A Profound Love

Today’s verses:
Romans 11:33  ”  O, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgments, and untraceable His ways!”
Job 11:7  “Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?

Profound – the word of the day.  The proper definition, when speaking of a state, quality or emotion is “very great or intense”.
With a Google search on the Internet, you can find dozens of articles promising “profound” health changes through exercise, by drinking green tea, by taking supplements designed to help you lose weight, and many other profound statements. While most of these may be true and may help us to lead a healthier life,  I think many stretch the meaning of profound.  But all are worth looking into to make a “profound” change in your life for a healthier lifestyle.   Any change, profound or otherwise, that leads us to better health is good for us.
But there is another meaning of profound, which applies to a a person or statement:   “having or showing great knowledge or insight”.

Synonyms:  wise, learned, clever, intelligent, scholarly, sage, erudite, discerning,penetrating, perceptive, astute, thoughtful, insightful, percipient,perspicacious

The most profound being ever can be found in Jesus Christ.   Look at the synonyms: wise, perceptive, insightful, etc.  Are there any that can’t be used to describe Him? The Bible is full of verses that show God’s profound love and wisdom.  We can never really know how deep is God’s love for us and how much He helps us.  Imagine how much you love your child, or spouse, or partner.  Then multiply that by thousands, and you can  maybe get an inkling of His love for us.   So never doubt that whatever troubles or unhealthy addictions you face, God will be there to help you through. Blessings to all today!

Many kids are getting ready to go back to school. Here in my area we don’t start until after Labor Day. If the kids are getting bored, or you are getting tired, try some of these fun recipes to make with them!

Flavored Gelatin Wedges:
Cut an orange in half and remove the pulp, leaving the white membrane and the rind. Place orange halves in muffin tins and fill each with any flavor gelatin. Chill until gelatin in firm. Heat a knife blade with hot water, wipe dry and slice the orange into wedges. Keep refrigerated.

Yogurt Popsicles:
Mix one 6 oz. concentrated, unsweetened fruit juice with 1 carton of plain yogurt. Freeze in 3 oz. paper cups, using wooden sticks for handles when partially frozen.

Edible Play Dough:
Mix one 18 oz jar of peanut butter, 6 Tbsp. honey, non-fat dry powder milk or cocoa powder until you get a play dough consistancy. Shape any way and play.

Have fun!
