reasons, I have a hard time feeling full after eating a sandwich with no meat.
So, I've gotten used to just eating the mushrooms in restaurants when they are
part of an omelet or pizza, and I just learned not to think about it. You can't
afford to be squeamish when you are allowed to eat so little. The mushrooms with
lettuce and tomatoes, and chunks of cheddar and mozzarella, and a little ranch
on whole wheat, with olives on the side, made a tasty, filling sandwich. What do
you eat on a sandwich without meat? Take my poll in the sidebar at the right, and/ or send me recipes at my email below. Much appreciated!
But, this reminded me of my High School American Lit teacher who told us about everyday heroes...the Mothers who teach their children important things, the Fathers who stick around and support their children. He said we all have the ability to be heroic for someone in simple ways that will change lives. He was right. Oddly, a mother can not throw her baby in a dumpster, abandoning the child, but she can allow a doctor to rip the child from her and dispose of him for her.
Horrible I know, and I apologize for the gruesome language, but it is a gruesome matter. I am really sorry that I cant do more than mention it. This is my biggest regret, that I live in a country where abortion is legal and funded by my tax dollars, and I don't know what to do about it. I don't feel very heroic. But, then again, we learn coping mechanisms. Just like the policemen drilling to memorialize the dead from 9/11 a decade ago. They cope with the realization of our fear. Likewise, I cope with my medical problems with sitting in the car and eating mushroom sandwiches, among other unpleasant mechanisms. And, that is the heroic in our everyday lives, in doing what we often wish we didn't have to do, because it needs to be done. I haven't found a way to change the world, stop murder, or end terrorist threat, but I can eat my mushroom sandwiches and know that it will all work out because I did what I knew best.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
