  • We all know the story of the elves and the shoe cobbler. The elves would visit the shoe maker after he went to bed. The next morning, he would awaken to dozens of pairs of shoes made by the elves.
    His labors were lightened by the kindness and thoughtfulness of his nighttime visitors.

Cauliflower also provides 10 percent of your daily folate needs and 8 percent of your dietary fiber requirements. It is very low in sodium and has no fat or cholesterol.

  • Lately, I’ve been pondering the story Jesus told of the lost son, or what’s more commonly called the parable of the prodigal son.
    The son demands his inheritance from his father, which is basically him telling his dad he wishes him dead, and then takes the money and runs far away, squandering his wealth on wild living.
    When he ends up broke, he finds a job feeding pigs and finds himself so hungry that he longs to eat the pig food.
