How often do we wake up already knowing what we will have for breakfast, or at least what we want for breakfast? I’d say everyday! Heck, most of us have planned out the whole day of meals, snacks, etc. And some, yes some, are way ahead and have planned out a full week of meals (that’s impressive!).
My friends, this is such a blessing. One that I (we) so so so often take for granted. As I look back over the years, I recall a time where food was not so abundant…..in Africa. I was given the opportunity to travel with a Mission Team to Lusaka, Zambia in the summer of 2006. While there, we hosted several camps for all the orphanages in that area. I got to love on these kids all day, every day. Actually, they loved on me!
I remember splitting my lunches with my translator, so that he could at least eat something each day. You see, I didn’t need to worry, we (the Americans) would have dinner waiting for us back at our camp grounds. I learned to be grateful, for whatever it was!
God showed me a lot during that time. He showed me how to Feed. Feed in thanksgiving, Feed in gratitude, Feed in Love, Feed in Humility, Feed in Faith, and so much more.
He taught me how to Feed my Soul.
I hope never for get that.
Day 4 and Day 5 of my Thankful Board.
Thank you God for your abundance. Let us count our blessings today!
Here’s a look at some of our last meals at home.
The meal below? Yes, that would be GF mac and cheese with Maramite, carrots, tomatoes, and GF Chicken nuggets.
Can you tell we are cleaning out the pantry? haha.
I was lucky to have scored the lovely Christin’s homemade PB.
She made it just for me, with marmite. Christin, I love you!
And of course, my last Kombucha fix. I will miss my GT Kombucha.
What are you feeding on this week? If anything, Feed on Gratitude!
I plan on posting everyone’s Thankful pictures tomorrow or Friday before we leave for NZ. Keep them coming!
