So the following is from a magazine I’ve been reading lately:
“Anything done in excess can become greed/gluttony,
Whether it’s eating, drinking, or shopping too much
(For me, it’s reading!)
Is it cutting into the time you spend with others?
Is it jeopardizing your financial stability?
(I have more books that I could read in a lifetime…
HELLO! There are public libraries!)
Are you relying on it as an emotional crutch instead of going to God?”
(Yep, nothing like escaping in a good book!)
Just something to ‘ponder’ in our over-indulgent culture.
from “becoming – The Wisdom Books of the Old Testament” – 2005

I woke up thinking about shopping…
I drove an hour
Just to get some groceries…
#4 different stores.
6 hours later I made it back home.
I pondered it yesterday on the hour drive home.
The last few years,
I have dealt with eating…
I wanted to ‘feel’ pregnant still.
A dietician told me earlier this month
Hunger pains, cramps, even headaches/dizziness
May no longer be a true signal of physical hunger.
Looks like I’ll be reading this magazine Bible again…
I have been carrying it in my vehicle for a reason!
