Home Made brings Comfort

Comfort foods may be consumed to positively pique emotions, to relieve negative psychological affects or to increase positive feelings.  Comfort food consumption has been seen as a response to emotional stress, and consequently, as a key contributor to the epidemic of obesity. Studies suggest that consumption of comfort food is triggered in men by positive emotions, and by negative ones in women. Wikipedia notes

Seems like everything eventually is reduced to a psychological equation but as for me it is my appetite that longs for comfort food.  Now I must admit I get emotional when I think about certain foods but other foods just turn me off.  

Over the years my taste has evolved to the point where I now like some foods I used to dislike.  At present I like about 60% of what is considered to be edible foods (I exclude things like snails, squid, grasshoppers and other tidbits).  The basic purpose of food is nourishment but it also provides the secondary benefit which is comfort.

There is that glorious feeling of having satisfied ones appetite and the knowing you have fueled the body for further service.   This brings comfort to the soul and peace to the mind. 

Metaphorically speaking the Word of GOD is spoken of as being food, albeit food for the soul and spirit of man.

Psalms 119:105 Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

This applies to every man that has drawn the breath of life. If you are breathing, this verse applies to you, and if the Word of GOD is excluded - - you will be malnourished.

I had a dog and as far as I know he never tasted his food, he just scarfed it down when he could have enjoyed it by taking his time.

In order to get the most benefit from the word of GOD it pays to take ones time, chew it slowly and let it comfort you. You are surly missing one of life’s great pleasures if you haven’t been comforted by GOD’S Word.

Jesus said; John 6:48 I am the bread of life.   John 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever.

Isaiah 55:1-2 "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come; buy wine and milk without money and without cost.  Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.

Truly GOD’S word is comfort food for your soul.

It was early Christmas morn I was up but not awake

The coffee helped a little for I had food to bake

The turkey was defrosted and the giblets I did take

For they belonged to the dogs for goodness sake


I washed them clean liver, gizzard, heart and neck

I even threw in the tail thinking what the heck

Besides we would never eat it, I ain't no redneck


All in the pot, heated to a boil soon it would be in a dog

At last I can sit and rest though I should go out and jog

The pot doth boil cooking the meat and it begins to swell

How long will it take to cook through and through I cannot tell'


Then a scratch at the door and a whine by one, no two no three

I had heard that sound before those dogs were warning me

 Come and open the door


Something was wrong but I was too tired to get up and see

What ever it was - - it couldn't concern me

but the whine was now a howl

I went to the door and three dogs rushed in and pointed to the pot

Their pitiful moans caused me to get up and walk to the stove


And behold the giblets were burned to a crisp not fit for a dog

Their heads hung down no wag in their tail only a forlorn wail

Each in turn looked sadly at me and left me alone scraping the pot

They being downcast, looking so sad, for dry dog food was all they got


Merry Christmas to you - - and to all your pets

Required or Else!
It was on the eve of the 24th of December. Christmas Eve for those who can remember the past. It took many years to gain this great victory starting back before Robert Ingersoll. Ingersoll the great orator who could put down any who considered themselves to be what was then called a Christian.

Of course that was before we atheists won victory over these publishers of fiction. Now there is a great punishment for even reading about the past and including the name Yahweh or the name of Jesus Christ within that study.

I can’t remember when I have heard the name of God used even as a curse word. There has been total eradication of any thoughts of a divine creator. No thoughts of Christianity occurring in any minds.

Those were happy days until the void was filled with a violent religious group that took over and established their own belief system with their own laws under which no unbelievers were allowed to live. Whereas I once was allowed to be an atheist now I am required to believe in a God that someone invented.

Off with their Heads!
If I refused to convert I would now be dead for that is the law. You either believe or are dead.

While I still don’t want there to be a Christmas Eve I do wish there was one for that would mean there were Christians who would act as a bumper between us unbelievers and the Irrationals that now control us.
We should never have fought Christianity and brought them to the weaken position where they were destroyed as a faith by the Irrationals.

If I was allowed to think I would remember when there was a Christmas Eve instead of the new calendar which only refers that day as one of the days of the year, as another day on which I must attend the place of worship of the made up Deity. Our shout of victory over Christianity was short lived and no longer do we curse Christianity.

Written by a Former Atheist which dares not to speak ill of the new required religion like he did of Christianity.
