Three Ring Circus... Join Me?
“Life is a great big beautiful three-ring circus. There are those on the floor making their lives among the heads of lions and hoops of fire, and those in the stands, complacent and wowed, their mouths stuffed with popcorn." Christopher Hawk The Unnatural Truth.
With those 'winds of change' flying through our lives right now, sometimes you believe you might stop and question who you are and where you stand in a situation. I was calmed totally by scripture and knowing God stepped into my life to make an abrupt right turn for me. We took the day to catch up on groceries in the bare refrigerator. It is now filled with:
organic apples, red and green
organic daicon root and celery root
organic lettuces and organic cherry tomatoes
organic radishes (YUM... a favorite for me)
organic zucchini and yellow summer squash
organic bell peppers in many colors
organic green cabbage ( I am leaning to cabbage and potato soup with some lentils.)
organic celery and organic carrots
organic bokchoy large and small
organic lemons and oranges
organic bananas out side the fridge...
organic leeks and organic fingerling potato
organic sweet potatoes and organic russets.
I have black beans I will cook up this weekend so we have those fast accessible and I will steam some of these veggies to eat as snack stuff for a few days...
My life has a new found freedom of stress that I welcome! So life can be a three ring circus, but I do not want to be in the crowd stuffing popcorn watching life go by. God wants me ... and you.... in the mix serving and doing what we do best with the gifts he has given us.
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31
