15 days of praying for your children: Their Salvation

We all have sin and fall short of  the glory of God.

Even our cute cuddly innocent children

I pray that salvation will spring up within my children, that they may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. Isa. 45:8, 2 Tim. 2:10

Swiss Chard Salad with Sweet Basil and Thyme dressing

Introducing Swiss Chards
Swiss Chard is a leafy green vegetable often used in Mediterranean cooking. In some cultivars, the leaf stalks are large and are often prepared separately from the leaf blade. The leaf blade can be green or reddish in color; the leaf stalks also vary in color, usually white, yellow, or red Chard has been bred to have highly nutritious leaves and is considered to be one of the most healthful vegetables available, making it a popular addition to healthful diets (like other green leafy vegetables) 

Nutritional values

Swiss chard is high in vitamins A, K, and C, with a 175-g serving containing 214%, 716%, and 53%, respectively, of the recommended daily value. It is also rich in minerals, dietary fiber, and protein.
All parts of the chard plant contain oxalic acid. (taken from wikipedia)

I grew some swiss Chard on my tower garden because they were pretty, gives a quick turn around and are pack with nutritional values. However I hate greens! 
I do not like them Sam-I-Am I do not like green... 
Excuse my sudden need to go into Dr Seuss mode, when you have 5 year olds it happens! 
Carry on!
Which is why I have to always find creative ways to sneak them in my body. 
Remember the Collard greens Smoothie? 
The chard didn't turn out as good in a smoothie as the collard green did, so I figure out another yummy way to eat them.
Let's get started!

15 days of praying for your children: Their Mind

In today's world there are so many things attacking our children's mind. Even the youngest ones are not exempt. Horrible statistics and stereotypes keeps them in a hole, with no hope of ever getting out. But our children ought to live by what the word of God says about them, not the statistics, not the TV, not the magazine or anything else. 

so I pray

15 Days of Praying For Your Children Day 1 : Love

Day 1: Love

All we need is Love! Just like the song says, we need love. When God created men He breathe Himself into him without that breath well we all know what happened.  God is love so that very breath that keeps us alive is actually Love. God’s love!
Our children need love! We need love. We all crave that love.

When they are plugged into the source they’ll never run dry.
So  I pray

A better way to eat Collard Green

Collard greens are nutrient-packed, rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins A, C and K, as well as folate and calcium. 
They've been shown to lower cholesterol, help prevent cancer, and support detoxification. And they are loaded with fiber and a good dose of proteins.
