   Humble yourself – or God’ll do it for you! (54)

              Take your voting privileges seriously and don’t rely on the mainstream media for information.  Take the time to research the past actions and experience of candidates thoroughly; if you have time to do scrapbooking or watch TV or surf the internet, then you have time to do a little outside reading.  Charisma is not leadership, and it only goes so far – especially when there are major challenges facing your city, state, or nation. (54)

              All humans are capable of leaving the world a better place, but we sometimes fall short of our full potential because of self-imposed limitations.  Realize that you will be fallible in your attempts at productive living, and be patient with others who struggle with this challenge as well.  Build on your strengths and support others in their progress.  (14)

But…

              Don’t give in to timidity or laziness, and make the mistake of expecting too little of yourself.  There is a dear emotional price to pay for not using your gifts or for being a lesser example rather than a greater example for others.  (54)

About

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.
