One Tip, One Story

Monday, December 10, 2012

I've got one tip and one story for you that I hope will bless you. I can't take credit for either, since two Facebook buds posted them, but I wanted to share them with my SP buds because I found one interesting and one encouraging.
Baby Carrots - The following is information from a farmer who grows and packages carrots for IG, METRO, LOBLAWS, etc.
The small cocktail baby carrots you buy in small plastic bags are made using the larger crooked or deformed carrots, which are put through a machine that cuts and shapes them into cocktail carrots – most people probably know this already.
What you may not know and should know is the following:
Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots, they are dipped in a solution of water and chorine in order to preserve them (this is the same chlorine used in your pool.) Since they do not have their skin or natural protective covering, they receive a high dose of chorine. You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your fridge for a few days, a white covering will form on the carrots. This is the chorine, which resurfaces. At what cost do we put our health at risk to have esthetically pleasing veggies?
Chlorine is a very well-known carcinogen, meaning it causes cancer. Please pass this on to as many people as you can. I’ll never buy them for veggie dips again!
"Nothing is Impossible to HIM...
A young man working in the army was constantly humiliated because he believed in God.
One day the captain decided to humiliate him before the troops. He called the young man and said, young man, take the key and go and park the jeep in front. The young man replied, I can’t drive. The captain said, but then ask your assistance from God! Show us that He exists! The young man took the key and walked to the vehicle, praying the whole time. As a result, he parked the Jeep to the place PERFECTLY well, as the captain wanted. The young man came out of the Jeep and saw them all crying. They all said together: we want to serve your God! The young soldier was astonished – he wanted to know what was going on. The captain was crying, and he opened the hood of the Jeep, showing the young man that the car had no engine. Then the boy said, See? This is the God I serve, the God who gives life to what does not exist."
SO NOW THE QUESTION. Do you know Him? The God who gives life to what does not exist? The One who considered you to die for? Do you want to? You can. Here's one way:-
