Save Some Room
My amazing sister is here and has contributed today’s topic to Krellfish.
We love sugar. We get together and basically go crazy with the amount of sweets we consume. Especially at the holidays. The Christmas that topped them all was a couple of years ago when we polished off a LARGE pan of Magic Cookie bars, over a period of a few hours. I am talking about an 11 x 15 sized pan. If you haven’t had them, they involve lots of gooey sweetened condensed milk, buttery graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts for those who want them, we don’t. I don’t even remember being sick over how much we ate, which is pretty scary!
We notice though, that the amount of sugar we consume directly affects our relationships. And not in a good way. Some of our worst family blowouts have come after a major sweets binge. I think we hope that every time we overeat, that it will be the one time that it doesn’t affect us in a negative way. Yes, we are the epitome of insanity in this area, doing something over and over and expecting a different outcome.
Relationship thought number 15 – Everything in Moderation God wants only the very best for each of us this Christmas. His deepest desire is for us to worship him in every way. He wants us to laugh, love and eat to our hearts content. In God’s economy however, just like in everything else, too much of a good thing can quickly become a bad thing. So live like there is no tomorrow here on Earth, but eat like Christmas dinner is coming. Save a little room and maybe you’ll save a relationship. At the very least, you might save the feelings of those you love.
