This was a wonderful weekend. Our son was home, so our family was complete. We had good food, with plenty for each blood type. Worship at our church included joyful music and an uplifting message.
We watched lots of basketball together - emotions running quite high at some of the close finishes. Our son did some chores that his Dad can't do right now because of the physical therapy. We laughed a lot around the dinner table. We also grieved together for some we know who are going through troubles right now.
We ate out for lunch on Sunday at a restaurant that serves meat and vegetables. Each of us was able to make choices that were good for our Blood Types. Yesterday afternoon I roasted a leg of lamb for my son and me. It seemed like an appropriate Easter meal. But I didn't forget my As. I baked fresh bread for them, and fixed black-eyed peas as well.
Our church had a communion service on Thursday night. The church that is affiliated with our school did a drama presentation on Friday night. There was an overflow crowd for church on Easter morning. All of the services drew our hearts to thank and worship God.
The activities of the weekend met my needs at all levels: my need for love from family and friends; my need for healthy food, and my need for a relationship with God. Eliminate any one of the three and I am not a healthy, whole person.
This Blood Type Website is about getting the right type of food and the right style of exercise for your Blood Type. As you know if you read my blogs, that is very important to me. I work hard to prepare food that is beneficial for all members of my family. I also discipline myself to get the exercise I need to keep my muscles and bones strong.
But if that was all I did, I would not be a whole person. I was reading this morning Jesus' words, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." It is just as important that I feed the spiritual part of my self with good food.
I have the same concern for people who only go to church once or twice a year that I have for people who only Eat Right for their Type when they need to lose a little weight.
Everyone who follows the BTD would agree that while it is sometimes hard to do, the benefits are well worth the effort in physical well-being. Discipline in your spiritual life, to study the Bible, pray, and fellowship with other believers is sometimes hard as well. But the benefits to your spiritual well-being are equally beneficial.
Eat right for your Type every day this week. But don't neglect to hug your family and to worship the God who created you. That is the only way to be a whole person.
