Do You Love Food?

I love Food. It has become a huge part of my life

It has become part of what I desire to be in my future.

As I have matured my relationship with food has grown. The relationship is much healthier than my High School years. I thought less was more to run my fastest. With the caring voice of a beloved friend, whom I love with all my heart, I was given a wake up call & my ways will forever be changed.

By the Grace of God I can enjoy food for what it is & what it does for my body.

Food is given to us for strength, it is pure & the Lord has provided it for us to live & live for Him!

This is why I chose to have a balanced lifestyle. Not a diet. I love to cook a certain way & eat foods that honor  my body. It is a temple.

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own.

1 Corinthians 6:19

Here is a quick piece of poetry. It may seem odd, but food is a big part of our lives. May this piece touch someone as I have put much thought into it.

Consumption

Goodness is sought after

Purity is probable

A Temporary restraint

A daily essential

Pleasure is found

Some from one seed

Any simple request

Preparation indeed

Sent for strength

Not for gluttony

Nor conceit

Let uniqueness spark

Divinely made

Time has told

Evolved and transformed

True beauty can withstand

Pure and Bold

Unique and from the Holy Land
