Temptation

I've been a liquid diet for approximately two weeks now due to some dental work. Naturally since I can't eat certain foods I want them. But I know that I need to be obedient or I might do some damage which could prolong the treatment. It made me think of our obedience with God. We know the things that aren't pleasing to Him, yet at times we don't see the big deal in swaying just a bit.

There will always be temptation in our life. If I saw a taco right now I would probably be tempted to mash it up so I could have a taste, but that's just my temptation being tested. I've always been a what's the worst case scenario person, so I know I wouldn't eat the taco, but let's be real - it's hard to resist temptation at times.

We need to learn to listen to our heart and do what we know is right during these times. We're always going to be tested - typically with temptation we think it's going to make us happier, but once we acquire it, that's usually not the case. Think it through before you take that step into temptation.


Okay, so that's my thought for the day. If it makes no sense I'm blaming it on mouth pain and being food deprived. Speaking of food, feel free to send me any recipes for non- chewable meals. I'm sick of yogurt and soup!

Peace, love & hugs!

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.


There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
