Asparagus in Water?

August 5th, 2015

My parents have grown asparagus in their garden for as long as I can remember.  Asparagus and rhubarb.   Amazingly, I still have not adopted much of a taste for either, however, I find that I have some sort of affinity for the thought of both.  So yesterday, when I saw this tweet from Mashable about Asparagus water at Whole Foods, I had to explore.

Essentially, some one created a health product with asparagus and water together based on some ideas of a healthy combination of water and veggies. However, this product was apparently created incorrectly and quickly left the shelves.

So, what’s the story for me?  Well, not much really, except I think it’s a reminder to us as we market ourselves to make sure we are known by the things that we should be known by.  Let’s not try to make something out of, well something we should not.

Maybe something simple like this..

35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.  John 13

Trust

August 4th, 2015

I am trying to get my schedule under control and get back to the keyboard, however it is presenting quite a challenge at the moment.  I am missing the time I spent thinking and preparing to put thoughts down.  This morning I have one quick thing, or thought. It’s just this – trust.

The Lord is not looking for us to fix stuff or to make things right, he just wants us to trust in Him and let him do the work.

It’s such a Sermon on the Mount type of thought.

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Matthew 6

Anyway, find ways to just simply trust today.
