Food Revolution

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. What an amazing show.

Jamie Oliver is a renowned British chef who revolutionized school lunches in Great Britain.

Now he’s taking on Huntington, West Virginia – a town that has been labeled as America’s Unhealthiest City – encouraging and educating the town about the way they eat and how they can eat better to improve their health and to save their lives.

Clean Sweep

Spring cleaning made a lot of sense for centuries. When homes were heated with wood or coal, the winter heating season brought a build-up of soot and ash on walls, furniture, and fabrics. Spring cleaning marked the end of the heating season, when the entire house was aired and scrubbed clean, when windows could be opened and the winds of spring would blow through the house, refreshing it.

Feed My Lambs, Tend My Sheep

For more than a week, the same message kept coming to me. It arrived by four very different avenues and has echoed in my prayer life and in my heart. It is the familiar passage in the 21st chapter of the Gospel of John, verses 15 through 18, in which the resurrected Savior asks Simon Peter three times, paraphrasing, “Do you love Me?” Each time, Peter answers, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.”

This week, I heard Jesus asking me over and over, “Gregg, do you love me?”

And They Said It Couldn’t Be Done

After eating chili and peanut butter sandwiches, they each grabbed a chocolate cupcake and ran around the church gym, playing and running and playing some more. A friend stopped me at one point in just a panic. “Have you see their shirts?” Another one came up to me, “They’ll never come clean. Chocolate just doesn’t come out.” Another one said, “I don’t know how you’re staying so calm.”

Organizing the Boys’ Room

I’ve been looking for a way to organize the boys’ toys. What we were using was a big Rubbermaid bin. But it was so deep that for Jeb to even be able to access any toy that wasn’t on top, we had to lay it on its side. They also didn’t even know what was in it – so they never played with anything.

In our church nursery, there are two shelves that are made from cubes that have cloth drawers. I’ve always admired how the shelves look, but I didn’t think too much about them until my first Sunday working the nursery. I discovered that those cubes hold an amazing amount of stuff!
