“Temple Tending”

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. ~ I Cor. 6:19-20

Dear God,

Welcome to my heart, Your home!  How honored I am to know that Your Holy Spirit lives in me!  May this knowledge constantly remind and inspire me to treat my physical body with reverence – not to worship it, but to worship You and Your indwelling presence.  My body is just temporary, Lord.  Someday You will give me a new body, and I will see You face to face.  I can’t wait!  In the meantime, I offer my thoughts, my actions, my words, and my attitudes – all of me – to You.  Make me a living sacrifice, a lovely testament to the power to be found only in You.

Not so great a day today.  Still trying to deal w/ the unwelcome discovery from last night.  Helloooo, emotional eating attack!  I succumbed this morning – 2 monster cookies w/ eggs & 8 oz. coffee w/ whole milk & 3 T sugar for breakfast.  Lunch wasn’t so bad:  small PB&J sandwich, 3/4 an orange bell pepper, raw, 6 oz. strawberry yogurt, and 10 oz. cucumber water.

We have homegroup tonight.  I can’t for the life of me remember if our leader-ess will be cooking for us or not.  If not, then I’ll probably have a hot dog or sandwich with a yogurt for supper.  The Hubs fasts on Wednesdays, so I won’t have to worry about cooking for him.  I must admit, it’s nice to have a break from the constant planning & cooking!

Well, back to work.
