I am one who balks at the prospect of making a resolution just because it's January, because I feel it's important to be regularly making new goals to improve throughout the year. And with each new thing I learn about, study, and eventually write about on this blog comes a sense of responsibility to make the associated changes myself.
One of Laura's posts particularly hit home with me, entitled "God is Bigger than a Free Range Chicken." Definitely humorous, but such a good and needed reminder. Sometimes I forget to think about these issues on such a simple (and profound) level. Sometimes I feel guilty about feeding my family things that aren't as healthful as I know they should be, even though quite often the problem is money-related (or the lack thereof). But Laura is so right: "Not able to make a meatloaf with grass fed beef? Raw milk too far outside your budget? Stop feeling guilty. Stop worrying. God knows your desires and your ideals for your family. He will bless your efforts to feed your family nutritious food."
And I love her reassuring words of wisdom: "God is big, bigger, biggest. Take all the complicated details out of the process of switching your kitchen to a real food kitchen, and just focus on going back to the basics – whatever that may look like for you right now."
