Day 82 Manna from Heaven and Days of Creation

God wants us to eat. Long ago He provided manna for the Israelites and today, abundant resources for us. The requirements are that we work to obtain food and reserve Sunday as a day of rest. When we do our food becomes sweet to us just as the manna was sweet to the Israelites.

I love studying the creation. If we ordered the food we store according to days of creation, we would prioritize 1)emergency water (separating water and land on day two) and then food from 2)plant sources before food from 3) animal sources. In other words we would store grains, and legumes before meat. All our storage efforts build to a seventh day, a day of rest, a day to commune with God. In a way every meal is the seventh day. It is the time we stop to rest and renew and talk with God as we offer a prayer over the food and give thanks to Him.

Breakfast: Three people had leftover cheeseburger soup. I had hummus with cheese on top and the little children had bread and peanut butter.

Lunch: Split pea soup form the crock pot(most skipped this meal) because of church. The soup was delicious. We will have leftovers for tomorrow.

Dinner: Baked chicken quarters. Potato steak fries with mayonnaise and ketchup, and sprouts were available.

  1. I wish everyone would realize that grains and plants come before meat. People in this country eat way too many animals.
