  •  The USDA advises us to choose vegetables from all of the following groups each week:

    • Dark green (kale, lettuce, mustard greens and Swiss chard)

    • Orange (carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and winter squash)

    • Legumes (dried beans, lentils and peas)

    • Starchy (corn, green peas and potatoes)

    • Other (such as cabbage, cucumbers and onions)

    As we head into summer when fresh fruits and vegetables are more readily available, here are a few suggestions for boosting your daily intake:

  •  This Sunday is Father’s Day and as such it is a very special day for most families in our nation. Fathers may not always be all they ought to be but when Jesus wanted to illustrate the love and nature of God, he wanted us to think of God as a heavenly father.

    God’s word commands that we honor our fathers. This means we give them particular attention, special regard and seek to show their value and worth. We are to honor our father every day and not just the third Sunday in June.

  •  How beautiful your sandaled feet, O prince's daughter!  Song of Songs 7:1a

    How beautiful ... are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, Your God reigns! Isaiah 52:7

    Summertime is the time for sandals and flip-flops. Every year stores are full of cute styles of cool, barely-there shoes to be worn on hot sultry days. I do not indulge in many toeless shoes, however, because I have such ugly feet!

  •  As a child, I can remember my cousin, Jackie, and I would dream of finding buried treasure. We would even dig under trees and rocks in hopes of finding a box of jewels or money.

    Needless to say, we were never successful in our quest.

    But we all have a treasure trove that we can "dig" into. Proverbs 2:4-5 says if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
