I chased temptation out the door again.

Saturday, June 21, 2014

Guess who came over on my birthday with a lovely present, and what else? A BIG TRAY OF COOKIES. This time they were my very favorite bakery style decorated butter cookies from my favorite very sweet neighbor, once again. So they will take a ride to church with me tomorrow and afterwards I'll take them to the nice people in recovery at Hope House. It gives me a great sense of relief as I write this blog, to commit this tray of temptation to its' new owners in the presence of my Spark Friends. Accountability is a big part of recovery from overeating, because left to our own devices, there are just no boundaries or limits sometimes. Plus, I know how happy they will be knowing that someone cares to to give them such a nice treat. AND I'LL BE SO HAPPY KNOWING THIS TEMPTATION HAS WALKED OUT MY DOOR ONCE AGAIN!!! emoticonThank you Jesus! emoticon

    Good for you. I think we are all quilty of being enablers at some time in our life. I love to feed people, that's my way of showing love. I am learning there are other ways to show love and that also applies to me.

    Why do people think that sweet treats are always welcome? At least they'll find a happy recipient elsewhere!
