Blessing #7 - Food
We all have a love-hate relationship with food, don't we? I like cooking, and I often like eating, but I really don't like what happens when I over-indulge in those things. Who does?
This morning I got a reminder email for an event that I forgot I'd ever signed up for: the Isaiah 58 Challenge end of the month fast, and, wouldn't you know it, this month it was a fast from food. Being unprepared, I opted to not participate today, but I haven't had dinner yet, and it's bugging me.
I have a headache.
I'm getting irritable.
I'm ever so slightly dizzy.
People are posting pictures of food on Facebook.
And I'm trying to do taxes.
I wonder how people feel who are lucky to get one meal a day. Does the aching stomach wear off? Does the headache eventually go away? Do they learn to squelch the irritability? Is there a trick to walking a straight line while dizzy?
I realized how blessed I am to have those questions (although, I'm not totally sure that being born to wealth is a blessing and not a curse). But, as someone (I honestly can't remember who, right now) has drilled into me,
I am blessed to be a blessing.
Who can you bless today?
