Let’s not mess around, people… here is my dinner from last night. It was so very delicious and nutritious that I’ve been craving it since last night.
It’s from Whole Foods (again) and cost $5.19. BOOM, cheaper than going to most of the other places I like. This mix has lots of salmon, a wild rice thing, quinoa, currants, edamame, broccoli, pumpkin seeds, almonds, corn, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette.
Monday night= small group with Joe’s family!
We went over 1 Peter 2:13-25. What stood out to me was the second part of verse 23: “When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly.”
I like that it doesn’t end with the fact that he didn’t do anything back when they abused him. It ends with how he also entrusted himself to God, knowing that He is the ultimate judge.
Now let’s get this clear… in our day, we don’t really face that much abuse or suffering. I wake up everyday in a clean and comfortable bed, I eat hearty meals everyday, and people are generally kind and courteous.
Even still, when I feel like someone has wronged me or disrespected me, I start to brew some judgmental feelings (natural reflex?). It takes a conscious effort to turn that off. It also takes a lot of effort not to run to a friend and vent about it. At the end of the day, I know I am in no place to judge someone. Why? I am selfish/self-centered (by nature) and I will only see myself as the victim and the other person as being wrong.
That’s why I must entrust myself in My Father, who sees all and knows all. He will judge fairly.
Whoa. I hope it wasn’t just rambling! Did it all make sense?
I woke up this morning and had a regular check up with the doctor. Everything is good! Woo hoo! Now I’ll wait another 5 years before I go in for my next physical (haha, jk).
After that, I went to church to meet up with Addie and Jane. We had a little run planned for this gorgeous afternoon.
Thank You, Lord, for such wonderful weather!
We simply alternated walking and jogging, and talking for almost all of it.
I love the Los Gatos Creek Trail. So lovely!
After our 3.2 mile run, we went to a local Vietnamese beef noodle soup restaurant, and I got the BBQ chicken vermicelli (of course). It was good and there was sooo much chicken!
Jane gave me some of her noodle soup (that block is BLOOD, yo! It was interesting in texture and I had about half this bowl). The soup was really yummy.
For something sweet, we went to the Willow Glen Ice Creamery shop that I kept talking about. This place as the Wow Cow frozen yogurt (9 calories per ounce). I got the chocolate Wow Cow in a waffle cone:
^I can’t rotate this picture. Whatevs. It’s like 90% face and yellow teeth.
MY NEW COMPUTER CAME IN THIS MORNING!!! No more having to use my little netbook as my main computer
I’m using it right now… and might I say: it is awesome.
