Yesterday I heated some leftover chicken wings and also prepared celery sticks, baby carrots and dip for lunch. While eating the third chicken wing the words meat feeds the blood crossed my mind and I didn’t want to eat the wings anymore, just the vegetables. Later I had the rest of the cut up pineapple and had eggs and rice for dinner.
Today a fruit salad of honeydew melon, pineapple, and bananas is in my mind as well as a personal watermelon. My mind’s eye thinks of fish and seafood, grains, fruits, and vegetables.
Two nights ago I watched a DVD and when going to bed my mind had the thought that watching worldly television kept me worldly. I felt to elevate my thoughts and to go outside in the evening instead of watching TV.
(A few days ago the power flashed and ever since then we’ve had no TV or Internet. I can’t help but wonder if it’s the Lord.)
Last night after the sun went down I sat outside on the patio in my backyard and the sunset was gorgeous! It was 97 degrees but there was a breeze from time to time. I loved being out there and plan to do that more often.
Yesterday was Sunday and the thought in my mind on that day is always Does this action bring me closer to Heavenly Father? I navigated to LDS.org and watched, read, and looked at things on that website. Many of the ‘For The Strength Of Youth’ youth videos struck me, especially the last one I watched called “Sabbath Day” with a quote by President Russell M. Nelson. Was it by chance that it was the last video I watched? I don’t think so.
