Yesterday’s word might have been “new”–I’ve been seeing that quite a lot in my reading, new life in Christ, new promise land, etc. And for us, new food!
It’s ironic though, because just prior to this I’d been getting just a little tired of telling people “no, Sam’s not on any kind of diet” (because he used to be), and now he is; and “no, we don’t do gluten-free any more” (that was years ago), but now we do; and “no, it doesn’t seem to matter what he eats”, but now we know it does! I’m sure some of our friends & loved ones have been tempted to wonder why we didn’t just stick with the diet he was on when he first got better, except that they know how difficult that one really was.
This new FODMAP science has given us a lot of hope for not having to be on any diets again some day, as well as introducing some new food concepts. Like “simple”. I don’t care what anyone else wants on their spaghetti, from now on all I’ll ever want is simple canned, crushed tomatoes (with hamburg and lots of salt)–mmmmm! And who knew that you could make tapioca pudding with coconut milk, egg replacer, and pineapple juice… better yet, who ever knew that I could think that one up on my own!! Oh, and something else I’ll always prefer, is gluten-free pasta made with corn flour, which melts in your mouth; even better, it’s NOT that much more expensive than President’s Choice, AND it’s available at No Frills!
OK, no more exclamation marks. *hard*
Today’s word: “glory”
“No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.” (Ephesians 2:10)
