I started broths and milk today. Heavenly. Advice. Straight chicken broth or beef broth is gross. I made some soup a friend gave me, strained out the few veggies, watered it down a tad..............it felt like a feast. I'm serious. I felt like I had experienced nirvana. lol. It was incredibly satisfying. Just did a cup full to start off. After my juice fiasco on day 21 I am going to try to ease into everything from here on.
This week is quite exciting. I have some energy....for which I am thankful. There is so much to get ready for with my new schedule starting Friday. I need more speed dial numbers. I am trying to figure out things that will require my touch. I've already stickered the microwave. I'm getting the dishwasher, dryer, and some cds today. I am also starting to memorize phone numbers. So I can call all my wonderful friends.
The plan is to listen to about 1-2 hrs of Bible on CD every day. This way I can help prepared for lessons. I have to label my Bible class material so I can listen to it multiple times to become familiar with it. This is going to be difficult. However, I expect it to be incredibly rewarding. If I have to memorize everything and not rely on notes I will need to internalize things more thoroughly.
I keep thinking about John 9:41
John 9:41 (New International Version, ©2010)
41 Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.
I don't expect to be absolved of sin because of this experiment (although I do expect to become more thankful for my eyesight). I do wonder if I am more enslaved to the lust of the eyes (1 John 2:16) than I realize. I want to be able to wholeheartedly acknowledge that I am blind without my Lord. I want to experience this truth (physically and spiritually) firsthand. I am nervous, anxious, excited, and hopeful. We will see what happens.
Haven't been around a scale today but am feeling as good as I ever have. Hope you are all well.
I use a lot of "I's" I notice. Seems mighty narcissistic......but this is a blog about my experiences and thoughts....so guess its OK. lol.
