Good morning, Father!
Thank you for the last several days of concentrating on my health, and thank you for the prompting to start a new deck on healthy seasonings
this morning already — how fun! In the days before Thanksgiving, I started to be aware of how much “garbage food” I was consuming. If I brought home something sweet or yummy, I could not make it LAST like I used to. It reminded me of how I felt when I was addicted to alcohol — just couldn’t leave it alone until it was GONE. Thanksgiving morning, I was in some weird funk, clinging tight to my faithful Shepherd, and letting people know that I would NOT be joining them for the day, that I was withdrawing to be alone with my Savior, and sort some things out. Three days later, and I am free of most of the withdrawal symptoms already, having made my way through the headaches and the hunger pangs. My body is already feeling better, and I am so very grateful for the fresh start! For only 3 days I have eaten much less in total, and eaten almost exclusively vegetables and fruit… with just a bit of no-sugar seed crackers and one slice of Ezekiel bread, and a tiny bit of nuts and almond butter. And I ALREADY feel better — how encouraging! And our faithful Shepherd has provided so much encouragement for me to continue… from peaceful scripture reading time, to sooooooooo much learned about healthy eating, even beyond what I have learned in years past… AND on Amazon I was able to get a $99 Instant Pot
for only $35 due to sales and an Amazon Prime discount “coupon” I had. That not only gives me motivation, but also the means to start cooking healthier meals, as I have been limited by having only a tiny microwave and tiny toaster oven to cook with — NO oven or stovetop (we have them, but they use propane and in this old camper, we don’t trust the gas lines and also don’t want to depend on refilling propane tanks!). WOOT! THANK YOU, Father, for your awesome provision!!
