Restoration

Although my area missed the big snow and ice storm which hit the country over the last couple of days, it’s still winter around here.  Last night I had to salt one of the entrances to our church.  Thank God for spreaders:)

Over the last several weeks, my prayer life has been focused on God’s ability to restore broken things. Sometimes in our busy-ness, we lose sight of just how broken the world really is.  Let me tell you, there are a lot of broken people out there.  When you get right to it, in reality we’re all broken in one way or the other. It’s been that way from the beginning.

Loneliness and Aloneness

Over the past several weeks, I’ve been talking to a lot of people about their feelings of loneliness.  In most people’s minds, when we think of someone being lonely, we assume they are single, widowed or divorced.  But married people can be lonely too.

The question to ask ourselves is how can we help?  What can we do to help people overcome their loneliness and feelings of aloneness? What can we do to help ourselves deal with loneliness and aloneness in our own lives?

Some insights on the answer to these questions can be found in the daily devotional, Grace In Every Season, written by Catherine Doherty.

Getting Proper Nutrition, Pt. 2

Several of my coworkers talked to me about my post yesterday.  They thought it would be nearly impossible to consistently eat nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day.  Hard, but not impossible.

Some raised the point about cost.  Yes, there is an additional cost to eating healthy. But what is the cost of not eating this way?  When you approach it like this, then I think you come to the realization that eating healthier is the way to go. The cost is worth it.
