Thursday: "THIS IS MY BODY GIVEN UP FOR YOU"

Our FAITH AND FOOD $21 Fast….has been an enlightening week.

2 CUPS OF PINTO BEANS
2/3’S A CUP OF SPLIT PEAS
2 EGGS
1 SUPER LARGE POTATO
2 HANDFULS OF SPINACH
ABOUT 10 CARROTS
ABOUT 2/3 OF A CUCUMBER

That is what it has broken down to be for each day.

Now this is what it looked like for each of us.

HUBBY:
1 egg (except one day)
1 cup of beans
1/2 of super large potato
handful of spinach
6 carrots
1/3 cucumber

DAUGHTER:
1 egg (except one day)
1 cup of beans
1/2 of super large potato
1 -2 carrots

ME:
2/3 cup of split peas
handful of spinach
4-5 carrots
1/3 cucumber
***coconut oil

Now think about how what was listed under each of us and how it had to stretch out into three meals.

A day for hubby would look like:
Breakfast: 1 egg, 1/3 cup of beans, 1/2 handful of spinach
Lunch: 1/3 cup beans, 1/4 of the potato (1/2 of his portion), 3 carrots
Dinner: rest of beans and potato, rest of veggies diced up and made into a salad

A day for daughter:
Breakfast: 1 egg, 1/2 her potato portion
Lunch: 1/2 cup beans, 1 carrot
dinner: rest of beans and potato, 1 carrot

A day for me:
Breakfast: spoonful of coconut oil, 1/3 cup of split peas
Lunch:  1/2 of spinach, 2 carrots
Dinner: rest of split peas, rest of veggies diced together.

***I could have shared pictures but I want you instead to take measuring cups, fill them with dried items, or liquid and truly see and experience the measurements of each item.  Sit with that plate or bowl in front of you and feel the humbling experience of how little food it is.  YET….so much more than so many out there receive on a daily basis.

It has been an enlightening and humbling experience.

YET…..we still allowed ourselves seasonings, oils, vinegar, herbal tea, (coffee for hubby).

WE TRULY ARE BLESSED.
WE TRULY HAVE PLENTY.
WE TRULY ARE LOVED.

Tonight when we partake in the LAST SUPPER……I will TRULY feel the HUNGER for CHRIST and all HE HAS SACRIFICED AND OFFERED FOR US!  

I WILL FEEL THE HUNGER AND PLEASURE OF BREAKING OF HIS BREAD!

I WILL UNDERSTAND HOW ONLY HE CAN TRULY FILL ME UP!

I WILL APPRECIATE THE EMPTY BELLY FEELING BECAUSE WITHOUT HIM I AM EMPTY.

ONLY HIS FOOD WILL TRULY FILL ME UP!

Eat from HIM….and you will NEVER go HUNGRY again!

Have a glorious HOLY THURSDAY!

hugs and blessings my dear readers, friends, family,

I connect self-care to our self-love through Essential Oils! Nurturing our nutritional needs equals self-care. Our need for nature connects us to our mind body soul spirit being. Knowledge expands understanding that self-care leads to self-love. Self-love lights up the world and connects us to others! We are all connected within and with others. I love sharing, motivating, and educating about the amazing gifts of biblical health through essential oils, self-care, and self-love!
