I’m done. I can’t do this. This was not my idea. So many red flags; what were they thinking? Could this be what was going through Joseph’s head? I’ll just let her down quietly; no one will ever know. Then, bam, an angel appears and turns your life around; places everything into perspective. Not too many people report angel sightings these days, however the Lord is still in the business of directing our paths. Today, as we spend time in worship reading these passages, meditate on the idea that your way may not be God’s way. Invite Him to open your mind and eyes to his plans.
Allow me to share a new kitchen gadget, a Christmas present to myself, a gadget to create plant based milk. A very good friend of mine hails from China. She shared with me one day her secret to menopause, home brewed soy milk. Incredibly Dr. Neal Bernard of Physicians Committee of Responsible Medicine, has been studying the effects of soy on menopause, in particular hot flashes. See https://www.pcrm.org/clinical-research/fighting-hot-flashes-with-diet for details. Dr. Bernard is a true warrior for chronic illness doing clinical study’s on the impact of food on our bodies. During this fast, all plant based milks are encouraged and if middle age is bringing you down, go for the soy.
