Living Things

by

What are the important things in your life that require constant nourishment?

Your children?

Your pets?

Houseplants and gardens?

What about the intangible things? Those living things that require incredible amounts of energy and focus…

Your marriage relationship. Your relationship with your children, your parents, your siblings, your friends. Your health. Your faith. Your vision. Your goals.

These other living things are most worthy of our attention. Our deliberate maintenance, fostering connection and care. Who have you become because of your experiences with your family? What have you come to know through your experiences with God? When is His voice most clear to you? Do you keep those things ever before your face and on your heart? Do you record your most important thoughts and the inspiration you receive? Do you have bolstering declarations posted so that you can see them regularly to work on your beliefs and mindset every day?

Sometimes, I find myself thinking of these life-affirming blessings as common place; but then I’m reminded that they are the real sustenance of my life and should receive my greatest gratitude and efforts!

I hope you are well. I hope you will nourish, constantly nourish, your soul, your body, and then your loved ones and everyone and everything within your sphere of influence.

Much love to you!

Jacque

“Stand still…but first remember, remember the signs! Say them to yourself when you wake in the morning and when you lie down at night and when you wake in the middle of the night. Whatever strange things may happen to you, let nothing turn your mind from following the signs. And secondly, I give you a warning: here on the mountain, I have spoken to you clearly. I will not often do so down in Narnia. Here on the mountain, the air is clear and your mind is clear. As you drop down into Narnia the air will thicken. Take great care that it does not confuse your mind. And the signs which you have learned here will not look at all like you expect them to look when you meet them there.
That is why it is so important to know them by heart; and pay no attention to appearances. Remember the signs and believe the signs; nothing else matters. And now Daughter of Eve, farewell.”  The Silver Chair, C.S. Lewis

small handful of basil (about 1/4 C.)
sprinkle of salt
dash of vanilla
1/8-1/4 tsp. monk fruit powder, stevia, or other sweetener

Here’s a little video by Jenny, and her helper. I love the amaranth idea and know-how, but more than that, I loved watching the fun relationship that comes through loud and clear in this short clip.

Kudos to all you Mamas!

You are investing your talent and energy into relationships like this! Bless you! There are and will be great dividends coming your way.

Enjoy!

Love,

Smoothies With The Kitchen Coach

by

I am so tickled to link you up with a Jenny the Kitchen Coach video today. I love her and her ideas and food are always amazing!

And me, I’m propped up looking into the face of our newest little grandchild who is sleeping next to me. I am in awe again at the sanctity of life and the wisdom, creation and progress made possible within the family unit. All I can say is praise be to God for the opportunity to be in this flesh, learning at an accelerated pace by what we are experiencing here together. Life is precious.

I wish you a bright and happy Monday!

 

Love,

Jacque

 

P.S. Here are the recipes you’ll be seeing Jenny make on this video! Don’t they sound amazing?

Shamrock Shake (aka: healthy mint chocolate chip smoothie)
-3 C. milk of choice
-1/2 an avocado
-1C. greens of choice (more if you’d like!)
-1/4-1/2 tsp. monk fruit powder (or other sweetener, to taste)
-sprinkle of salt
-4-5 drops peppermint essential oil, or you can use 1/4-1/2 tsp. of peppermint baking extract.
-8-12 ice cubes
-unsweetened or dark chocolate pieces (as much as you want!)
Blend everything together for 20-30 seconds.
Sometimes I will blend everything but the chocolate and then blend that in separately at the end; this will give you slightly bigger chocolate chunks. Getting the amount of sweetener just right is key to making this taste amazing- if it tastes a bit bland, add more sweetener until it tastes right 🙂
Mango Basil Smoothie

small handful of basil (about 1/4 C.)1
C. milk of choice
