God's Word for Today

Campmeeting starts today...

Campmeeting starts today.

My family and me have been participating in campmeeting for 20 years.

Things have changed so much, I am not sure all of it is for the good. But since I am not in charge, nor do I want to be, I forge ahead and try to embrace the different without too much grumbling.

This year one of my differences will be a BIG test for me.

The food.

I am going to strive for balance,  as well as maintaining my commitment to repairing my temple.

Do I think I can go the whole week without  a portion of fried chicken, banana pudding, Ima Jean's pound cake with Carmel frosting and all the other wonderful offerings that will show up on the table? Probably not. However I am making a plan, what I will take, making a few salads and basically trying not to completely go off the rails for the next five days.

I wish I had taken note of exactly when I began, but it has been a gradual process.  Over the course of time, eliminating certain foods and moving towards real food the evidence is clear. I am down by about 15 plus pounds.

So the week begins...

#repairmytemple vs #campmeeting

I am envisioning an epic battle, Godzilla vs Mothra, can the two coexist or will the week end in a pile of rubble.

Banana Pudding vs Tossed Salad...

Lord, help me maintain balance!

Blessings

Moderation! You can taste the goodness and still maintain your temple.

These kinds of things are a BIG challenge for me! I agree that moderation is good - & I'm doing Weight Watchers which means I can eat ANYTHING, as long as I plan for it. That being said, some foods are triggers for me & I find that I can't stop with just one serving. I'm wishing you luck!
