The other thing is quality of life; if you have a place where you can go and have a picnic with your family, it doesn’t matter if it’s a recession or not, you can include that in your quality of life.

The title of “Christ” means “Anointed” which dictates his authority but, it comes from humble and beautiful origins rooted in the anointing itself.

To anoint basically means to “give peace and enlightenment to the mind” as oil soothes and gives ease to the spirit as well as fuels the light of the lamp within, and thus the olive branch is used as the symbol of peace. What I find most endearing is the humble origins of the anointing as it’s based in an example of a simple and beautiful life.

Λιπαρός

This word is Greek in origin and it is the anointing given to livestock etc. It is called “liparos” and it means “Things which pertain to a sumptuous and delicate style of living”. Read that again, Things pertaining to a sumptuous and delicate style of living. RICH & SIMPLE/HUMBLE & GENTLE.

The anointing of life is to be a humble king in all things. No matter what let your light shine and find ease in the truth. You are a reflection of God through His son THE ANOINTED ONE. No matter your race, gender, station, don’t be ruled by any obstacle that comes your way. Live well, live rich but be modest and humble. Eat deeply of the Tree of Life. So be a KING in all things but always remember to let Jesus be your KING OF KINGS.

The disparity between a restaurant’s price and food quality rises in direct proportion to the size of the pepper mill.

Salt is mentioned all over the Bible but not a word on Pepper. Salt is purity as well as bitterness, so when Lot’s wife turns to a pillar of salt she is consumed with bitterness and also consumed from the earth thus purifying it and leaving behind a foundational pillar of truth.

My first outdoor cooking memories are full of erratic British summers, Dad swearing at a barbecue that he couldn’t put together, and eventually eating charred sausages, feeling brilliant.

It’s the simple things in life that make it amazing, but in the expectations of greatness it all goes up in flames.

The best practice is to always do your best without expectations. In such you’ll find that even simple things feel like victories for there is never any failure. Failure is and always will be an expectation that is beyond your control. Nothing is certain. The greater the expectations the greater the misery. Nothing will ever match up to what you envision and you will almost always be let down by the results. This is best said in the Bible in the book of Luke.

Luke 14: 8-11

8              When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;

9              And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

10           But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

11           For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

A wise woman puts a grain of sugar into everything she says to a man, and takes a grain of salt with everything he says to her.

It’s an odd thing to realize that gender is not specific in the Bible for all humans are men called “Adam”. Gender in the “Book of Secrets” is an attribute of masculine or feminine qualities of each person and not a superior or inferior relationship of sexes. We are all equals in the eyes of God and until we see that, we will forever be lost in a world of blind ignorance and fear.

Eskimo: ‘If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?’ Priest: ‘No, not if you did not know.’ Eskimo: ‘Then why did you tell me?’

It is NOT your doctrine but your judgments that makes you accountable.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.

 

Winston Churchill

 

Leviticus 11:1-7

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

 

Choices without care:

  • If feet symbolize your choices then a parted foot is a balanced choice without excess; not parting too far in either extreme of neither right nor left. (Eccl 7:15-18)
  • If to “chew the cud” is to ruminate than it is to consider, reflect and ponder upon your choices you have made.
  • Then the pig knows what is right from wrong but cares nothing for the consequences of their actions so long as its hungers were gratified.
  • Abstain then from adding this spirit body to the self by eating of its attributes.

I would rather be the best nobody I can,
than to be crowned the king of the pigs.

If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don’t just stick there scowling at the problem. But don’t make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people’s words will pour in where your lost words should be.

 

Hilary Mantel


Imagine life as a pie, it’s always great in moderation.

Now the true soldiers of Christ must always be prepared to do battle for the truth, and must never, so far as lies with them, allow false convictions to creep in.

 

Origen


It seems there’s always some creep just lurking in the crowd.

Give a man a beer, waste an hour. Teach a man to brew, and waste a lifetime!

 

Bill Owen


They say Alexander the great conquered most of the world by the time he was 30, but his death came from a VERY LARGE BEER!

Numbers 21:16 And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water.

…And we shall call it “Beer”
