Food for thought...........
29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. Gen 1:29
Could it be MORE clear?????????
Could he have given MORE SPECIFIC directions????????
Is he ever WRONG?????????
These are the questions that I use when explaining to my children that "BIG BROTHER" is TRYING to take away the rights of some farmers.
And we all KNOW that "some farmers" quickly trickles down to YOU AND I.
It was a sad day yesterday as we watched the polititians VOTE on S510 or as they like to call it: The "Food Safety Modernization Act"
One after another voted "aye" ...while few stood their ground and voted "no".
It was sad to watch this in real time while trying to explain to the children WHAT was going on.
"Why is it illegal to GROW food?"
"Why are they voting for that Mama?"
All questions that little minds should NEVER be faced with.
Growing, raising, trading, and selling food is a GOD-GIVEN right.
It is something that is a TIME TESTED tradition passed on from generation to generation.
Something that can really help humans to appreciate and WONDER at something that has been done from the begenning of time.
There is something wonderful that happens when you plant a seed in the dirt and with little effort ...it GROWS.
There is an appreciation that is gained... an APPRECIATION for LIFE.
Something that you cant BUY when you get your cucumbers in the vegetable isle at Publix.
These are lessons that GOD intended for us to learn, pass down , and cultivate.
Lessons that can't be REPLACED in the name of "food safety".
I mean really....an organic farm is illegal because they wont CONFORM to the FARMLAND security.
A government run farm is legal...even though they use pesticides, hormones, and mistreat their "livestock".
The answers to those questions they asked were easily answered.
We live by Gods laws....not man's.
No matter what BIG BROTHER says.
We use GODS example...we use HIS rules.
