The Legend Of Cauliflower (By Mar Bear)

Once upon a time there a flower named Cauli!
Cauliflower, One Head
 Cauli was a plain, simple, white flower that most people did not pay attention to. Cauli lived amongst a variety of other veggies, but although Cauli was very healthy and beneficial to one's body, Cauli usually got over looked. If there was a veggie tray, Cauli only got taken after all the other veggies were taken and even then, only by those that were really hungry. If there was a mixed medley veggie on people's plates, Cauli usually got picked out and scooted to the side while all the other veggies got eaten. At the grocery store, Cauli neary always got over looked by it's popular friend sitting next to it, Broc...everyone just loved that Broccoli fellow over Cauli and Cauli could never understand why. Broc had a stronger taste and let out a foul smell when cooked, unlike Cauli.
.
However, Cauli just kept being Cauli! Cauli didn't try lifting weights, changing it's color or do anything to get people to like it, it just kept being Cauli. Cauli knew it's value was not dependent on what others thought of it, but on it's creator who made it. Cauli was full of fiber, magnesium, potassium and vitamins, even cancer-preventing ones, that were good for you. Cauli was low in calories and sugar, yet still had protein to strengthen and fill you. Cauli was awesome and didn't really matter if the whole world saw it or not, Cauli would just keep being CAULI!!!
.
Then one day, without trying, people suddenly began to notice Cauli! Cauli was being used so rapidly should hardly even knew what to do! Cauli was being used to help people lose weight. Cauli was made into rice, Cauli was mashed like taters, Cauli was made into pizza crust, Cauli this and Cauli that! Cauli here and Cauli there...FINALLY everyone noticed Cauli...Finally everyone saw Cauli's value, buuuuuuuut there was nothing different about Cauli! Cauli was still, JUST CAULI!!!!
.
Cauli determined that no matter how popular, well known and well liked it got, it still had the same value as it did when no one wanted it and Cauli also determined that when some other vegetable replaced it and became the newest popular healthy rave, Cauli wasn't going to let it get it down, it's value was still the same, if the whole world loved it, if only a few people loved it, or if ONLY GOD, it's creator loved it, no matter what, Cauli's value was still the same. The value of Cauli was NOT dependent on those around it, but on the one that created it!!!
.
THE END!!!
.
You guys, I know this may seem like a silly story, buuuuuuuut I wanna tell you all something, sometimes you just may know how it feels to be CAULIFLOWER!!! Maybe you feel like a lump of cold cauliflower on somebody's plate. The leftover that no body even bothers to put in the fridge with the rest of the leftovers. Buuuuuuut can I tell you something, YOU HAVE VALUE!!! YOU HAVE PURPOSE!!! Nobody else may notice or see you, BUUUUUUUT GOD DOES!!! Annnnnnd you just keep on being YOU!!! The best YOU, you can possibly be! Don't make yourself into something your not to try and get noticed and liked, just be YOU!!!
.
You know, growing up, I was that lump of cauliflower!!! I was timid!  I was quiet! I was shy! I lived happily in my own little imaginative world with my stuffed animals, baby dolls and Barbies. I usually sat alone at lunch and often played alone on the playground at school. I had my few friends at church but never got noticed much when we went other places. BUUUUUT, I still new I had value. My mom ingrained in me that I was special, BECAUSE JESUS LOVED ME! My mom taught me ALWAYS to live my life to be pleasing to God, NOT man!!!
.
As I got older in life,  all of the sudden I was like the newest vegetable on the block!!! Everyone wanted to be my friend! (Minus a few haters!;) Buuuuuuuuut can I tell you all something???
I'm still JUST MARY!!!
I'm still just ME!!!
Sometimes, I'm quiet, sometimes I'm loud. Sometimes I make everyone laugh, sometimes I just sit back and watch. Sometimes I'm witty and occasionally I'm wise! Sometimes I'm thoughtful, sometimes I lose all my thoughts. And most of the time, I'm still living happily in my own little world. You can like me, you can dislike me! You can take me or leave me, I don't even care...I mean, I care, buuuuuut I really don't care!!!! My value is NOT dependent on being well known, or well liked, my value comes from God, my creator!!!
.
You guys, it's nice to be liked, buuuuuuut it's more important to be Godly!!!  Popularity is fleeting, everyone will love you till they find someone else. BUUUUUUT your God-given value is the same no matter what. Your value from God is not dependent on people or circumstances, it is not fleeting and it is not passing. Stop putting so much value on what people think of you, buuuuut on what GOD THINKS OF YOU!
.
The truth is that a person that lives their life striving to be pleasing to God, is usually pretty well like liked. I mean think about it, if you live to please God, your going to have a pretty strong character, but there will still be people that want to change you, buuuuut just be what GOD wants you to be.  So you guys, like the cauliflower, know your value, stay the same, be pleasing to your creator and know that your God sees you, whether the whole world does or does not. As my mom would always tell me, "Mary, you can't please ALL the people, ALL the time,  LIVE TO PLEASE GOD NOT MAN!!!
.
"When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him." (Proverbs 16:7)

Mary's BAMMMMM Fried Rice!!!

I haven't shared with you all a recipe in a superrrrr looooooooong time buuuut I believe that I simply can NOT shut up about my latest recipe creation...just CAN NOT!!!! Soooooo although I do not personally follow the keto eating plan, this recipe IS low carb and keto friendly. I'm a lean meat, high protein, high veggies and minimum fruit eating plan, its what works for me so I've come up with some really BOMB recipes!!!
.
The way I feel about cooking is this, anyone can make fattening food taste good, weeeeelllllll I told my sis that and she said, UH NOOOO, that's not quite true, buuuuuut any good cook can make unhealthy food taste good, buuuuuuuut I Mary Frances Ginty do not strive to be good, I strive to be EXCELLENT!!!
.
IF you think cauliflower rice is NASTY one of two things: 1. You ate it by a person that doesn't know how to cook it! 2. YOU don't know how to cook it!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! So the key is STEAM it and then saute it as well!!!
Sooooooo with out further ado...
.
MARY'S BAMMMMM FRIED RICE!!!
Ingredients:
2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger
2-4 cloves garlic diced
1/2 cup of diced ham
1/2 cup cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped green onions/chives
1/4 diced onion
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1 diced jalapeno
1.5 tablespoons oil (Your favorite)
2 teaspoons sesame oil (Adds amazing flavor but too much is TOO MUCH!;)
1-2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 bag frozen rice cauliflower medley
2-3 eggs
Directions:
Steam rice in microwave
Saute garlic and ginger in oils, about a minute or 2 till they start to brown slightly, then add the steamed cauliflower rice, cook together a minute, then add everything else. Once broccoli is starting to soften, add the soy sauce, add in raw eggs at the end till they are cooked. I like to get everything throughly cooked, then let the bottom brown, flip, let that part brown then...
BAM!!!
This stuff is SOOOOOO good!!! I'm gonna buy stuff tomorrow to make another batch up!!!I'm NOT joking, don't knock the cauliflower until you've given it a try....EVEN MY SISTER LIKED IT... annnnnd that says A LOT!!! Also, one of my sister in laws, who is doing keto, was really craving fried rice, she said her and her husband bought a frozen cauliflower fried rice from Sprouts and much to her disappointment, it was DISAPPOINTING!!! Buuuuuut she LOOOOOOVED MINE!!! What does Sprouts have on an ITALIAN GIRL??? Nothing, besides a BUSINESS...ahahahahaaaa!!!
.
*I just wanna say that it's hard for me to actually give directions for cooking cuz I just kinda do it...buuuuuut hopefully get the jist!!!
.
*Also, you can add in lots of other veggies if you want, these are just the ones I like. Carrots and peas are always good, some people like mushrooms and water chestnuts. You can also do more on the meat or all chicken or all ham or pork...WHATEVERRRR! And if you don't like spice you may wanna leave out the jalapeno or just half...I looooooove the added kick tho!!! Yuuuuummmm!!! Oooooh also, you can make this without the cauliflower rice by using 2 cups of your favorite already cooked rice instead, or even quinona instead, which is a healthier grain that is also very high in protein!

*Also, I don't ACTUALLY measure anything...so it's about that much oil, could be a little less, I just kinda eyeball JUST enough!!! LOL Also, I season to taste as I cook with salt, pepper and Montreal Steak seasoning. I'm a HUGE spice person! No blah food in my kitchen!!! :)
♥Mary Frances :)
Next week, I'll share with you all my Spaghetti Squash SPAGHETTI!!! Then my Stuffed peppers!!! Healthy cooking can be GOOOOOOOOD too!!! The key is flavor and SPICE!!!

Why Complain?!

"God is so good to me, I was singing this song the other day, He is so good to me, God is so good to me, I CAN'T complain!” Then I got to thinking about it and I thought, actually, I could complain. I mean seriously. There are quite a few things in my life that I would like to complain about right now.
.
Then something happened at work that same day that just really pushed me over the edge. I was very irritated. Just so incredibly annoyed. On the outside I had managed maintain my cool. However, on the inside, I was boiling mad. I was so hot I am surprised no one could see steam seeping out of me. There was nothing I could really do about it, except maintain my cool in silence.
.
For the most part, I try not to post all my problems on my blog or email them to all my friends. I try to keep a positive attitude. But after this, I decided to break that decision. I was going to blog about this irritation, mass email about it, text and about it. I was ready to vent my extreme annoyance to anyone and everyone that would listen.
.
However, as I was sitting there, preparing to vent, God ran a simple little question through my mind...
.
"Why complain?"
" Huh?" I heard it again.
"Why complain?"
" Well, because I am like really irritated and..."
"...But why complain?"
"Well, uh, you see, I uh, the reason why is because, uh..."
Then another question...
"What is complaining going to do?"
.
I thought about this for a moment, but came up with NOTHING. I knew that was the answer to the question; complaining would do NOTHING. It wouldn’t do me any good. Nor was it going to do any of the people I was complaining to ANY good. When I realized this God asked me one more time...
"Why complain?"
"I said ok forget it, I think I just changed my mind!!!"
.
You know, its so easy to complain. But really, WHY complain? Why be negative when you can be positive? Why bring another's spirit down, when you can help lift their spirit up? We all have those bad days, life isn't perfect, and sometimes we're just going to feel a little down. BUT why complain?
.
One of the best ways to get out of feeling down is by making someone else smile. There is a saying that says Happiness is like jam, you can't spread even a little, without getting some on yourself. I realized this the other day when I was upset. I went home from work and thought, hmmm.... what should I do? Really, I just felt like being a grouch. I went to the computer to check my email, perhaps I had received and enlightening email from a friend. Grrr ...Nothing but junk mail. Well, I guess I’ll blog. So I started writing something, it was just a silly, stupid blog, but it was funny. It made my friends laugh and you know what, making them laugh made me feel better.
.
Yeah, I still had the same problem, but I would have had the same problem if I had been complaining about it to. And by complaining about it to my friends I would have put that same frustration on them, instead I had caused them to laugh, which in turn made me smile also.
.
So why complain? Sometimes we just expect everyone to be our little venting station. We think that our family, spouse, friends, employees are there for us to complain to about all of life's little problems. Then we can't understand why people don't want to talk to us and make excuses to get off the phone. The truth is simple, no one wants to hear you complain. Yes it's okay to occasionally vent frustration. It's one thing to go to a friend and say that you have something that you really need to talk to them about. That you need their advice, prayer or just some encouragement…
.
It's another thing to just complain.

"My husband just can't pick up after himself. No one at work appreciates me. The neighbor's next-door need to mow their lawn. I deserve a raise. My brother ate the last of my favorite cereal. My sister used the last of the cinnamon vanilla creamer. My wife always burns the toast AND her coffee is weak." Sometimes, I just want to look at people and say, "I DON'T CARE!!!" (Famous Mary Line: I don't care, I mean I CARE, buuuuuut I don't care!!! AHAHAHAAAA!!!)I am not trying to be rude, we could all sit around and talk about our frustrations, but, WHY?! WHY complain?
.
I heard a preacher once tell a story about how someone at his house had left the water running while watering the plants. He said that he was very annoyed when he went out and saw the water running down the street. It was wasting water and he was going to have to pay the bill. He said that he knew who had left the water running. He knew where she lived and he knew that if he chose to he could go over to her house and really let her have it for not turning off the water. If chose to, he could really ruin this woman’s day. However, he says, “You know what I did? I turned off the water.”
.
I think sometimes in life we need to learn how to just “Turn off the water” If it really bothers you, that your husband leaves his clothes on the floor, just shut up and pick them up. Buy some more creamer. Eat a different cereal. Make your own coffee. I’m NOT saying that when we don’t like something we never have to say a word about it. But if you really do have a constant problem, you should try talking directly to that person and not the rest of the world.

I got to thinking about it a little bit more, the whole complaining thing. I realized that we would probably get a lot further with resolving our problems, if we spent as much time in prayer, talking to God about our problems, as we do complaining to everyone else about our problems. In the Bible it says that there was a woman named Hannah who was barren in her womb. Her and her husband could not conceive children and because of this she was very sad. The Bible says she literally grieved in her heart, that’s how badly she wanted a child.
.
“Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? Am not I better to thee than ten sons?” (1 Samuel 1:8) There was nothing Elkanah, her husband could do to solve this problem. However, I like what Hannah does next. “And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.” (1 Samuel 1:10) What did she do? She talked to God about it. And talking to God about her problem got her a whole lot further than complaining to her husband about it. “…and the LORD remembered her. Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD, ” ( 1 Samuel 1:19-20). God heard her and He answered her prayer.
.
The honest truth is that often times we as humans might not really want to hear about the things that are bringing you down. Its not that we don’t love each other, but, we’re only humans. There are some things, that, aside from praying, there is just nothing I can personally do to help a person. However, 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” Talk to God about your problems. He REALLY does care.
.
So the song runs through my mind just one more time. God is so good to me; He is so good to me. His spirit came to me and gave me the victory; God is so good to me I CAN'T complain! Well, actually, I still could, I mean, there are still quite a few things in my life that I would like to be different. I am still single, more money is always nice,  I really want that one jacket, that one camera, and oh, irritating people are still everywhere.
BUT, then I think about God's goodness.
.
I was raised in truth, I am surrounded by family, I have the Holy Ghost, God forgave me of my sins, I go to an awesome church, I have a pastor that watches out for my soul and isn't afraid to preach the truth, I HAVE A JOB, the bills are getting paid, I have tons of cute clothes, I have friends galore, I have good fellowship, laughter overflows my heart, I have joy that fills my soul, and the list goes on and on and on. ♫Sing it one more time♫ God is so good to me, He is so good to me, God is so good to me, and I’m NOT going to complain!♫
.
...Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
 (Phil. 4:8)

Perfection 101

Yesterday, we talked about THE PERFECT MAN!!! (Refresh your memory HERE) "There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil." (Job 1:1)
.
 As we learned yesterday, the Bible says that Job was PERFECT!!! And if you don't believe me, I CHALLENGE YOU, to argue with God on that...or maybe that's not a good idea!!! Anywayz...
.
Have you ever wanted to be perfect? I mean, lets be real, I think we all have. Of course we say we don't because it seems like an impossible thing to achieve. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut what if I let you in on a little secret, WHAT IF told you, that  you could be perfect?
.
Your probably thinking, really Mary? That's an impossibility, I mean, you may be Mary and all, buuuuuuuuuuut you don't actually have any super-power secret to make us be perfect? Weeeeelllll maybe I do!!! You say, besides, no one is perfect but God. And I would say to you, Hmmmm… where'd you get that from? Does the Bible ACTUALLY SAY THAT no one is perfect. Well you say, I don't know exactly where but that's what my mom always said!!! (Well my mom sure did;) I would say to you, well THINK, try and pull a scripture out of your head that alludes to non-perfection in us. 
.
And you will say, well the Bible says all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, OR perhaps, None is good but God, etc... BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT NONE of those scriptures actually use the word PERFECT...HMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Weeeeeelllll Mary, you already told us yesterday that the Bible says Job was perfect, soooooooo I guess that means Job and Jesus were the only perfect men, there's no way the rest of us can ever be them!!! Hmmmmm… You say it's impossible to be perfect???? Hmmmm…
.
If perfection is not a possibility for us, then WHY does God tell us to be perfect???? " Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:48)
.
Why would God tell us to be something that is impossible for us to achieve??? Maybe because being perfect is ACTUALLY NOT IMPOSSIBLE!!! Perhaps God's definition of perfect is different than our human perception of it. As humans we think of PERFECT as having absolutely no weaknesses or mars on our bodies. The perfect person has no struggles, no negative tendencies. Webster defines perfect as being entirely without fault or defect: flawless
.
 However, according to the King James Bible Dictionary, Perfect means to complete, to do or make through, to carry to the end. In Job 1:1, where it says that Job was perfect, it also goes on to describe more of him. that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil." (Job 1:1) After the Bible says Job was perfect, it goes on to say what I believe is in God's eyes perfection. He was upright, he feared God and he eschewed evil. 
The Biblical definition of upright is: Honesty; integrity in principle or practice;
The Biblical definition of Eschew means: to flee, shun and avoid evil. And to fear God means a specific sense of respect, awe, and submission to Him.The perfect man was upright, he feared God and eschewed evil.
.
How to be perfect 101
1. Be Upright (Be honest live with integrity, in business, socially and in family dealings)
2. Fear God (Respect, honor and submit to  Him)
3. Avoid Evil ( Don't take your Holy Ghost into compromising situations, when you see evil look away and if it comes to you walk away from it, don't embrace it.)
YOU CAN BE PERFECT!!!
Does any of those three things really seem that hard to you??? Well, maybe if your THE DEVIL, but if you really, truly love God, those three things should just come naturally to you. Do I have a super power to help one be perfect? ACTUALLY, yes, I DO!!! It's called THE HOLY GHOST!!!
Think about it, Job was a perfect man, and he didn't even have THE HOLY GHOST living inside of him. How much more can we be perfect when we have the precious gift of the Holy Ghost. "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you..." (Acts 1:8)
And Job being perfect doesn't even mean that God never had to discipline him. In Job 38 God completely tells him up!!!  "Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me."
.
And because Job was perfect, he changed his tune with God. Pefectible means having the capability of becoming or being made perfect. Are you perfectible? Are you willing to let God work on you? Are you willing to obey the Holy Ghost when conviction grips your heart? Are you willing to make the changes God requires of you to become perfect? 

"But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." (James 1:4)

.

We all have faults and weaknesses, we all have our struggles. A perfecter is one that makes perfect. God is our perfecter. God is the one that smooths out our folds and wrinkles, He is the one that puts on the finishing touch to his masterpieces. Not ourselves, not others but God alone is the one that finishes and completes us to make each and everyone of us perfect. 
"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6)
.
 No one's perfect, they say you can't be perfect...ACTUALLY YOU CAN!!! Not humanly perfect, BUT Godly perfect. Perfected means finished and completed. We strive to live perfect down here, upright, fearing God, avoiding evil. Then only when we leave this world behind and go to our perfecter, will we truly be PEREFECTED!!!  
FInISHED.
.
COMPLETED. 
.
PERFECTED.
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7)

.
If only the will of God was as simple as a trip to the store, wouldn't that be nice??? Buuuuuuuuut hey, also kinda boring and probably not as special OR exciting!!!! 
.
Anywayz, back to the Bible's perfect man, besides Jesus...
When I talk about THE PERFECT MAN: I'm talking about an actual man that lived. Quite a few years ago, at the Bible College I attended at a local church across town, I had a teacher, Brother Brown from Avondale, that challenged us about no one but God being perfect. HE was teaching us on Job and he read to us, "There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil." (Job 1:1) I paraphrase but he said to us that there was one perfect besides God and it was Job. He said that the Bible says Job was perfect, I didn't decide he was perfect, God did, and if God said he was perfect, then HE WAS PERFECT. 
.
I recently brought that lesson up to a group of friends. We were standing around talking and someone brought up something petty, but not a big deal, they had done that they wished they hadn't and then someone else was like, well you know, NO ONE'S PERFECT! Someone else says, yeah only God is perfect. I immediately remembered what I had learned all these years ago and I was like, weeeeeeeeeeellllll ACTUALLY, the Bible says that JOB WAS PERFECT!!!  Everyone just kinda looks at me, I'm like really it does, I CHALLENGE YOU to argue with God! Its right there you guys in Job 1:1, JOB WAS PERFECT!!! Everyone just started laughing, okaaaaaaaaay your right Mary!!! I'm like, WEEEEEEEEEEELLLLL, that's what Bro. Brown told us in class....I don't know if I woulda actually figured that out on my own accord...Buuuuuut I do listen in class!!! Hee, hee!!!
I may not be perfect...
 buuuuut I know who was!!! 
(Join me tomorrow for Part 2: How to be perfect! And yes really it is possible I mean, heeeeeeyyyy...just look at...Oh snap...I better stay humble!!! Hee, hee!!!;)
♥Mary Frances :)

.
P.S. Warning: If you are striving to be OR wanting the perfect man, please take note THAT he may come with a lot of tests, all your kids may die, all your possesions may be lost, he also may come with boils, and as his wife, you may tell him to die!!! Jus sayin!!! AHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
