What am I eating?
Potato chips are among my favorite foods. This time of the year during great lent, they seem to go with almost anything that we're allowed to eat and not fasting from. They make a great replacement for a cracker, or foundation in a vegetarian dish and, are a time saver--replacing the need to peel potatoes. Just a few in hand are so satisfying. Today you can buy so many varieties, even fat reduced and low sodium as well as sea salt and all different consistencies. Sometimes, I like the very thin light and airy type and today it's the small, hard and crunchy ones. Crunchy means that you have to chew more, and therefore you actually consume less. That's the idea, consuming less. Even though I appreciate the fast foods, and welcome the discipline that the church suggests for spiritual enlightenment, I am at this point eager to change the menu just a tad bit. Went to the doctor's yesterday, where my blood pressure continues to be good. The church has always looked out for our well-being, and we become blessed in every way possible. That is why I am so perplexed as to why the church remains unfilled to capacity. Hopefully, after Saturday, this will change, with the celebrated Liturgy of Christ's raising Lazarus from the dead. If you aren't impressed by this, which is an event that prefigured His own death and Resurrection, then may I ask why? Who do you know that has risen from their grave, lately if ever? And what does that hold true for you? Are you prepared to meet Christ on the day of your Resurrection from the dead? I know we understand that death is a journey that we all must take. As well, we are told of the Universal Resurrection in which we are all called to partake in. This week on Sunday, we will remember the response of the crowd, some were witnesses of the raising from the dead of Lazarus, four days in the tomb, with their palm branches saying: "Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord." There is no question that they knew who he was. Shortly after, there will be a Death and a Resurrection. Not an ordinary death...Not just an ordinary person, but the Christ. The Son of the Living God....Come and see! Receive the Bread of Life, the only Real Food that there is. Sunday we will place the palms on our Icons around the home as a reminder of our King and God, present amongst us, and the great news of Salvation, celebrated on Holy Pascha (Easter).

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
