 A Sacred Gift

Look in the mirror. Your body is a sacred gift... your physical body. The design of the human body is incredible. It is a complex chemical and electrical process in motion... a pure miracle.  God created this body. God created your body.

Appearance is nothing compared to divine perfection.  I have lectured my adult kids on weight and taking care of themselves. I had to set the example this year and continue to try to lose a bit more. I was never heavy but I was heavier than I needed to be.  My clothes did not fit.  I was not taking care of the body God gave me.  Food choices and lack of exercise did their damage over the past eight years.  I had gained 25-30 pounds.  I was too thin when the weight gain started but I went soaring past the healthy weights... and I literally craved carbs, potatoes, pancakes, cookies ( I never ate sweets before with the exception of homemade cobbler).

Food is fuel for our body. Choosing healthy foods is your way for caring for the gift God has given you.  Your body is like His temple.  Just as you clean and care for your home, your car and your earthly is time to care for your body and your health.  Caring for yourself enables you the ability to care for others.

Cut out your sugar today... try it for three weeks if you can. The craving will stop. That is a first step.

BUY AMERICAN....with every purchase you make take a few seconds and try to buy American.  Our debt can be reduced quicker by supporting our own different than caring for your body above, care for your country. Support our businesses and workers. BUY AMERICAN.


"Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, Which you have from God."  1 Corinthians 6:19

Excellent words of wisdom. I've been more careful about my food intake and exercise but at my age, the weight is harder to maintain. Ugh! I haven't cut out sugar entirely yet, but do make wiser food choices.

Absolutely Buy American!!! Thanks for these reminders. Have a wonderful day. Blessings, SusanD
