Lead me not into Temptation
Tuesday, October 15, 2019
We all face temptations every day. Just like the photo above.
Recently I won a contest in which part of the prize was 10 pints of ice cream. Today is the day I go pick up the ten pints.
This ice cream shop makes unusual original flavors. They only make each flavor for a limited time. The entry to the contest was selecting 1 of 3 potential flavors for them to make. They had never made this flavor before.
the choices were :
1. Together Better: vanilla ice cream with chocolate-covered almonds and sea salt caramel
2. Local Mocha: chocolate ice cream with locally roasted coffee with
3. G-Tini Mango: mango ice cream with mint
I picked number 1 Together Better. Doesn't it sound delicious?
The new freezer was delivered on Saturday. Today I get the ice cream to put in it.
I usually do not eat ice cream. In the past ten years I have eaten it maybe 3 times. DO I like it, yes. But on this journey I have chosen not to eat sweets.
I am going to put the ice cream in the new freezer. THen I am going to invite my three kids, their partners, and grandson to come for an ice cream party. It will be a fun way to celebrate my win, as well as use up the ice cream so it will not be tempting me from the freezer. I will get just a taste and then it will be gone.
Having a plan makes all the difference.
Have a great day.
