Years ago while having the opportunity to teach Early Childhood Churchtime, one of the children’s favorite songs included a verse noting that “Life without Jesus was like a donut….there is a Hole in the middle of your heart.” Taking time each day to center yourself and be with your spiritual connection can fill your heart, relax your body, and calm your mind.
Let this cartoon inspire you to mindfully eat your next meal. Start by giving thanks for all the hands that it took to get this food to your plate. The growers, the harvesters, the grocery store owner, the checkout person, the cook, etc. Next open up your senses to notice the colors of your food, smell the aromas of your food, eat slower than you might normally to enjoy the texture and flavor of each bite.
