Fed by HIM

Just like you and me
People with names and stories
Once little children

Sleeping under stars
They are laying on the dirt
I am in a bed

I eat what I want
They eat what is provided
Both are fed by God

My life is easy
Their path has been very hard
Yet they praise Him too

Feed the ones who come
Love them where they are today
Thank Him for your food

Foodies and Mountaneers

5 minute Friday. 6 minute Saturday.

Okay, I can do this!

7 minute Sunday…Ready, set, go!

No, I can’t think of anything original today so once again I’m stealing the idea for Five Minute Friday from my friend Kayla and altering it to fit Sunday.

I do have some more thoughts about mountains but I don’t have them formulated well enough to blog about them yet. They are still in the cooker. It’s interesting that is where they are at the moment since I was at the store buying ingredients to cook with when they first popped into my mind.

It is also interesting that we are even talking about cooking at all. I nearly took a picture of my dinner tonight to prove that I am on my way to being a foodie. I took a survey and scored a measly 44%. I did learn that one sign that you are a foodie are the pictures you post of your food. I wonder if anyone would be tricked into believing that if I started posting more food pictures?

Do they need to be pictures of food you actually cook?

Hey! Maybe I could drag a camp stove up mountain and take a picture of the food I cook on it in the great outdoors. I’ve actually been on a mountain climbing trip where we packed in our food. I could so do that!

And that is how you say absolutely nothing about food and mountains in 7 minutes.

You can thank my blog challenge peeps for this post! 🙂

Leftover Provision…that’s Good!

When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.

Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages[a] to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”

Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”

10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). 11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.

12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” 13 So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten. – John 6:5-14

Did you see what Jesus did in verse 11?  As much as they WANTED…plus 12 baskets of leftovers!  That is who our Daddy is.  He doesn’t do anything small.  He doesn’t just meet our NEEDS.  He is a more than you can ask or imagine God.  As I look over my girls Christmas lists, I wish I could do that for them.  I wish I could supply all their needs and all their wants and give them 12 more presents on top of that.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Jesus came to represent God.  He only did what he saw the Father doing…and he gave them all they WANTED, plus!
