Soul Food Monday - An Inspirational Link-Up #48

Man is the soul that uses the body as an instrument of self-expression.

Hola Readers! Hope this morning everyone is having a great rise along with a BIG appetite for life where ever in the world you may find yourself today. A life filled with excitement and prosperity!   Acknowledging first that we are more than just a body is a good start to healthy wholeness.  Let's take time to feed the soul. We feed our bodies with healthy foods to get enough energy and nutrients for optimal growth and development.  We feed and stimulate the mind with books, movies, plays and games for personal and creative development.  The same principal applies to feeding the soul.  It is just as important to feed the body as it is to feed the soul!  After all, the soul is the core of who we are!  It is who we are.  My own experiences of honoring my soul has helped me make this connection with my very soul.  And my life is so much richer in so many ways I could not have even imagined.  This is why I refuse to believe that we are just here to work, eat, sleep and die.  Yes, these are inevitable experiences we live as human beings, but we are spiritual beings as well.  So join me every Monday with a different food for the soul.
I've seen too many people express, indirectly, how their Mother is a burden too them.  Showing over and over again how their Mother is way down on the priority list right after friends, work, football games, a party, movie, a book or even just watching T.V.   Did I mention football games?  Perhaps I'm sensitive to the topic because I lost my Mother when I was 18 and all I can think of is if she were alive I would let her know just how special and valuable she is to me.  So it really pisses me off to see other people push their Mothers to the sideline.  Perhaps they don't see the damage they're doing to their own lives by doing so.  It just hurts me when I see it, especially with my own children.

What's inspiring you this week?


  1. Hello Mayra,
    What a beautiful theme! Being a parent to 3 little ones, I pray they will understand how much we love them and how much we want to point them to Christ! I'm thankful that I can take care of my mom. "Nana" as we call her, lives with us. She is slowing down and doesn't want to live alone so she is permanently with us now. It is a blessing but she also can drive me crazy ;)

  3. Mayra,

    This post definitely resonates with me, because my mother is my everything. She knows this, she knows she can come to me for anything, and I am her fiercest protector. I love that little lady with all my heart, and because of it my children, ABSOLUTELY adore and love her. My husband has the same attitude towards his mom, in his mind mothers can do no wrong...even if they are at fault. ;) Our children's attitudes towards me, reflects our attitudes about our mothers.
