160930 See You Wednesday
Free People
Despite the health issues, I'm going to go and see my daughter's commissioning. I'll be back on Wednesday, and will try to remember to post so that those who worry, don't.

So many people post what they eat that I thought I'd give an example of breakfast for me. I am changing my diet to reflect some of the latest research into lowering cholesterol and dropping body fat. When I visit with the cardiologist on Wednesday, I plan to request an exercise program, since what little walking I do seems to overtax me. I wonder if work is the problem here?

Diced all natural, free-range chicken cubes with grass-fed butter, essential oils, and weeds

Why weeds? I became a fan of "Merryweather's Foraging Texas" and decided to test his recommendations, (which come with good photography). Today's weed was Purslane, which I chopped and added raw to the cooked chicken. Then I added four drops of lime essential oil, one of ginger essential oil, and a little sea salt. It was quite tasty.

Because of allergies, intolerances, and more research, I have eliminated all grains from my diet, and have found nutritional alternatives for almost all the starches.

Tomorrow begins the class on the Way of Abundance and Power, which is a class on how to research the Bible. I am assisting, so in addition to my new full-time position, I will be putting in an extra twenty hours per week of Biblical instruction. Something has to go, and it looks like the Internet loses.

See you in September...

160806 Internet

Someone in this park is sucking all the bandwidth. I have been completely without Internet for two days, and it is starting to fail again now as we approach 5am. I'm thinking of getting a WiFi hotspot through my cell company. Then, I can have more private and reliable Internet. I cannot get anything that requires hard wiring, so only cell phone or satellite are available to me. We'll see how much it costs. The cost for satellite is outragous. 

160713 Joy vs. Happiness
Free People
Romans 15:13
13  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Romans 14:22
22  Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

We get joy from God. It's always there to be accessed at will. Joy bubbles up whenever I remember God and His promises.

Happiness is usually tied to circumstances. Generally, I'm not a happy person, because I hurt; I'm tired; politicians lie, and people believe them anyway.

After twelve hours of sleep, a gallon of water, and a teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt, I feel much better. Today, work was slow. Tomorrow will be harder. Also, our water supply became tainted with something awful tasting, so I bought water that was bottled in the next town. It tastes great. I bought it because my dad lives in that town, and his water is always good. Next time I visit, I'll just fill some water jugs for "free" and take them home.

Thanks to all who expressed well wishes.

Today, my page is in Russian. My words and your posts are still in English, but all the other words and choices are in Russian. Did I accidentally change my preferred language?

I know that a few Russian speakers have read my page. Some friended me, and lj tracked the others. I haven't seen any of them for about a year and half. :(

160705 Crowns
Free People
This morning, I studied crowns, specifically the crowns that God gives us. All one has to do to be born again is to believe, (Romans 10:9,10) Beyond the basic gift of holy spirit, a person must use his free will to gain perks. The crowns are some of the promised perks. The Bible doesn't say exactly what a "crown" is, but from the terminology, it must be something desirable. Here are the main verses involved:

1 Corinthians 9:25
25  And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
The corruptible crown refers to the ancient Greek Olympics. Winning athletes were given a decorative head dress.
1 Thessalonians 2:19
19  For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
The Roman crown of rejoicing was a much nicer version of our party hats. We get the heavenly version for speaking the Word to those who believe.
2 Timothy 4:8
8  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Just for loving the Return of Christ, we get another crown!
James 1:12
12  Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
For standing against the wiles of the Devil, God gives His people a crown. It must be important to stand.
1 Peter 5:3,4
3  Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
4  And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
Leaders who lead, rather than dictate, will receive a crown of glory. I wonder what THAT one is going to look like!

160702 Eating Without Chemicals
Free People

Have you ever tried to do this? When I grew up in the 1960s, my mother cooked all our meals from ingredients that came from the garden or the butcher. The one exception was the bread she baked. Even then, wheat was in the process of being altered. The point is that it was a lot easier to find chemical-free food into the 1970s. Today, you almost have to grow your own from Heirloom seeds, and raise your own meat.

Some call people like me hysterical hippies, but more and more people are noticing what is happening to our food. Older people may go ahead and buy ingredients, but most of the younger people I know buy pre-cut vegetables, boxed dinners, or pre-packaged sides. They don't know what food prep or real cooking is. In the town where I grew up, there was a Dairy Queen, a lunch counter at the pharmacy, and a restaurant down the road. Occasionally, one family set up a taco stand. Now, they have the big three: McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King. Denny's is by the highway, and a variety of other restaurants dot the area. The population of the town did not increase, but the options for eating out have.

None of these places serve chemical-free food. Why does this bother me? My daughter and I have ADHD. ADHD is aggravated by the chemicals in food, perfumes, and cleaners. As long as we stay away from chemicals, we feel sane. When one or both of us slip up and eat some processed food, or even go down the laundry isle at the grocery store, our brains turn up the static and we feel driven to anger. People have told me to control my mind. "It's just your imagination!" they say.

They don't know. It's like telling a person with a broken ankle to walk straight. The most frustrating, horrible part of it is that it looks like innocent food! I hate having to ask a host and hostess where they got the food they are serving me. They are giving me a gift, and I have to look right into the horse's mouth! Most of my friends automatically tell me what's in the food, but others think I am simply rude to ask. They should live inside this body for a day! for instance, I had a serving of fried chicken yesterday, so today all over my skin itches, and I'm a little testy from whatever spice combination was used. It's like my brain is itching, too.

If I get too far into it, I'll see every evil continually.

I'm related to a conspiracy theorist. She spends her time with me hysterically telling me things, and I spend my time calming her with God's Word. Before the end, some of us have a ticket out of here.

I am not a fan of the "Sweet Meteor of Death". I wish, however, that it were easier to buy good food.
