Adventures in Texas
We are enjoying a good time with family. I have had a small amount of control of what I am eating, and am doing the best I can. Most importantly, I'm tracking every bite and writing down those points. I have negotiated beef enchiladas, cool whip and jello salads, red velvet cake with ice cream, lasagna,
Tonight was supposed to be my turn to cook. I was planning grilled chicken and a big salad. But we just had a family food meeitng and it was decided that we will eat leftovers because there's still so much food from previous meals.
Oh, well. This, too, will pass.
Other than the food, I'm enjoying being with family and looking forward to going to stay with my sister day after tomorrow. I just need to get through these next two days!
One thing that has helped me through these challenges has been listening to sermons from my niece's new church, Grace Covenant in Austin. He's been doing a series on the fruits of the spirit this summer and I've listened to them all. I recommend them! Google the name of the church (and Austin) and click on sermons. You'll be glad you did.
My mom once told me there are times in your life that you just have to get through. I feel like this is one of those times for me. Sometimes I have great insights that I realize and can share, and other times, like now, I'm just surviving today. It's all part of the journey. It's all normal. I know God is still with me, and helping me get through this little desert.
