Senior Morgan Baltz followed with a single of her own, on chopper up the middle. After a pop-out to right, sophomore Bailey Boyer crushed her game-winning triple to left-center to finish off the Wildcats, to secure 5-4 victory for the Lady Tigers.

Also providing hits for the Lady Tigers were Freshman Paige Hyatt with an RBI double, Sophomore Makayla Light with a single, Junior Cheyenne Hernandez with a double, Junior Kelcie Bean with a single, and Senior Makayla Rein with a single.

“My Lord and My God”

“Consider this, a quotation from Helen Keller: “It need not discourage us if we are full of doubts. ….”

By Pastor Ralph J. Mineo

One of my favorite prayers in the Bible was spoken by the apostle Thomas. It’s a short and simple prayer, a confession of faith: “My Lord and my God.” Thomas spoke this one week after Jesus rose from the dead.

On that first Easter Day, the apostles were in a locked room, in fear for their lives. After all, their Rabbi had been executed, and they were his followers. Were they next? That evening, the Risen Lord Jesus appeared to them. For some reason, Thomas wasn’t with them at the time. They later told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
Mineo My Lord and My God

Thomas had his doubts and said so. For centuries, this moment of doubt gave Thomas the well-known nickname “Doubting Thomas.” The following week, the disciples were gathered together again. Thomas was with them this time. The Risen Lord Jesus appeared to them again. What DIDN’T happen next is, I think, extremely important. Jesus didn’t condemn Thomas for his doubts. Jesus didn’t degrade Thomas for not believing strongly enough. Jesus wasn’t afraid of doubts and struggles. Instead Jesus embraces who have them. In fact, when he entered the room, Jesus said to everyone there, “Peace be with you.”

What Jesus DID was even more important. Jesus invited Thomas to believe. He gave Thomas the choice to believe or not. Jesus was saying, “Here I am for you.” In fact, because Thomas had said he wouldn’t believe unless he touched the scars and the wound in Jesus’ side, Jesus invited Thomas to touch him, but we’re not told that he did that. I think he probably did not. Instead Thomas responded with a prayer of faith. He looked Jesus in the eyes and said, “My Lord and my God.”

With a powerful affirmation like that, I think he should be called “Believing Thomas.” But his doubts are remembered historically more than his faith. It’s almost as if doubts are wrong and unacceptable. No, the doubts led Thomas to faith.

Consider this, a quotation from Helen Keller: “It need not discourage us if we are full of doubts. Healthy questions keep faith dynamic. Unless we start with doubts we cannot have a deep-rooted faith. One who believes lightly and unthinkingly has not much of a belief. One who has a faith which is not to be shaken has won it through blood and tears – has worked their way from doubt to truth as one who reaches a clearing through a thicket of brambles and thorns.”

We are invited into faith as Thomas was invited. That invitation came in the words that followed Thomas’ prayer: “Blessed are those who have not seen [the scars] and yet believe.”

Try this three-step spiritual exercise. (1) Think of your doubts, troubles, stresses, pain, struggles, etc. (2) Imagine the Risen Lord Jesus standing in front of you. Look into his eyes and say three times: “My Lord and my God.” (3) Finally, listen, and hear Jesus speak to you, three times, “Peace be with you.”

May you experience the peace of Christ as you face every doubt and struggle. I say to you, as Jesus said to the apostles, “Peace be with you.” Think of someone in your life who needs that peace. Pass it on! Jesus, our Lord, our God, will speak his peace through you.

Chowline:Why choose whole foods over processed?

Between 2000 and 2012, researchers asked more than 157,000 households to scan barcodes of all foods and beverages they bought at grocery stores. Most households participated in the study for about four years……

I’m dating a guy who loves to cook, which is great, but he seems to rely on a lot of processed foods. Would it be worthwhile, health-wise, to try to shift him more toward fresh, whole foods? 

Probably, yes. But it depends on what you mean by “processed foods.”

Although foods that are minimally processed — frozen fruits and vegetables without sauces or seasonings, for example — fare comparably to their fresh counterparts, highly processed foods often are loaded with sodium, fat, added sugar and calories or are otherwise compromised, such as whole grains being processed into refined grains.

A recent study presented at the American Society for Nutrition annual meeting indicates that processed foods may have larger health implications in the U.S. than previously thought.

The study, conducted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, examined the nutritional profile of highly processed foods and how pervasive they are in the typical grocery cart.  What it found was eye-opening.

Between 2000 and 2012, the researchers asked more than 157,000 households to scan barcodes of all foods and beverages they bought at grocery stores. Most households participated in the study for about four years. The researchers gathered information on each item, including nutrition, product description and ingredient listings, to determine how processed each food item was.

The researchers defined “highly processed” food items as those that contained multiple ingredients and industrially formulated mixtures, including soft drinks, cookies, chips, white bread, candy and prepared meals. In contrast, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, dried beans, and fresh meat were classified as unprocessed or minimally processed. The researchers also distinguished between foods that were ready to eat, such as candy and chips; foods that were ready to heat, such as frozen dinners; and foods that required cooking or preparation.

Chowline whole foods

Over the course of the study, the portion of calories from highly processed foods and beverages remained steady at just over 60 percent, the researchers said. By 2012, more than 80 percent of calories from a household’s purchases were in ready-to-eat or ready-to-heat form, and those foods tended to be higher in fat, sugar and salt than minimally processed foods. Their conclusion: While processed foods such as canned vegetables and whole-grain breakfast cereal can contribute to a healthful diet, more highly processed foods could be major culprits in overconsumption and obesity.

The researchers said they hope their findings encourage food manufacturers to boost the health and nutrition in processed food products. In the meantime, take a look at your own grocery cart.

Try to focus purchases on fresh, whole and minimally processed foods. Reading labels can help. Products labeled “whole grain” should have at least 2 grams of fiber per serving. Look for products with less than 5 percent of the recommended values for fat or sodium and that have less added sugar.
