OK- Today being Fat Tuesday, doesn't that just sound like such a wonderful excuse to just indulge? I am not a big eater, but when I used to work in an office most of the girls were catholic and we had a major feast all day long. They would bring in some pretty good food too. I am not of Catholic faith, but did attend Catholic church with my best friends from 6th grade through my senior year and always gave something up for lent. It is one of those things I feel like I really should make a choice to sacrifice something that gives me enjoyment for the LORD. So this year it didn't take long to decide that my coffee will have to go. Ahhh!
I have had many relationships with coffee over the years, but lately it is what I run for the second I am out of bed and I don't just stop in the morning. I will start up another round about 3 PM when I am feeling like crashing again. When I first found out I was pg with my first child, I was like this too, I would drink it all morning long. I quit drinking it right then and there the moment I got the positive result. Went without it the whole pregnancy, but wouldn't you know the day I brought him home from the hospital my dh ran to the store and I asked him " Pick up some Vanilla creamer please?" and off I was drinking it again.
So today will be my last day of coffee until after Easter. So if you run into me today, I apologize if I am running 300 miles a minute - It will be the coffee talking ;)
Just something you do when you want to show Jesus how much you love him :)
