Reinforcing the Pillars on Which Your Life is Built

  PLAN AHEAD!  Not just for tomorrow, but until the time comes to enter the place which God has prepared for you.  By this I mean, place Christ where He belongs – at the center of your life.  As the days and years go by, you will realize more fully that unless you have this kind of foundation, all else will have no true meaning.  (47)

             Husbands and fathers, be responsible to establish and maintain daily table prayers at meals (also at restaurants), and have regular evening home devotions with bible reading, hymns, and prayers.  (27)

             “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.”  Matthew 6:33.  These words have guided me personally through confirmation and childhood; through the tough teens, dating, and marriage; through child rearing; and now through interacting with our adult children.  These words sum up the bible:  First search the scriptures and live your life in God’s Grace, the rest will come as He wills.  It is so simple – people make it difficult.  (37)

            In everything that you do, consider first what the Lord would want you to do.  If you’ve been raised in a Christian home, you usually know what the proper decision is, it’s a matter of having the strength to choose it.  (33)

            Above all, take up the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation.  And the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, and watching thereunto with all the perseverance and supplication for all saints.  Ephesians 6:16-18  (39)

            Remember your priorities, in your efforts to be the best that you can be.  Life is about faith in God, family, and cherished friends.  (9)

            Read the kings James Bible and believe that you are blessed to be children of God.  (45)

Recipe. According to Encarta, "a list of ingredients and instructions for making something." The thesaurus offers the alternate terms, "formula, guidelines, directions, steps, technique."

And what is the "something" we are aiming for here? Simply a life of robust good health in every important area - spiritual, physical, cognitive, and emotional.

To that end we offer inspirational real-life stories about PEOPLE OF FAITH AND COURAGE; menus and cooking directions meant to fuel your creative inclinations and your healthy body in the form of MUSINGS OF A MIDWESTERN FOODIE; and ADVICE FOR LIFE from the perspective of those who have lived it to maturity. (Click on the green category tabs at the top of this page to learn more about each section.)

Have a taste and see what you think. If you like what we are serving up, please tell your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to stop by for a visit, too.
