Hello Beloved! Here we are with recipe #5 in our 13 week series of healthy, delicious, no frills meals to help you build and sustain your temple. This week's recipe mixes three simple ingredients to provide a naturally sweet and hydrating snack or dessert: watermelon salad.
We love to keep things simple, because we have found that simple is more readily sustainable. Sustainability is key, because we are running this race until the end! As you prepare and enjoy this recipe, we invite you to think about the simple things you may be discounting as you seek to live a life that honors Jesus Christ. Sometimes we struggle to rightly deal with our frailty in light of His splendor--we come to believe that in order to honor Him, we need this and that and everything that we currently do not have. But, the truth is, God has made it possible for us to honor Him in every season of our lives. It is possible because He has made it simple-- He wants us. We honor Him when we give ourselves away saying, "If You can use anything Lord, you can use me."
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
