So, I decided to fast desserts. But, I didn’t tell anyone else because it was just between me and God.
On the very first day, David wanted to go for a ride. He was driving us around in a part of town where we seldom go.
About the time I asked, “Where are we going?” we pulled into Ted Drewe’s.
If you’re not from St. Louis, let me tell you. Ted Drewe’s is unbelievable! It’s like Heaven on Earth! (Unless you’re fasting sweets… then it’s pure TORTURE!)
So, the family ordered their ice cream. They keep asking me what I wanted and I keep saying, “I’m not gonna have any.”
David’s like, “Are you sure?”
Then he started flying spoonfuls of ice cream into my mouth. (With all of the appropriate airplane sound effects.)
This stuff is like CRACK! One bite and you just start shaking all over and wondering, “How can I get more?”
So… what can I say? I gave in. (Are you disappointed in me?)
As I walked up to the counter, I was praying. (Watch me bargain.) “Hey God, I’m gonna start that fast TOMORROW. But, I’ll stay on two days longer at the end. That way, You’re getting double for Your trouble.”
That’s pretty sad! I hope you do better than I did. Me and Tiramisu broke my vow on DAY ONE!
Whatever it is, try and keep your promises. God will always honor a vow made to Him.
Have you ever made a promise that you totally broke? (Yeah…me too!)
Let’s be honest and repent together! If you’ve “conveniently” forgotten a promise you made to God – comment ‘YES’. C’mon… haven’t we all?
