Month of Thanksgiving -- Blessing 11

Branch Of Wisdom

Today I thank the Lord for His food, both physical to nourish the body, and spiritual to nourish the soul.  In our fallen state, our bodies grow weak and require food and water to function.  The growling emptiness and the dry thirst remind us that we are weak, and that we need to rely on Him for strength.

Just as our physical bodies grow weak without nourishment, our spiritual souls require food.  Fellowship with the Lord--in reading and prayer--and spiritual sharpening with our spouses, children, and the community of believers is vital to the growth of our souls.

He has made His wonders to be remembered;
The LORD is gracious and compassionate.
He has given food to those who fear Him;
He will remember His covenant forever.
He has made known to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the heritage of the nations.
Psalm 111:4-6 nasb [emphasis mine]

  1. Yes, amen.
    Lovely shots, scrambled eggs(?I am sure this is what it is?)...look absolutely scrumptious. Yummy!!!
    Have a blessed day!

  2. Now I'm hungry!!! You always have such beautiful pictures, Christine.

    I just talked to the kids this week about how many times a day we eat physical food and how even more importantly our body needs the Spiritual food!

    Have a blessed day!

  3. It is so thought provoking to know that He provides both for our physical as well as our spiritual body. What an amazing heritage we have as believers in Him!


    PS: the first photo reminds me of a dish that we make in Cartagena - Colombia...pericos :)

  4. Katia--Yes! Scrambled eggs with green peppers and onions from my garden. It was what was left in the fridge, and so yummy!

    Ev.DaySacred--Thank you!

    Maria--Amen. The dish really was just scrambled eggs. My husband is Mexican; I've never heard of pericos. Sounds good, though!


  5. So true and encouraging. :)


  6. Dear Christine...thank you for sharing! Simple blessings for your day! Hugs ♥ Teri
