It started with a healthy brunch, mid-morning. My husband invited our friends (who had asked us to join them for Thanksgiving) to come over for one of his famous fritattas. We ate, we played Wii...a fun time!
Later we went over to their house for the Big Event. The food was delicious. I had a reasonable serving of the foods I wanted, and thanks to Jill's advice, left the things I didn't want off my plate. As I was serving my homemade rolls to everyone, I noticed that at least two people there had less on their plate than I did...and nobody was giving them a hard time. We ate, we talked, we laughed, and then I had a half of a piece of pumpkin pie. When we headed home, I even had three points left for the day!
From this perspective, all the worrying I did before yesterday seems a little silly. Reminds me of when Jesus said,
- 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; ... 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[b]? 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:27a;33-34)
- 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
