We went over to a friends house for dinner tonight. They served fajitas. I love fajitas. (who doesn't?)
I panicked when they first invited me. Because I would be missing out on good food? No, that's not why. I panicked because I haven't been overly vocal about my new diet plan this week and I was afraid to let the cat out of the bag so to speak. Plus, I really didn't want to offend them by not eating this delicious meal they prepared.
Normally, I would just pick at something and eat a small bit. Well, this time, there was nothing I was going to eat. I ate my dinner before even going so I was satisfied. They kept telling me that chicken is healthy and that I just HAD to try the dessert. I apologized and told them not to be offended but this week I just had my certain foods I was eating and next time I would eat for sure!! In the end, they were very supportive and they understood what I was doing.
Again, it wasn't hard. I wasn't depriving myself or missing out on anything special. I'm sure the food tasted good but what I enjoyed was spending time with a great Christian family and having a wonderful discussion with them. That will be more memorable and important than any kinds of food.
Lets remember to keep our lives simple and focus on the more important things in our lives.
