Avoiding The Garden Of Temptation 

In 100 words or less how do you think the story will go if Adam and Eve were victorious in their first temptation ? I’ll explain more in another post 😀
I’ll go first. This is how mine would look:
With smells and sights unknown to us, Adam and Eve strolled through the bountiful vibrant garden; their hands interlocked with each other’s. Their pulses were strong as their lungs pumped air freely throughout their bodies.
Waiting for them to pass by, the serpent chose the highest place in the Tree of Knowledge, for he despised crawling on his belly! This cold creature watched Adam and Eve enjoy luscious fruits and brightly coloured vegetables. He thought about how the other animals had knocked dirt in his face. So when eve was an earshot away he asked her, “has God indeed said, “you shall not eat of every tree in the garden?”
Smiling as she stood in the cool of the day, she replied, “you know, it’s best you ask God Himself, since he did make the rules.” Eve then walked away.

Move On Over

With exercise and healthy choices along with drinking water and avoiding eating at night, I have moved one more marble over. Hallelujah!

It was soooooooo painful last night as I wanted to eat after 8 and I wanted fast food now!!!  My favorite tea didn’t comfort me after a bit. We were working on a late night project at church til 1….. Walmart’s alway open as are a few fast food places…. But what did I want more; to be temporarily satisfied, breaking down all thework God has brought me through or to I want to be still and know that God is with me and will bring me a victory?
Soooo, I waited and this morning I’m having ground chicken, eggs, and catch up. I want to carbs so bad but I don’t want the pounds 😉
