I started back reading Made to Crave today. I had ended with Chapter 9, so I read Chapter 10 "This Isn't Fair". Boy did it home!! I had made brownies to take up to the cabin last weekend. I had some left over. They were calling my name
Well, I gave in and had one this afternoon with some Peanut Butter Cup ice cream.
Then I read Chapter 10. Here is a couple of quotes...
--"Our flesh buys right into Satan's lie that it's not fair for things to be withheld from us."
--"I realized having a pity party was a clue I was reliying on my own strength not God's."
--"...think beyond the moment. Say out loud,"This feels good now, but how will I feel about this in the morning?"
--"Weakness is hard, but it doesn't have to mean defeat. It is my opportunity to experience God's power firsthand."
--"Our taste buds make such empty claims to satisfy us, but perservering with God will make us truly full, complete, not lacking anything."
I plan on using these ideas next time I am tempted to eat something that is not really on my eating plan.
I think I am going to reread the first 9 chapters.
I finished all the final details on the 5 Mahan memory quilts I have quilted. I now have 8 more tops to quilt for my cousins. I have a couple for myself that I will do after the others are done.
I also made the scrappy binding for my sister's 50th birthday quilt. I still need to quilt it.
