I have actually been working on this for a while and just did not even realize it. It began when I started eliminating preservatives from our diet. I feel quite sure we haven't completely eliminated preservatives - but we have certainly tried. I can remember several years ago choosing not to eat foods with MSG - and then it was Kerry's rule of not allowing diet drinks in our home - and now I have tried to watch preservatives. That caused me to start making my own cream of soups and trying to add more produce and vegetables to our meals. I know I haven't been perfect - but I know it has made a positive difference for our family.
I looked at the "Dirty Dozen" of fruits & vegetables that should only be eaten from organic gardens. Here's the link: The Dirty Dozen. I joined a co-op to buy organic produce - I started buying beef from a farmer in Lubbock - Holy Cow Beef - and now I have a way to buy safe for the environment home care (cleaning & my health) products for my home. Perhaps the best part of Holy Cow Beef and the home care products is that they can be delivered to my door step.
Perhaps I am making progress toward using my time to best manage what God has given me. I know my health is better for choosing better for me foods and products - and my money is better spent when I purposefully shop and plan.
Be sure to visit my "Servant Living" page.....
Steward – a servant designated to manage the affairs of his master – God has blessed us each with gifts He chose for us to manage for His glory. We are to set priorities for the most efficient use of his gifts and to faithfully fulfill his responsibilities for the Master’s good.
It is also Baby Shower Brunch days too - love our decanters that my sister in law and I have!
Kerry's brother is going to be a Grandfather! Wow! This was the center piece for the Brunch - the wooden plaque that the lion is holding says A day with Grandchildren.... Priceless - I know LynDee & Kevin are beyond excited.
Always, May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14.
