Stop and Smell… The Cucumber!

0614091324-01Food is our fuel, like gas is our car’s fuel. Is it?!!

We run on the energy we get from food, that’s right, the way our automobiles run on the energy they get from gas, that’s right too!

But how does gas taste? Does our car enjoy it’s meal at the pump?!

For some reason, our experience of fueling is different than machines. We could have been designed just like cars, pump some fuel into our mouth and get going! No, God intended to make our experience totally different. It even has a different name: eating!

We eat to feed our organs and have energy to move and do what we need to do. We also eat to enjoy the taste of food.

Food, then, has two functions. Two dimensions. Right?

Today I thought about the usually forgotten dimension of food. The Third Dimension!

When was the last time you smelled your food? I mean intentionally smelled it. I know the smell of food forces itself on your senses and reaches to your nose from time to time. But once you have your plate in front of you, do you ever take a few seconds to “give it a smell” before you bury it in the belly?

I do, sometimes. Food smells good, trust me! Why ignore something extra that it has to offer you?

Stop and smell the roses is a very sound suggestion. Do it. But how about you stop and smell the cucumber as well? Smell your fish, raw and cooked? Smell the fruit (juice), smell the olive (oil)…?!

Food has three functions, three pleasures to offer. Take them all, and thank the Creator!

    I really like that……..you are so right……..
    as I contiually look at nature and all kind of things around me it reminds me more and more of our CREATOR, HE CREATED THE THREE DEMINTIONAL,qualities, functions or parts things all around for us to come to know who he is in a lot simpler ways that WE human beings can see, handle, and understand, same as the sun, it is a star, it heats, and in the same time it gives light the same one, tree is made up of three basic parts, the roots,trunk and leaves but it is one tree, same as egg, it has the hard shell the white part and the yellow part, but all this make ONE egg, us human beings are made of body, soul and spirit, all this tell us a lot about GOD the CREATOR/GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON (Jesus), GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT AND ALL ARE ONE as it is mentioned many times in the Bible.
    1John5:7
    For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
    another name for JESUS is THE WORD
    as of John 1:1
    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    have a wonderful day
