Nothing wrong with hippies. I can just imagine what comes out of your kitchen - mmm yum.
Good variety, high nutrient yielding foods, easy to digest, are some of the secrets of longevity.
So it seems that super foods are quite natural in the diet of other cultures and even with our ancestors, but our industrialized nations have gone for the varieties which favor business, which are not always the best sources of fiber, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, oils etc. hence when we consume these other varieties, we end up helping ourselves to a degree.
I remember when president Bush came to my city and I got a short work day because every business within a mile or so of the airport had to shut down and people had to leave and go home. The kind of security sweeps they do nowadays in concert with the kind of technology that they have available to them is absolutely incredible. A mosquito doesn't get past them without them seeing it. And wherever a person they are guarding is speaking, they search every room, every building and they clear every building beyond the distance that a sniper's rifle could reach. I am sure whoever is being guarded also wears a bullet proof vest.
CHRIST is the centre of God`s word. The scriptures, I believe -
FORSHADOW – Mosaic (Gen. – Deut.)
FORSEE – History (Joshua – Esther)
FORKNOW – Philosophical (Job – Son of Sol.)
FORETELL – Prophets (Isaiah – Mal.)
CHRIST`S EARTHLY MINISTRY – (Matt. – John)
CHRIST IN HIS BODY – (Acts – Jude)
CHRIST`S HEAVENLY GLORIFICATION – (Revelation)
Wasting money generally refers to spending money frivolously on things that add no inherent value to your life or is self-destructive. I used to know someone who bought books for no other reason than it made her bookshelves look good. She bought books she would never read and had no interest in. Not just a few either. She filled a whole wall of bookshelves of books just because she liked looking at a full set of bookshelves. She spent literally thousands of dollars on books for no really good or practical reason. And by any objective standard, that was a waste of money. It's also a waste of money when you spend just to spend, like when spending money is something that you do to put yourself in a good mood or because you're bored. I buy books but I am very careful with what I buy, making sure that the book has value and that I am not spending money on a book when I should be paying a bill.
Most clear thinking people would consider spending thousands of dollars to tattoo your entire body a waste of money, and it is a waste of money. It has no inherent value, it adds no measurable value to one's life. And you can never get that money back.
Not only that, but having money set aside for emergencies is also a more practical and non-wasteful use of money. The money that guy used to buy tattoos for his whole body would have come in handy if he needed it on hand for emergency medical reasons or some other reason. It's important to think about the future and not just spend money in order to spend it or to spend it on something that one day you will regret.
I didn't say he spent ALL of his money on tattoos. Trying paying attention; I said that the money he spent on the tattoos could have been spent on something better. Is it really that hard to understand?
I hope this weekend to finish the book on Enoch I'm reading and start on a book on DNA. Besides that, I'm going to enjoy my 3-day weekend with my wife, dogs and fixing my car, if the relay comes from Amazon comes in time. I really appreciate Amazon's breath of products, customer reviews and quality service. I might even get some shooting done at the range. Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [NASB, John 15:13]
How much more is the love of Jesus for us that He laid down His life for us who were not yet His friends? And let us never forget this Memorial Day the ultimate sacrifice of our men and women in service to this country, who put their lives on-hold, and on the line for all of us. God bless them, their families and friends.
