Yes, You CAN have too much lobster

A Very Large Lobster

Good Morning, God!

I wouldn’t have believed I could ever eat too much lobster!  But, my Body made it clear that I HAD DONE JUST THAT!

Of course, it WAS a VERY large lobster!  Still, I realized that TOO MUCH is not a concept that OUR Society understands, let alone embraces.

Or, maybe it is just me, God.

Last night, as we dined at the beautiful -- prize winning -- home of a friend of a friend -- it came to me that YES, it is possible to have TOO MUCH.
Now, God, I would have THOUGHT that I knew that. But, the REALITY of it seemed almost to be a "Bodily Thing." Last night, as I WORKED at DIGESTING and PROCESSING the richness of the food and surroundings -- the idea seems to take on a DENSER and more REAL existence.
Hmm. 
I don't need MUCH, do I? 
Yesterday I saw a picture of the hut that Heidi Lum and her husband and two sons are going to live in this summer in Swaziland. 
The Lum family is going there -- to live in that rural area -- to help. They will be bringing help from Hawaii and churches in California.  Helping others is Part of Good Health. 
Our host last night is a nurse -- her husband, who was out-of-state helping his mother, is a doctor.  They too, are helpers.  You have a lot of Helpers on this Planet. Now, please, God -- help us ALL aspire to Help More -- and to Have Less.
