Tim Challies:  They Were Ready - "Preparation, I’m convinced, is one of the keys to discernment. In all my studies on discernment, this was the one thing that stood out above everything else."

Jason Gray via Ann Voskamp:  Caring for the Right Thing at the Right Time.  "In that moment I had also been offered a chance to create something beautiful myself: a generous response with the power to foster a culture of kindness, grace, and intimacy in our home. What work of art—be it a song, a book, or a film—can compare to this?"

For Your Health ~

Joybilee Farm:  You Need Kombucha.  "Glucuronic acid is not readily commercially synthesized, but the healthy human liver makes large amounts of it to detoxify the body.  In the liver the glucuronic acid binds up all poisons and toxins– both environmental and metabolic — and rushes them to the excretory system.  Toxin once bound by glucuronic acid cannot be re-sorbed into the system so we are rid of them. – Tom Valentine, Search For Health"

Fifty to Life:  How to make Beet Kvass.  This is something I'd like to try - fermented foods/beverages have great health benefits.  “is valuable for its medicinal qualities and as a digestive aid. Beets are just loaded with nutrients. One 4-ounce glass, morning and night, is an excellent blood tonic, promotes regularity, aids digestion, alkalizes the blood, cleanses the liver and is a good treatment for kidney stones and other ailments.”
