It's a Plot!

Friday, November 16, 2012

When it occurred to me that brown sugar - being less refined than white - had more magneium (the nutrient I recently started tracking) - and MOLASSES even MORE - I talked with my daughter Abi (AKA RAPTORMELON) about using either of these instead of white sugar in my coffee. We observed that these two healthier forms were more COSTLY than the white, and puzzled why it should be so, since they had to be processed less, so they should actually COST less. Then we observed that the better something was for you - less processed, organic - the more it costs. Why should this be so?
We concluded, it's a plot to get rid of us poor folks. Only the rich could afford to be healthy.

Sovereignty

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Daniel 4:17 says "... the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people." There has been so much furor over the recent - and previous - elections. But when "my" candidate doesn't make it, I am not dismayed. Nor do I think that God has not answered my prayers. Prov. 19:21 says, " Many are the plans in a personís heart, but it is the Lordís purpose that prevails." Do I trust Him for the outcome? YES! Okay, who's in office? Let's pray for him/her/them. Let's pray for all elected and appointed officials on every governmental level - national, statewide, county, local. Like Paul said in 1 Timothy 2:1-4 "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all peopleó for [the President] and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth."

  


More Tracking

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

My daughter Abi (aka Raptormelon) recently began tracking magnesium, so I thought I'd add that to my tracker as well. I've also been tracking sodium and potassium because I'm taking a medication for blood pressure. It is SO HARD to keep the sodium DOWN and the potassium UP. So now here's this other thing. WHAT has MAGNESIUM? Hurray for Saprkpeople - while sparking I read a blog about butternut squash - one of my favorite veggies - and IT IS HIGH IN MAGNESIUM! Hey, if I stock up at the market and we prep and freeze it, we probably won't need to get supplements!

  


To Walk or To Drive

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I live conveniently close to my workplace. In fact, when I first applied as a paraprofessional, I was given the choice between this school and another, closer to the lake, to which I'd have to drive. I purposely chose this for the convenience. It's only a half block, and provides a nice little stroll.

But the way my left knee has been misbehaving, and putting greater strain on my right hip, I was debating whether it might be prudent for me to drive. Thanks to NSAID's, exercises, and PRAYERS, the pain has subsided (although I snese it is just "on the lam" for a time).

So, I decided to walk. Carefully, not rushing (as if!) but - walking won out.

Just as well - gas is so expensive and walking doesn't pollute!

    Great your knee is better. Just listen to your body so you can keep it in good shape. You chose wisely!
