“And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard” (Colossians 1:21–23)

Ultimate Identity Theft

I was shredding paper in our paper shredder and remember how in some cases, identity theft can occur from people piecing together the shreds of paper, especially if you don’t have a cross shredding paper shredding that not only cuts the strips, but also cuts the strips into smaller strips. But we have a method that even surpasses both types of shredders. We shred our paper and then feed it to worms in our worm bin! So the paper is totally transformed into worm casting that get fed to our plants. There is no way that our identity is going to be stolen from those remains. Is that cool or what! LOL

Even I’ve heard the complaints that Organic, Sustainable eating is more expensive. Our household spends about $2500 more per year to eat organic food when compared to the person who just shops at Albertsons. There’s a group of people that are taking up the challenge to eat local, farm fresh food under a typical average American family budget. Check out their site and watch for the results.
