10 Foods That Boost Your Metabolism
I came across this list below on Facebook. It gives much more detail, but it's not a diet I could ever choose to follow. It's just not simple. I don't care for many of these foods. Preparing meals aisn't that simple. Eating isn't that simple. There are so many factors at play in the meal game.
1. Hot peppers
2. Whole grains: oatmeal and brown rice
5. Coffee and green tea
6. Apples and pears
8. Citrus fruits
9. Foods high in calcium
10. Omega-3 fatty acids

Oh that rugged cross, My salvation. Where Your love poured out over me. Now my soul cries out, Hallelujah. Praise and honor unto Thee.
Now my debt is paid. It is paid in full by the precious blood that my Jesus spilled. Now the curse of sin has no hold on me. Whom the Son sets free, Oh is free indeed.
-Hillsong, Man of Sorrows

If You can hold the stars in place, You can hold my heart the same. Whenever I fall away. Whenever I start to break. So here I am, lifting up my heart. If You can calm the raging sea, You can calm the storm in me. You're never too far away. You never show up too late. So here I am, lifting up my heart, to the One who holds the stars. ✨ -Stars ✨

THE TRAIN: At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. Others will step down over time and leave a permanent vacuum. Some, however, will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you all a joyful journey.
