OVER THE HUMP DAY!
Today is Use Your Common Sense Day, always on Will Rogers' birthday. Rogers said, Common sense ain't all that common.
I love how some people can say things like that and it makes sense. I think a lot of things would be a lot better for all of us if we used some of that Common sense. People seem to be too busy anymore for things like that. In the information age we are living in, many think it’s easier just to go online to solve their problems. I do it myself. There is a lot of info out there about everything, but sometimes it is better just to use our heads a bit.
The Everlasting Father, the Ancient of Days
I praise you, Lord, as the Ancient of Days (Daniel 7:9), the Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6), who lives forever and ever. . . .
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
Here, some top antioxidant-packed foods to incorporate into your Meal Plans
Tomatoes: Studies show that eating tomato products may reduce prostate cancer risk. The key ingredient: a powerful antioxidant called lycopene, also found in pink and red grapefruit and guava
2. Kale: Research shows that eating dark leafy greens, like kale, may help maintain good health by reducing one’s risk of heart disease and stroke, some cancers, and several other illnesses. They’re rich in beta-carotene, foliate, and vitamins C, E, and K, which help protect against free radicals (damaged cells that injure good cells and harm DNA). Regularly eating dark leafy greens may also lower blood pressure and cholesterol and promote normal eyesight. Spinach and Swiss chard also contain these disease-fighting nutrients
3. Walnuts: Like all nuts, walnuts are a great source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Unlike other nuts, walnuts are high in heart-healthy omega-3 oils. Other sources of omega-3s include flaxseed and, of course, fish and fish oil supplements
4. Blueberries: A study found that a number of compounds in blueberries, including pigment-producing anthocyanins, are powerful in preventing cancer. Other berries have similar antioxidants in smaller quantities
5. Pomegranates: These fruits are high in flavonoids, antioxidants also found in red wine and cocoa Recent studies show that pomegranate juice may also help prevent heart disease
6. Sweet potatoes: They're rich in beta-carotene and vitamin C, both powerful antioxidants that work to prevent and possibly reverse the cell damage caused by free radicals. Other good sources of beta-carotene are carrots and apricots
Isn’t good to know that a part of our thanksgiving feast will include something very good for you too!
ATTIRE FOR TODAY
It’s going to be another chilly one and the forecast for tomorrow has those white flaky things in it.
Lord, life can present many challenges and obstacles. Many of these may seem impossible to get through. But doing it at our own pace and with your help, we can get through these obstacles, one at a time.
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Tueday evening I felt exhausted as the past 2 days of work have been very busy. So I just took it very easy last night. Hopefully, this evening I’ll get something done here at home.
The moon was beautiful going to work yesterday morning and I thought of all of you when I saw it, because you all could see it too and in a way we were doing something together.
