Why, oh why?
So, purely hypothetical situation.... let's just say you are trying really hard to eat good and lose a few pounds. All day long you eat really well and even do a really hard workout. Then, you go to pick up your daughter at choir and it runs 30 minutes over. By the time she walks out, she's so hungry she's shaking. You know everyone else ate dinner at church, so you treat her to the Wendy's that's right on the way home. You're being really good and you haven't had dinner either so you order a small chili. As your pulling away from the window, your daughter informs you that there's a hamburger in place of her chicken nuggets. You whip the car around and go back to correct the order. The hamburger, actually, the double cheeseburger stays in your possession.
Wouldn't you just assume that the good Lord was trying to tell you that you should eat the cheeseburger? Because, cheeseburgers can't be reheated. The bun would be too soggy. The chili however, can be saved for lunch the next
day. I mean, aren't we supposed to be good
stewards of the things God puts in our possession?
And, don't you think you passed the test if instead of eating a double cheeseburger, you chucked one slice of meat out the window (thinking of the birds, of course) and you only ate a single cheeseburger?
Ok, OK, OOOKKKK!!! We all know this is NOT a hypothetical situation!! Why, oh why do these things happen to me? And, why am I so weak?
Please tell me I am not the only one. Please tell me there's hope.
And, since I am laying it all out on the line, and letting you see the depth of my depravity, you might as well know that there was no way I could say no to Paul's strawberry pie- his substitute choice for a cake. Remember, it was his birthday. I had to celebrate with him. It was healthy though, right? Hello, strawberries!
........ Strawberries over some kind of cream cheese filling... *sigh*
