Better Left Alone ?

The lobster fishermen have arrived in front of our house now.

Every morning they check the lobster traps that they have set in the shallow water. There are bobbing red markers showing where they have been placed.

Lobsters are nocturnal scavengers ; they feed on debris at the bottom of the sea. They can grow up to several feet in length, but most are caught long before they reach that size.

Although I respect everyone’s need to make a living, and everyone’s taste in food, I choose not to eat lobsters.

God gave people specific dietary laws in the Old Testament, (Leviticus 11), and I follow those. God placed restrictions on ‘fish without fins and scales’ such as lobsters.

Internet sources report that members of the British Royal Family are banned from consuming crustaceans while traveling, because of the high rate of foodborne illness.

The pandemic that came out of Wuhan has given us all more of a chance to reflect on what food choices are healthy for humans .

Maybe we will stop thinking of ocean scavengers as luxury food items.

Some Christians, of course, will disagree with me, saying that God’s dietary laws are only applicable to Jewish people. (Acts I0:10)

Nevertheless, Jesus followed the food guidelines set out in the Old Testament, and so I follow them too.

I just wish that lobsters would be left alone, to do the scavenger work that God designed them to do.

  1. I believe that 1 Corinthians 8 also speaks about dietary choices, but I feel it’s better to read entire books of the Bible to get their full context 🙂 It’s also interesting that lobsters were thought of as a “poor man’s food” pre WWII, and not a delicacy at all (because of the scavenging factor). Interesting stuff 😋

    1. Thanks for sharing ! I was not aware that Lobsters were considered “poor man’s food’ before WWII, and now it is considered ‘rich man’s food’. The world is full of ironies. Thanks for your comment. 🤗

  2. Thanks Sally. It is refreshing to hear someone post this knowledge, especially a friend. It has become so rare, especially, and sadly, among Christians. It has been stated ad infinitum that “we are not under the Law,” that “we can eat whatever we want as long as we give thanks and pray over it,” that “food is different in our modern world and much more sanitary,’ and that “the feed we give the animals we process is far superior,” etc. In other words, “Thanks for the warning just the same Lord…”

    This IS the Word of God to which we are referring. God has a good reason for teaching us that which consists of a good diet and that which does not. He wants us healthy and strong. We should know this especially in these times, when one thing—a strong and healthy immune system—is keeping us from becoming a statistic. This is the way God planned it. He obviously thought of everything in advance.

    Thank you for honoring Him. Blessings to you.

      The ‘world’ certainly has some strange values. I so agree with you. God wants us strong and healthy, and with good immune systems.

    2. Hi Sally! Beautiful view which reminds me of some areas near where I grew up and I would regularly see local fishing trawlers and lobster boats loaded up with their lobster pots! Excellent how you put a proper perspective on this story not just the photo with beautiful perspective and composition but the idea that God gave us the knowledge we need in the Holy Scriptures to remain healthy and to select our foods accordingly! Funny thing, since when I was a kid I had a few sensitivities to foods not much but just mostly if I ate too much of one thing then I might get hives, but the only thing even to this day that trips my hypersensitivity or perhaps more my autoimmune system going into overdrive is crustaceans or mainly Crab and Lobster; but these are the only plant, mineral or vegetable that I can’t eat or I will suffer for it! So, don’t anyone tell me God didn’t have it planned right, these creatures being bottom feeders eat all the scrap, waste, dead or decaying matter on the bottom where there are mud sediments that contain many toxin producing microbes or bacteria mixed in with man caused pollutants as well, so not a sensible food to eat by any measure! Thanks for reminding us Sally and bringing the Holy Scriptures to bear on this matter!

      God of course knew which animals are scavengers, and , in his sovereign wisdom, he knew that the oceans would become increasingly toxic as people chose to abuse the beautiful world that He created as our home.🤗

    1. It is a fallacy that ranching is worse for the planet than growing grains, vegetables. Raising cattle increases the biodiversity of land whereas mono-cropping destroys the land and all that live on it.

  3. Any intellectual, emotional or spiritual discussion about food and what privileged society prefers to consume based on whatever religious and health beliefs, would do well to remedy a solution to help fight global poverty and feed the world’s starving. Allowing the poor and meek to starve is a choice by the wealthy, powerful and corrupt leaders we helped empower. Global hunger could be wiped out in a day if we choose to do so.

    1. Ah, Michael, I so agree with you !
      The differences in food availability around the world are so unjust.
      We catch seafood here, and it is secretly transported to some wealthy nations far away.
      At the same time, we have tremendous hidden hunger in our own community.
      I know this because of the people that drop by for tea ( during regular times) near the end of the month, when money is tight.
      Our ‘Food Bank’ is a secretive place. When I asked our Mayor where it is located, his worship did not know !
      I wish that some of the churches could be transformed to feed the hungry in our midst.
      Then, more people would pay attention to what Christians are actually supposed to be doing.🌷

    2. There is more than enough food in the world to feed everyone into obesity. Unfortunately, in many countries where the food is distributed, it is used as a weapon and/or horded. Many wealthy people give generously to feed the poor. I have often seen those in impoverished conditions preying upon each other. Please, let’s not blame the wealthy for the ills of the world.

  4. Just to let you know, the virus started because someone ate an under cooked bat (gross) that had been used, while alive, in the lab that created the virus. An unscrupulous individual sold that lab bat to a meat market where it was purchased, poorly cooked and then eaten.
    p.s., ‘Sally’s Pantry’ has a nice ring to it. People who pop by for tea could be discretely given a brown bag of food?

    1. Hi Melissa ! I like that idea very much. I have been looking for ways to feed hungry people in our community for a long time.
      There is shame surrounding hunger in our community, and there should not be.
      When I finally located our mysterious Food Bank, I found it located in a crumbling old building, in the basement.
      This forces volunteers, most of whom are older, to carry donations of food down steep steps.
      Users of the food bank are often elderly, single residents as well.
      ‘Sally’s Pantry’ is an excellent idea.
      Thanks for suggesting it.🤗

  8. Just a heads up in case you’re having a difficulty connecting Sally! Its all hit the fan for sure and still massive numbers of so called Christians are lame ducks and sitting deluded, not really caring and worse many are following the heretics like Joe Biden and Pelosi do! Antichrists.

    Brian Burch, president of the conservative nonprofit Catholic Vote, hit back by saying “millions of Catholics in the United States, including many within the archbishop’s own flock, are grateful for today’s executive order.”

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the church, a historic fixture in Washington, does not belong to the Episcopal bishop.

    “We don’t look into other people’s hearts and souls, and discern and judge what their faith is, why the president felt compelled to walk there, why he held that Bible,” Mrs. Conway told Fox News.

Focus on the intricate miraculous beauty is awe inspiring and healthy for the soul especially when not feeling too pleased or sure about the direction of the world although we know as Christians with genuine faith to trust in the Lord with all of our hearts and trust not our own understanding. I love the bird sanctuaries and some special hiking spots where I see birds and one where those 3 swans just appeared moving around from behind some pylons. St Francis had an obviously great appreciation for birds. I still have the injured dove here which is seeming to be on a path to full flying capability I pray but its in God’s hands I asked God to step in and that is the only real hope that it will fly again. 🙏 🙏

      7. Hi Sally! 🌷My dad and others used that off the top of my head, but isn’t that the only place something could sit? And there certainly isn’t any bottom of the head is there? But we know what they mean by that as to the other adage that means the same thing, the first thing that comes to mind or that I can think of! Oh for sure being focused on the multitude of positive and good that exists is the only way to fly; lol! The dove couldn’t get a full-fledged repair and it was mostly give it a place to sit quietly and heal letting nature take its course ad this was a blessing for this bird otherwise it would have been a midnight snack for the fox of coyotes. The issue is when this injury is completely healed will the position of the leading feathers of the wing what they call the leading edge of an aircraft wing induce normal lift with the proper airflow over the wing surface and not be creating drag or an imbalance with the other wing. I know a bit about aerodynamics as I couldn’t get into the flight program in the military. I tried all the branches and was acceptable with high marks in all aptitudes and standards except I have partial color blindness which scrubs a candidate from the get goes; they won’t give a waiver for that.. So I was accepted to an aviation university and was going along fine until i started having some inner ear motion sickness issue that wasn’t fun. I decided that general aviation wasn’t the best job for me and withdrew after a year. The program was both for engineering and flight training so it really sharpened me on various levels with aviation. I used to say to my dad this was a crummy thing something I wanted to do since a little boy I just can’t seem to get the opportunity for one dumb reason, and he would just say it wasn’t meant to be and be thankful you can do the things you are doing because you could be dead. I said yea dad what if the military pushed through and I was in some conflict and got shot down in enemy territory, I sure wouldn’t want to die like that and away from all my family. I was bit bit sentive and maybe worried; and maybe worried; so God knew what was to be the right direction for me obviously. Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with his feathers; you will take refuge under his wings. His faithfulness will be a protective shield.” I also recalled this verse but didn’t remember it well enough so I went searching and; “seek and you will find!”
        Let’s pray the little Mourning Dove have full flight soon because the time is approaching which will be the moment of truth! 🖖 🙏 🙏 🌟✨💫 🤗🖖❤🌹🌈🌞

Yea looking back the flying thing my inner ear issue like my dad was born with he suffered with in through his years in the Navy getting seasick but toughed it out for years! I thought back how when I was really considering being a pilot; what about when you are in bad weather and can’t climb out of it, and have to fight your way through it with the wind buffeting the aircraft, while it’s also being tossed around almost out of control, but on that, Adage Alert, “Razors Edge!” I think I really don’t like gambling to be honest and guys I got to know back in the day that went for the gusto or the whole enchilada liked risk and taking a gamble or, Adage Alert “a walk on the wild side!”

      But the symbolic light of the candles represents the miracle of good overcoming evil, and the light represents Christ.
      And the beeswax of the candles reminds us of how miraculously the sun causes flowers to grow, bees collect pollen from flowers, and turn it into wax, which can then be made into candles to give light.

I just before opening this message from you sent an amazing Dot that connected to the other blogger and now you consecutively! That is as you know always a profound mystery of God to me! Here is what I said to her; “Lots of beauty of life and photosynthesis going on in your lovely photo!” I had also sent with that note the exact same quote by MLK to her just moments ago with the life message! God is speaking to us continually in all these miracles and sometimes He gives us incentives or confirmation of our faith and love for Him! Your thoughts on the candles and the Bees are spot-on to me. In my community because I was the only one that made a beef or stink as to what the crony capitalists and crooked politicians were doing to the Bees with all the damage they were causing, totally unnecessarily devastating Bee populations, that were already suffering steep decline due to colony collapse disorder; and let alone they pollinate most of the vegetables, fruits and nuts we eat; nonetheless nobody else cared like I did so I ultimately was being called by the State workers in the area the Bee Man.
        Also, as far as candles go I see it like we are candles of God’s light the light of humanity burning in the darkness to express His love to us but for us to express it back but only for a short time as we know they are delicate flickering little flames that will be reaching their end; even like the good dutiful Beeutiful Bees! I have a little something you might have missed that I wrote and if you didn’t see it you will love this because of who you are as a wonderful woman and good soul of God’s, it’s even very “short and sweet,” like Bees honey!

And then they fly away to the next flowers or I place my hand next to it and the Bee walks calmly back on them. I guess this qualifies me as a Bee Nut! Not just the Bee Man!!! 🤣😉👍🙏 🙏

        I read your article on the Beeutiful bees. It is well-written and focuses attention on the important role they play in the world.

        It is moving to read about how you relate to the tiny busy friends.
        I see them working busily in my garden in the summers.

        We have only one store on the island here that sells beeswax candles, but I buy them regularly because I enjoy them so much.
        Bees also play an important role in Christian symbolism.

        I used to sing the Easter Exsultet during the Easter Vigil, with the Priest’s permission, because it is quite long, and he didn’t want to sing it himself, and there is a reference to honour the bees that make wax for the Easter candle.
        I am happy that you like bees. I really like them too. 🤗🌷

      3. 🤗🌷 Hi Sally! This is indeed great news to know I’m in contact here with someone that appreciates Bees as much and who has taken them into account so genuinely and made great use of their bounty that transfers to the bounty that the Lord gave us to give thanks for, none of which would be possible if not for the special and industrious Busy Beautiful Bees! It is amazing how something so tiny is so hard a work affecting directly the crops of the world and the growth of most plants and fruit bearing trees! When I had for a period a government job at the facility where I worked some maintenance required we technicians to do some housekeeping and even painting some equipment outdoors, On some occasions I would be doing other sampling work to run some tests in the laboratory and while making some rounds other technicians who were doing painting would complain that there were some Bees in some apparatus they were assigned to paint and so they were going to blast them and their hive with chemicals to destroy them! I would say don’t I will finish what I’m doing and be right back so I can do that painting for you guys and just leave them alone. I would approach the area calmly and slowly and just start painting like I belong there and I don’t mind some Bees buzzing around me to see what I was all about, they didn’t sense a threat somehow and just allowed me to paint and not one sting. These Bees looked like a mini version of a yellow jacket and those can be a bit more defensive but these were able to work around me and me around them!
        You got me laughing a bit because I picture you buying up most of the candles which is fine so I figure it must be good for you that everyone around there feels the way we do about Bees and Beeswax candles!
        That must have been quite amazing and beautiful you’re being featured in the singing of the Easter Exsultet during the Easter Vigil! Of course the priest would give you permission, why not, I’m sure you made the event all the more precious and inspiring for all in attendance! 🤗🌷 🙏 🙏
