Yesterday was the first day of summer and I've made a decision; I'm going to enjoy it!
I've been listening to too many "They say's" lately. You know, They say I should wear sunblock every second I'm outside, cloudy or rainy. Oh but now, They say sunblock may actually be bad for me and I need some unprotected time in the sun or my vitamin D levels will be too low.
They said a low fat diet was absolutely necessary for me to have ultimate health. But wait a minute, now They say I actually need fats for my body to perform the way it should!
Oh last month, They said a high carb diet would give me energy and keep me satisfied while keeping my weight stable. This month They say, no, it's got to be low ~ or no ~ carbs all the way or I'll get all kinds of inflammation in my body!
I don't really know who They is, but I'm tired of listening to They and being jerked around. I truly want to be healthy, so who should I believe? I think I'll go to my body's owner's manual and see what it tells me. Here's the words I'm looking for, straight from the manufacturer:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
Proverbs 3: 5-8
Well it's quite simple after all, isn't it? I'll quit listening to what They say and just listen to what
Thank You, Lord, for giving such a simple answer to my many questions.
P.S. And thank you Keren for the wonderful picture of the little girl in her itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini! How did you know what my inner giggly girl looked like in a bikini? :)
