I guess you're right about not looking good naked. But I was at the graduation and remember in clear back to 1972 when I walked across that stage. I got kinda depressed looking back at my life. Well, you can look at your cup half empty of half full. If I really try to be grateful compared to most people, my cup runneth over.
I took my own food to marine World yesterday and did pretty well. I can't believe how much better my life is compared to before McDougalling. I was up and down those hills with two little ones. Before, I would not really have considered it much less happily. Now I look forward to going if not for the exercise. Gotta run, God Bless. We can do all things through Christ whom strengthens us.
So...your high school had a clothing optional graduation? Ha ha!
Seriously, I think we all struggle with trying to focus on what we have. It seems that you have made much progress in regard to this, KC! Yes, our cups are running over!!!
"28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe; 29for indeed our God is a consuming fire." (Hebrews 12, NRSV)
"6Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4, NRSV)
These verses tell me that I should consider myself full because of what God has done. That is part of walking by faith. I may not feel full (or look thin) but if God says I am richly blessed, I am!
