Hello, dear readers/followers,
I hope this finds you doing well, making good progress on your journey toward your health goals. I wanted to let you know my reasons for being absent lately, and why you won’t be hearing from me nearly as often as you have been.
First and foremost, my spare time has been spent on other things. Between doing our taxes (we itemized ALL our medical expenses), a sick neighbor needing some care, and making some decisions about the future, plus keeping up with a growing, active toddler, I have barely had time to do anything for myself. And, quite honestly, the first spare moment I have is not devoted to this blog. I would rather go read a book. :) A real one, not the “e” kind. I like the feel of the pages.
Next has been the issue of my feeling haughty. In Proverbs 6, Solomon says this –
16 There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

After reading Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live book, I sometimes feel superior in my knowledge of food, and sometimes I find myself judging other people for the things they eat. I know both of these are sinful, so I have been working on eliminating those thoughts from my mind. I just need to take a breather and get refocused on the purpose of this blog – to encourage and help anyone making progress toward a healthy goal.
Then there’s the issue of only one computer, which my husband takes to work with him daily, so that doesn’t leave a lot of opportunity for me to get my thoughts down in “e” form.
Finally and most importantly, I am abandoning modern, electronic forms of communication for traditional forms, such as phone calls, face to face conversations, and personal visits. I feel like I am feeding a fake relationship when I have an entire conversation via text message or facebook messenger. I am tired of operating in the fake world and am searching out ways to be more genuine.
So what does that mean for you?
If I have something good to say, I’ll post it. Otherwise, there is enough “noise” out there – you won’t notice one less voice shouting at you to do something good for yourself today (but really, do one good thing for your body today!). Thanks for understanding.
