Follow The Moose Tracks

I may be on a continuous effort to stay fairly slim and trim, but that doesn't mean I don't keep up with the latest advances in the food industry. It seems as if on almost a weekly basis, new products pop up that I never thought of. They're mostly convenience foods now, but desserts also have really expanded in recent years.

Moose tracks ice cream is one of those expanded offerings that will expand you too if you don't limit your intake of it. It's great, and the story of who invented them and what they've done with their success might lead you straight to God.

Wally and June Blume have been Christians most of their lives. They served their God in their local church, giving of their time, talents and money to help God's kingdom grow. But when Wally came up with the unique ice cream called Moose Tracks, everything accelerated. For some people, when success comes, their attention and dedication to God's business declines. Not for Wally and June - just the opposite, for they are convinced it is just their faithfulness that God rewarded with their successful business growth.

You might say they are living a dream, but what they are really living out is obedience.

Col. 3:17 (Msg)

Let every detail in your lives words, actions, whatever be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.

That's exactly what Wally and June have done, and what we each can do, regardless of what work we find ourselves doing, or what people we find ourselves with.

So live for God and pass the moose tracks folks. :)



PS - Oh and look out for two new flavors in the freezer case - Tootsie Roll and Tootsie Pop ice cream. Wally's been busy. :)
