Yesterday, my husbands nephew & his new love showed up at our house (I was the only one home) completely high on something - and completely covered (I am not exaggerating here) in pink paint (or something like paint). And they wanted to come in. I told them, "I am not letting you in my house." He of course looks at me like I hurt his feelings - w/ these puppy dog eyes - and I said - "No, you are not coming in and you need to leave." Now, I don't know about any of you and your relationship w/ your in-laws - but, in my case I'm a you-know-what if I don't cow-tow to anything they want. Well, those days have been LOOONG over, baby, and they can just tell their story walking.
But, what I need the woo-hoo for is - in the past when something like this has happened - I have eaten my way through it. Worried about what they're going to say or do etc. This time I wanted to go and eat everything - but I didn't! I just kept reminding myself how hard I've worked all month and nobody is going to upset me to the point that I sacrifice my health anymore. And today, even though I'm still upset - I have confidence that I'm not going to chow down about it.
I'm sure there is more to come - because I told my husband his nephew is not welcomed at our house. We have our child to protect. I also said that if his nephew wants to ruin his life - that's his choice - but I/we don't have to watch.
I can do all things, through Christ, who strengthens me.
