A favorite old hymn of the church – “There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love; There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.”
And another favorite –
“Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your blessings, see what God has done! Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your many blessings, see what God has done!
I am blessed every day. My husband blesses me daily, by being the Man of God that he is. My family blesses me – by loving me – even when I am at my worst. My employees bless me by allowing me to make mistakes as I try to be a good leader. My Aspire & Inspire Team blesses me with encouragement and motivation as I journey to a healthier lifestyle. And it goes on and on.
Bottom line – I am blessed beyond measure!
Now…the question…..How do I overcome indulging in Easter treats? Luckily for me this is not too much of an issue. Nobody does “Easter Nachos” or other salty type snacks..that I cannot resist. The only Easter sweet that I really like are “peeps” and if I don’t start….it is no problem.
So I overcome by not starting.
