life giving food

It is in the death flow 8:21 PM Wednesday night. It rained this afternoon here by Lake Michigan and it is going to rain tonight and tomorrow. April showers bring May flowers.

I had thus far a normal day. I might of mentioned earlier that my wife and I went grocery shopping this morning. It always amazes me that when we are grocery shopping that I can buy anything I want in this giant grocery store to eat. I can buy any food items that I am in the mood to consume. That is a scary freedom when I know we are to be concern for those in the world who have nothing to eat. I am not really into food so when we are grocery shopping I let Carol determine what we are to eat through our momentary existence. I am content with basic food. I am not a big eater. My basic problem is that I eat too many flour products. I need to eat more fruits and vegetables. Carol and I do not buy junk food. There is so much non food items in a grocery store. What we need to eat are just life giving food items like apples and tomatoes for example and not candy and potato chips. I sometimes wish I could remember what we ate as children. I have no memories of our mother cooking a meal or going grocery shopping. Did we have food to eat growing up? I do not remember as a child being hungry. I did have a stomach ulcer by the time I was nine years old. I had a rough childhood. I do not think I was loved as child. I suffered a lot of verbal abuse as a child. I do not remember anyone telling me they loved me as a child.

So this day has gone by. Carol slept today and got up to get ready to go to work around 6:20 PM. She works tonight and then is off four nights. I will be glad when she is retired, even though I am sure she will still work a little after she retires. My wife enjoys being a nurse and I can not see her giving that up completely.

This evening I have been mainly reading the novel "Gods Without Men" by Hari Kunzru. I am tired so I plan to go to bed early tonight.

I suppose I will close to wander.

"[41] The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
[42] And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?
[43] Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
[44] No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
[45] It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
[46] Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
[47] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
[48] I am that bread of life.
[49] Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
[50] This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
[51] I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
[52] The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
[53] Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
[54] Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
[55] For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
[56] He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
[57] As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
[58] This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
[59] These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum." John 6:41-59
