I have never so been appalled by the dog food industry and cats for that matter! The lies. Why? Money. Learning their food is filled with ingredients that cause cancer and many other illnesses made me review, research, and change to an all raw food diet.Feeding Raw diet I have owned 8 dogs in my life, known many others of course, and all of them died of cancer. ALL! That just turns my stomach! I want my pets to die naturally free of pain and live a happy, natural life! Don’t you? Can you just imagine if we had this info years ago the quality of life my pets would have had? Well, this month I decided for our family we are changing. Feeding raw diet It has been a wonderful choice and seeing my dog happier has been a Godsend! I am all about natural feeding with my horses, so why did I not get this with my dog? DAH!

Serving Size for your “Easy Raw Dog Food”:

*Special note: These are general guidelines, we are not trying to land a man on Mars. If your dog is losing a little weight eating the raw dog food and this is not desired, increase the amount you are feeding. If your dog is gaining weight on the serving size then cut back a little. In short, adjust the serving size of raw dog food depending on your dog’s age, weight, and activity level.

Bible Journaling, Peace, Ranch Life
Are you feeling overwhelmed by something today? Why is it some days seem like bad things keep piling up? A phone call, a text, news, prayer chain, things breaking down, on and on. The feeling of powerlessness and simply… overwhelmed by it all! Are you feeling overwhelmed by something today? “Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her warfare is ended, her iniquity is pardoned,  she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.” Isaiah 40:11 After reading this passage with a weight as heavy as the spring snow, comes another overwhelming feeling…peace. You see, by taking time in my bible reading and listening to what the Lord is saying takes the overwhelming negative stuff and turns it all into overwhelming peace. Why? God’s got this! He has the bad news, illness of others, death of a loved one, house or car falling apart, bills to paid. The Lord has all these worldly struggles but we so often carry the weight of the snow ourselves. So dumb! However, each time the bad comes we have a choice. Look at the first two words. Comfort He even repeats it, COMFORT. The Lord God is comforting His children by speaking tenderly. Our God is so personal demonstrating with a word that instantly brings peace. COMFORT! I love this! How does our God bring comfort? First through His word by reading it, accepting, and receiving every word as true. By a phone call from an encourager and someone who will pray your problem through. Simply waiting, crying out to God, and asking for peace in the struggle brings upon a little more peace. What have you heard or dealt with in just the last few days? What struggle? What did you do when you heard it or came upon it? Did you call a friend? How about going to your phone or computer and facebooking your problem? Maybe just wept and kept  it to yourself. All of these things are not bad but did they help? Did you carry this struggle throughout your day, week, or longer? I would say NOT, as I have done all the above! Rather than going to self gratifying answers, may I suggest once again turning to your Lord and Savior. Trust me, He has the answers. He says “the warfare is ended” it’s done! He has it taken care of. Our sins our even pardoned as the verse continues and even received double! Amazing good news! Do you see that? We need to look up when a struggle happens so the bad news can be turned to good by trusting in HIS ways and HIS timing. The Lord does not want us in an overwhelmed state feeling like we are stuck or up to our necks with problems we can’t escape. He wants us to experience freedom even in the tough times. The longer we stay in the struggle the less we can do for Him. If I am holding onto a problem, I can’t do the tasks of this ministry. My focus is on the problem vs. getting to His call on my life. When I am in a session with a child who is facing a major struggle, I am not able to be a good example of living in freedom with Christ. Therefore, when I am sharing Christ it isn’t as powerful as when I have prayed and given the problem to the Lord. overwhelmed cowboy Looking at his picture do you see a cowboy up to his neck with snow? Or do you see a cowboy enjoying looking over the top and seeing the LIGHT and being thankful it’s not over his head. It’s like the glass half full thing.  How do we deal with  life issues and what is given to us? Here’s a thought. Next time you experience an overwhelmed situation, look up. Get in the Word. Pray, talk to God letting Him know your pain and struggle. God doesn’t want you to carry the load He already has. He can melt that snow! Maybe not same day, or season even. But He will melt it! So call on Him, get rid of it so you can get back to HIS purpose for your day and life. Trust your God can bring an overwhelmed circumstances to overcoming! May you find the peace that passes all understanding, listen to his tender words, and embrace the word COMFORT in the world of overwhelming problems. Give it to Him and Get to work! Ultimately, He is given all the glory because you gave your struggle to Him and trusted Jesus to take care of your worries. We are getting into the Easter season…FREEDOM is celebrated! If you give  baskets to love ones, think about a basket of Hope, Freedom, and His Love! Giving HIS word, a bible, or a simple message of Hope in a card! Love deeper, talk sweeter, enjoy some quiet time with Jesus, Lee (new diffusers for your essential oils and other good things)
