Good Morning, God!
Well, replenishing is taking longer than I anticipated! And it involves far more than I currently grasp. But, I’d like to share what I “know” so far . . . not so much with You, God, — to whom all is known — as much as with myself.
I shall start with my yellow palm which sits outside our front door. For months I had been semi noticing that it stayed yellow. It was not a vibrant green like my other palms. Finally I googled…Why is my palm yellow? Immediately, the response came back indicating that my palm was lacking magnesium! YIKES! Magnesium!
As soon as I read that I had the strong sense that I NEED MAGNESIUM TOO. (CLICK HERE for signs of possible magnesium deficiency.)
The palm came first. I mixed up a few tablespoons of epsom salts (magnesium chloride) with a gallon of water and dosed my palm. This is a photo I took 4 or 5 days later in which I could see that a formerly yellow frond was turning green! SO SOON? I had thought it was supposed to take weeks and only work on the new fronds….but…here it was!
And me? I’m finally taking ENOUGH magnesium . . . just like our daughter Suzanne has been urging me. I’m not turning green, but I am sleeping better. Seems magnesium is essential for over 300 biochemical reactions in our bodies. And it also seems most of us don’t get enough in our diet.
So, God, I’m thankful to be replenishing at least one key mineral. And I’m thankful that I am much more aware of the whole huge topic of replenishing . . . I’m going to need lots of help as I work on that.
