Snacks for Quick Energy (repost)
Rasins and Nuts a great Snack
Fresh fruit is wonderful for
a snack, but do you always have it available at all times?
If you are a working person
on the job, or a student at school, you may find fresh fruit difficult to carry
When I was a teen age girl,
there were times during the month, when I felt extremely weak and so very

and my complexion was always pale after a very debilitating health problem when
I was about 12.
Too many silver fillings
caused my liver to rebel and my skin turned brilliant yellow.After about a month, I was better and able to
return to school but continued to be weak.
My mother decided that she

precious snack and enjoy a quick fix of energy.

your favorite scripture verses printed on them. Here are a few good ones!
Always practice Gratitude:Psalms 100:4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Are you anxious?Hebrews 13:5Be content with such
things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
