In the United States of America -- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year!
Worse, yet, when one stops to think about the number of children in the USA & the world over, who daily go hungry &/or die each minute from starvation.
From Wikipedia on malnutrition --- "There were 925 million undernourished people in the world in 2010, an increase of 80 million since 1990. Another billion people are estimated to have a lack of vitamins and minerals." And just think --- in the USA alone --- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year! Does this knowledge not grieve your heart? It does mine --- right past words to describe how much!
This gal abhors waste of any type --- especially of fresh produce. This idea pleases me beyond words & I sincerely hope that you will find it to your liking, too.
for checking this inglorious fruits & veggies idea out. Maybe, if we all suggest this to our supermarket chains, they will eventually get the idea that consumers will go for the idea of less expensive, while just as tasty veggies & fruits --- thus, resulting in less waste of God's bounty.

Natalie has gotten word from Hospice that her husband Chad will probably pass within a few days. She is asking for prayers of strength for her, their daughter Briton, and the entire family.
The above is from an e-mail, that I received today. Although I have not met this young family, I have been praying for them for some time now --- having heard of their need through a family member.
Please, as Holy Spirit leads you, lift prayer for our Creator God's perfect will to unfold for this young wife & mother & the grade school aged daughter; as well as for her husband, who is reported to be just hours away from entering eternity.
Of course, first & foremost, my sincere prayer is that Chad has made a decision for Christ &, thus, that his family & he have assurance that he will be spending eternity in the presence of our Creator God. Eternity is forever --- a very long time to be separated from the Lord God Almighty!
And, please, do join your prayers with those of others, in the days, weeks, months, & years ahead, for Natalie & very young Briton, as they face all the unknowns in a future on planet Earth without Chad. God bless them all with His unique comfort & peace!
And may our Creator God bless each one of you, as you join our Lord Jesus (as He sits on the right hand of the Father making intersession on our behalf), in prayer for Chad & those who treasure & love him!
Please share this request for prayer with other prayer warriors!

Over the last few years, I have shared this idea numerous times here at SP.
Each summer, as our days. in the shadow of the Rockies, grow increasingly warmer, I use this idea more & more. I believe it to be something that others might like to try.
A good 99% of the time, I like to drink water plain --- straight from the tap. However, I enjoy adding a bit of a twist when drinking iced water. By simply adding one or two herbal teabags (the choices seem limitless) to a gallon of water, I am able to enjoy flavored water at very little expense. Once served over ice - the melting ice cubes dilute the drink leaving just a hint of flavoring.
I find drinking flavored water made this way to be refreshing without the "iffy" quality, &/or the expense, of pre-flavored water or other water flavorings.
for stopping by & I truly do hope that you find this idea useful on several levels.
