Peeling Back the Blessings in Life - They're Everywhere!

Peeling Back the Blessings in Life - They're Everywhere! - Even in the Banana
Let's be aware of the tiny blessings God has placed everywhere in our lives...

In the twenty years since the fall of Communism, bananas have become abundant in Budapest. 

But during the Communist era, my Hungarian landlady once rode a bus across Budapest and waited in a long line to get two bananas for her children. 

Peeling Back the Blessings in Life - They're Everywhere! - Even in the BananaHer story makes me wonder how many wonderful things I daily take for granted.

Let's take the simple banana. It isn't merely a sweet delicious treat that comes in a disposable, biodegradable wrapper. 
It also:
1. Provides energy.
2. Helps us relax due to its tryptophan (which converts to serotonin).
3. Helps regulate glucose levels and lower stress because of its Vitamin B6.
4. Helps lower blood pressure due to its low sodium and high potassium levels.
5. Helps us stay alert and focused also due to potassium.
5. Is a natural antacid.
6. Aids digestion because of its fiber content.

Everything God gives us has multifaceted blessings enclosed. So don't forget to thank Him for the small stuff!  Ephesians 5:20

  2. This is wonderful Gail. Thanks for reminding me of God's blessings within a banana. One of my favorite foods. I like the part that it comes with it's own biodegradable wrapper. Bonus! Thank you for your ministry. ~ Abby
