Well, since my birthday is gone, I've been trying to eat a little healthier (because we all know that I am not going to eat healthy on my birthday!). My sister Daisy eats healthy ALL the time. She's quite strict about it. I'm afraid you won't find me quite that disciplined. And I'm not giving up my carbs, either. :::read rebellious tone::: I'm not a fan of lo-carb diets. :::stepping off of that soap box hurriedly::: But I'm just trying to make healthier choices. This is a bit of a challenge in that I sell chocolate here in dispatch. Why I do that is another story . . .
But since I have been trying to do the healthy thing, I'm reading (and re-reading--I learned a lot of this for my fitness certification) up on things related to that. One thing that I was reading about was the idea that your body can fool you. You will think that you are hungry, but sometimes you just need to drink more. Your body can confuse thirst for hunger. So, if you just drink some water, your need will be fulfilled. It sounded a lot like my relationship with God. Throughout my life, I've thought I needed things. A successful career, a husband, children, material possessions, entertainment, etc. And all those things bring me great joy. But the real thing I needed was God. God is my Living Water. Plain and simple. : )
But when my body wants chocolate it has nothing to do with hunger...It is all about desire!!
Hope your birthday was glorious and I do not think it is celebrating unless there are carbs involved.
We have family that truly believes our COC is worse than the Baptists and we may as well not go anywhere. I did not grow up COC so I have to be careful not to let my jaw actually drop when they say things like that.
If we are sectioned off into denominations in heaven, put me with the charismatics not the C.O.C.'s!! (Read that as letters please!!)
