 The Painting:  I took progressive shots of this painting. If you decide to offer for it and buy it, I will create a special collectors book to go with it.  Soft wide brush and Holbein Duo Oils.

The Thought:    Okay you are going to see raw intimate details.... have you ever heard the expression you are what you eat?  Here is what is in my refrigerator:

First shot inside my frig.  Three types of cheese from Whole Foods,  Cottage cheese (Lactose free) Celery, Olives, Carrots, butter, tortillas (Corn) Onions, etc

Second shot inside my frig.  This one is harder to see
Top shelf are eggs, Terry's buttermilk, two flavors of fat free yogart Stonyfield, Real
Lemonaide (also Terry's)
Second Shelf is lettuce, asparagus (fresh waiting to be cooked) Left over Carrots,
Cantaloupe, leftover casserole, a container of cut up fruits and melons, flour,
more yogart, shredded cheese...
In the drawers I didn't photograph are apple and pears to the right and in the left one, red potatoes and squash.

What I didn't shoot was the Christmas Candy... ugh. Why did I buy it? Total temptation.  Meanwhile yesterday,  I raided the frig most of the day eating olives, carrots and a cheese cube here and there. I baked a mid-size red potato for lunch and I had eggs for breakfast with fresh sourdough bread.

So how do I size up if I am what I eat?  Except for the two snagged York Mint Patties, I do pretty well.  I only drink water or fresh teas that I brew each morning. No sweet drinks or sodas.

If you are what you eat, you can definitely say this is true about prayer to God. You are what you pray ....if you are leaning toward self centered needs, your supplications out weigh your thanksgivings and your adoration.  Think about your personal intake and out take on God and prayer... you are what you pray.  Give Him praise, Give Him Thanks...confess your short comings and sins, and then go for the supplications and requests. AND don't just concentrate on your needs but the needs of those around you too.

I am sure you don't like it when a child whines at you all day asking for everything under the sun... most of us like to hear Thank you or Hey Mom  you are really special to think of that for me...
So I think I am what I eat and I am what I pray....

How about you?

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
