Going Raw for 30 days (or more)

Hello All my Friends and Loyal Readers,
Well this monday my Dad, my sister (Noel) and I will be embarking on a long and tedious journey of going all raw. "What does THAT mean" you ask. Well, it means that we will be eating all raw fruits and vegetables, no cooked foods, no sugar, no caffeine, no dairy, no flour, etc. It's basically a strict vegan diet, it has nothing to do with our beliefs (we still love our meat), we have just been reading up on it and we believe that it will heal Daddy's diabetes, all the foods will be alive (meaning that all the nutrients are still there and nothing has been taken out by cooking it).
I am very excited and scared, first of all I am NOT a big vegetable eater, so my diet will consist of green smoothies and fruits that I like, BUT I am hoping to try a few vegetables to see if I like them (they say that this "diet"* changes your pallet). I have already found a few recipes that look good, like a spaghetti recipe...yummy...and exotic fruits that we want to try ;) Like I said I am excited, yet scared...SO PLEASE PRAY FOR ME!
You are probably wondering why in the world I am telling you all this, well I said all this to say that while I am on this raw food I am not going to be on the internet, I want to focus on my relatioship with Christ and my family. I feel that the computer has been taking up much of my time that I could have been using to serve the LORD and my family. I will get back on here after the 30 days are up (I may continue to go raw for 60 days, we'll just see how that goes) I will let you all know how it went, how I felt and feel and such. I am really excited to see what kind of journey with the LORD this will be. I crave your prayers, I know this first week will be VERY hard
See you on August 10th. 2010

Love,
E aka P31WIT (1 Thess. 5:14-24 & 2 Cor. 12:9-10)


*I don't like calling it a diet because it is suppose to be more like a medicine

Dear Daddy, THANK YOU & HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Dearest Daddy,
I Love you so much, I don't think I could tell you how much! I know that some people don't understand you, people have looked from afar and judged us...but I saw everything as it "really" was, I saw what they did not see in you ...a man of God, a strong tower for us to lean on, a little Christ. You show us everyday what it means to be a Christian and that is all the LORD commands is to be a "little" Christ. I don't care what others think, I only know what I see and I only care what the LORD thinks...I know that you are a special man, God put you here for a reason and one was to raise us kids in the admonitions of the LORD and you not only did so, but you did it alone (well with the LORD's help, but I meant without a helpmeet). When others looked down on you at times, I think God saw that you were being real with people, being transparent, where others lived superficial lives covering up their imperfections, and I think he has blessed you for carrying his name and showing people that we don't have to be perfect to become or be a Christian, it is only through Christ that we can ever be anything, we must ask Him for guidance in our lives. That is what you have showed me and that is one reason I am one of God's children, because of you. I am very blessed to have someone I can trust with my desires, my secrets, my love & my heart. You do have friends who do love you and understand you, they know that you are a special man, they know as well as I that God is working in and through you and that the LORD always completes the work he starts! You are a work in progress. I hope that you can teach your grandchildren one day (hopefully soon) the same things that you have taught me, through your actions, words and deeds, just as you have Brooke, Noel, Foster, Rachel & I.
Remember I love you VERY VERY much and I am proud to call you DADDY!!! Happy Birthday!
Love,
Woo <3 (1 Thess. 5:14-24 & 2 Cor. 12:9-10)

Happy 15th Birthday!!!

My little sister Rachel is turning 15 today. WOW, how the years do fly...I remember going to the hospital and seeing her for the first time, the day she came home and the first time I got to hold her. She was my baby sister.
Now she is all grown up she thinks for herself (oh definately), she thinks she can do anything a guy can (which is just about true), she's easy going and has a personality of her own, she doesn't take it to well when you are superficial (and believe me, she knows when you are being superficial). Once you have her as her friend, I would suggest you keeping her cause she's very loyal and she will fight whoever hurts you. Unless of course you are the one that hurt her and even then she is loyal, and quietly stands by until you realize that you have hurt her. She makes you laugh and she always has a ready smile, just PUH-LEASE don't ever make her mad unless you wanna see a REAL read-headed temper :P (sorry Rachel I had to tease you a lil bit). I Love you so much (you really won't ever know how much). I hope we can spend a lot more time together, I have really enjoyed the past few days sitting and talking, laughing and watching movies together, you are really growing up into a fine young lady...Mamma would be proud of you, I wish she were here to say that herself, but I guess I'll just have to be her delegate. LOVE YOU LOTS LIL SIS and Happy 15th Birthday
