This week’s inspiration at Vessels of Clay Yoga:

From “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young

Let me anoint you with My Presence.  I am King of kings and Lord of lords, dwelling in unapproachable Light.  When you draw near to me, I respond by coming near to you.  As my presence envelops you, you may feel overwhelmed by My Power and Glory.  This is a form of worship:  sensing your smallness in comparison to My Greatness….

Enjoy the radiant beauty of My Presence.  declare My glorious Being to the world!

(1 Timothy 6:15-16; James 4:8; Psalm 145:3-6)

Today’s Yummy Green Smoothie and Christ-centered Yoga for Tornado Relief!!!

Let's fan the flame and lift the Spirit....

Though the tornadoes that swept through the Midwest happened a couple of weeks ago, the need for help and relief is ongoing…To that end, my Christ-centered yoga business is offering two classes whose proceeds will all go to help the victims of that devastation.

There will be one All-levels/Hatha/Anusara flow style class on Thursday, June 9th from 10:45am until Noon at the Tri-Lakes Christian Church in Branson. Come to breathe, praise and worship our Savior, stretch, strengthen, sweat, relax, release, let go and let God in honor of those who are needing our help!!!

There will be a class for Seniors and/or those with Limited Mobility (a non-intimidating restorative class that is challenging but restful, and fun!!) the following Thursday, June 16th, from 10:45am to Noon, also at the Tri-Lakes Christian Church in Branson, Mo.

New students to Vessels of Clay Yoga, please leave me a comment so that I can get in contact with you about what to expect and what you need to bring. I am so looking forward to meeting you on the mat!

Admission to either class is a $10 donation; checks made payable either to Woodland Hills Family Church (with “Joplin Tornado Relief” in the memo line), or College Heights Christian Church (with “Joplin Tornado Relief” in the memo line).

Surprisingly Yummy!!!

And now….today’s Green Smoothie was a very pleasant surprise!  Isn’t it funny how you might plan something in your head for what you will have for breakfast (I was thinking maybe eggs with some greens and vegan cheese, but then realized, “oh MY-lanta, I have got to get to work on the computer…better have a smoothie instead for now…”)  Well, I call those moments God-divined, for when I have sought Him first thing, and He has fortified me to do what He has called me to do (like go work out before the day gets by me), He also often enables me to be flexible in my previously determined plans, amen?

And So.  Realizing I needed to sip a smoothie while I type a bunch o’stuff today before I have to go do a show, I opened the fridge to see what I could see…=-)  Grabbed some natural apple juice, some spinach and collards, some frozen peaches and some other stuff, and yum!!!  PLEASANT SURPRISE. Here is what is in my smoothie today:

1 Cup Natual Apple Juice (no sugar added, etc)

1 handful Baby Spinach, 2 Handfuls Garden Collards

1 Carrot

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (1/2 serving.  a serving is 2 scoops with my brand)

liberal sprinkling of fresh ground cinnamon

about 5 drops of Liquid stevia in English Toffee flavor (Sweet leaf brand)

about 2 handfuls frozen peaches (probably a cup)

To Make:

Pour apple juice into high speed blender (I have a blendtec.  It’s ok if you have a lower speed blender, it will just take a little longer and a few more whirs to juice the produce).  Add all the greens and blend until juice.  Add one carrot (cut).  Blend until juice.  Add frozen peaches, whey protein powder, cinnamon and stevia, and blend until a smoothie!  (I actually could have blended one more time as I had 3 or 4 small peach chunks, but that’s ok.  I am at home and I can spoon them into my mouth at will!)

Here is the deal: collards?!?  I know, right?!?  But actually, the slightly pungent flavor was a GREAT offset to the sweetness of the stevia and apple juice!  You know how tart/sweet and salty/sweet go so well together sometimes?  That’s how this was…and yet, it was definitely more on the sweet side, with tons of good health on top!!!

So “Cheers and Here’s”!  (Cheers and Here’s to you!)

How’s that for ReShaping It All?  Taking care of ourselves, taking care of our neighbors in need, and loving our God wholeheartedly.  Have a blessed day my friends!!!

With God as our right-hand man, how could we not?

Isaiah 41:13

For I am the Lord, Your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

3 John 1:2

2 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

We are the Church, One body, Many members, with many beautiful and different gifts and characteristics! Blessings to all of you!
