I’ve been sick most of the week with a nasty cold.  Just sick enough so that my body won’t work, but my mind will.  What a frustrating combination!  My family can tell when I am on the mend because I start getting really hungry and begin fixing meals at random hours of the night and day.  This was particularly delicious.

Healing Oatmeal


1 apple and 2 large whole dates, diced

1/3 c whole rolled oats

Handful of raw almonds

Tblsp of raw honey

½ lemon, squeezed

Tsp of cinnamon

Dash of salt

Pinch of cayenne pepper

Bring water to near boil and begin adding ingredients.  Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes (or until the apples are soft, and the almonds are swollen), stirring occasionally.  Additional water might need to be added while cooking.

Climate Change?

It seems now as though every severe weather event is pounced upon as an opportunity to tout the effects of climate change supposedly caused by humans.  Speaking of climate change, human’s concerns over such relatively small changes in the long term global climate indicate just how specific human’s environmental needs are.  And how earth is comparatively suited so perfectly for humans.  And therefore that maybe we were intelligently designed and placed on the earth by a Creator God?  (Of course this does not give excuse for abusing the planet; contrarily we should be stewardly to the creation that God has placed us in.)

To end with a bit of satire:  Climate change is simply one of mother earth’s natural habits.
