now I’m grown
And life has changed
My brain is fried and become deranged.
Don’t eat fat nor salt or carbs
Forget the sugar, forget the fried
Forget the creams, forget the pie.
What’s the fun of eating today
When greens and leans are the choice
I want to go back, eat and play with toys.

Perseverance in Prayer – In Touch – August 31, 2016 by
I have heard that illness comes from Satan . I have heard illness is genetic or environmental . I , in my small mind, believe we all will be removed from this earth by God in some way . Is sickness one way God calls us home?
Is this why sometimes we pray with so much persistent and yet a loved one dies anyways ?
I see so much death through MSA . Scientists work diligently for a cure. We know God is a miracle worker, power to perform any task; so why aren’t some of the prayers answered.
What is the answer to my question ? Illness from Satan or God’s way of taking us home?
Please give me your thoughts. I don’t think I am dying today. This is just something I have pondered on as I sit by helpless, watching friends lose loved ones.
Flourless Chocolate Cookies- Shugary Sweets
A child once asked why.
“Why, mommy why
Does Daddy make you cry”?
The mother cradled her baby girl
She hugged and squeezed her tight
The two cried together .
The little one gently
Wiped her mama’s eyes
The mommy smiled.
“I didn’t have a choice
There is no way out”.
The child jumped down from her lap.
Taking her mama’s hand
She guided both into her room
She said;”Kneel mommy”.
She placed her hand in hers
She followed with closed eyes
“Jesus can help you, just ask”.
