Monday, 18 February 2008 - A temptation resisted

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for a temptation resisted.

For Lent, I gave up eating dessert and chocolate (even though I lost my sweet tooth a few years ago, I still occasionally bake and indulge, especially when Mike visits). So, when our neighbor, Debbie, gives us a plateful of her famous chocolate chip cookies, it takes everything in my power to resist eating one delicious crumb. Of course, S assures me that it's okay to eat just one cookie. But, in my heart, I understand the power and significance of personal sacrifice and successfully resist temptation. Instead, I eat a really juicy tangerine.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
