I have been ignoring my conscience when it comes to food and killing. I continually say that I am going to eat healthy but I never do it. I hit 238 pounds, I have bad bones and arthritis. My knee is bone on bone. Its completely senseless of me to be carrying so much weight. On top of this, I have a growing fear and awareness that our food system and ways have been severely compromised. Couple this with the fact that animal agriculture is one of the most destructive forces we have ever seen. The more I research the more I am convinced that I MUST downsize and eat with my conscience. I must base my meal around real live food of known origin. Its tough but not impossible.
I am craving and enjoying a "no death in the temple" approach to food. No Bones, no blood in my kitchen. As a hunter/fisher and gatherer, this approach to life seams diametrically opposed to my current lifestyle. Nonetheless, the command to my heart is no death in the temple and so by conscience I must follow where this leads. Mother Earth has been an extraordinary provider and the Lord has filled my cup to overflowing.
I want to be meek and humble and I want to give true thanksgiving. I have found that the last couple weeks have been difficult with me craving abundance and indulgence. The good thing, is I have found myself truly grateful for cabbage, and squash, and potatoes and carrots and apples and the glorious list goes on. Lentils, Beans, Rice...its all so good when you are hungry.
Heavenly Father thank you for your richest blessings and help me to be truly grateful and live like it.

Qi and Hu, Ruach and Jah
2015 has been a year of hardships and blessings. I lost a good friend and that didnt feel so good. It makes one ponder and reflect. I try to seek the good in all things. I still love Jesus.
