Aha! Peace with Food!!

It was just your ordinary sultry summer night in Kansas, or so we thought. . .

As we sat on the back porch watching our kids catch lightning bugs, little did we know that we were about to embark upon the solution to our greatest struggle and frustration – peace with food and peace with our bodies.

For whatever reason, on this evening we openly shared our challenges with food and our bodies, and as we did, we realized that our stories weren’t all that different.  Empowered with the knowledge that we weren’t alone, we were determined to find what we dubbed Peace with Food.

As we set out on this adventure we were committed to a few things:

  1. We would follow peace, not diets and rules.
  2. We would experiment to see what worked best for us individually.
  3. We would enjoy our life along the way.
  4. We would not rest until we had found Peace with Food.

That journey began over three years ago and today, well, we can say we found it.  We found Peace with Food.

What exactly is Peace with Food?  Well, we hope to share with you our revelations and what we have discovered in future posts.  It has been a great journey so far and with every mile marker we experience greater levels of peace.

Are you looking for Peace with Food and your body?  Or maybe you know someone who is.  If peace has eluded you, be assured, you can have it.  You can experience your “Aha” moment, and live at Peace with Food.

{100 Zillion}

So, a couple of days ago I told my girls to go upstairs and clean their room and play-area while I cleaned the downstairs.  Although we frequently talk about working with DiLiGeNt hands, this day left much to be desired.

As we were cleaning, my 6-year old came down to the landing and as she talked to me {NiNe} steps below where she stood, she had the audacity to tell me that she does way more work than I do and I don’t work at all!!

Yes, I should have told her I would address that comment in a few minutes after I had let off about 80,000 psi of steam!!  But I didn’t.  I marched up those {nine} steps and dealt with that sassy, disrespectful, little attitude right there on the spot.  I’m sure my eyes were bugging out and my head bobbing side to side as I informed her that I did “100 ZiLLiOn” more things than she ever did.  (Yes, I really did say that before I could even think about what was coming out of my mouth.)

After I finished my ranting and she apologized we both went back to work.  As I vacuumed I was still fuming when God spoke, “So……, you do 100 zillion more things than she does?  Probably not.  However, this is a CoNvErSaTiOn we could have because I really do 100 zillion more things than you do.”

Oh, GrEaT Now I have two people to apologize to.

The point of this post?  Well, it could be not to deal with people or make rash decisions when you are angry – a total and complete recipe for disaster.

Or, it could be that God does way more than I could ever even imagine.  In those moments when I think He is doing nothing or at least not what I think He should be doing I forget that He is the One who painted the sky with white puffy clouds, causes the BuTtErFly to flutter in the warm air, lights up lightning bugs in the summer night, and gives my heart another beat, along with countless other deeds.

Psalm 139:17-18 says:

“How PrEciOuS are your thoughts towards me, O God.  How vast is the sum of them.  Were I to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand.”

After this experience I think I now have a little bit clearer picture of that number.  Somewhere cLoSeR to 100 zillion.
