Today's thought: Losing weight is no excuse for losing patience!

Ephesians 4:1-2
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love.

Temper: It seems that the longer you diet, the shorter it gets. Keep-ing control of our temper is one of the harder parts of dieting. We feel everyone has some word of advice on what we ought to do differently, that no one really understands what we're going through, and no one appreciates all that we do without. It's no wonder we find ourselves a little short-tempered at times. That's when we need to turn to the source of all patience and peace. If Christ is allowed to rule in our hearts, we will find a new depth of tolerance and forbearance.

    We have to have humor and patience, and it is so hard sometimes, people who have never had a weigh problem do not understand. I have to tell you this, my son who is out of work and doing some part time work cashed his check today for a few hours work, (he is in Colorado) his check was for 40.00 after every thing taken out, he went to his car and he had a ticket for over parking time and it was for 20.00. When he called me we both laughed it was funny but not funny, but it was like he said what do you do, but laugh.So we have to have some humor in it all.
    Lil Shine, i like what you said, pray for our minds and our tempers.

    Great wisdom!!! My Bishop tells us always to pray for our minds and our tempers. It's dangerous these days, so thanks for the reminder.

    The first thing I lose on a diet is my sense of humor! That's why I'm so glad SP isn't a diet. After all this time, I'm still laughing.
