A few weeks ago I talked about lent and what I was planning to do, which is spend more time in God’s word. It has been going pretty well and I already feel so much better and closer to Him. During that same week when I talked about my lent decision, I also talked about how crazy a week it was with lots of tests and things going on. Well, in all my busyness, I realized I hadn’t eaten Chick Fil A all week. I then realized that since I hadn’t eaten it since lent had started that I should just take the time and give that up for lent. But trust me, this was not a split second decision.
If you know me then you know my obsession with Chick Fil (CFA). Back in my Stuttgart living days. I jumped at any opportunity to eat CFA.
We have one on campus so it is very easy access for me these days. So much easy access I usually eat it 3 times a week.
As you can imagine I am dying to have it. I mean it is becoming a problem. I didn’t really realize how often I went to CFA. I can’t even go on that side of campus because I know I will be tempted.
This morning I got to my 9:30 class and for the past week the very nice TCU athlete brings her CFA breakfast and sits right behind me. Literally directly behind me. Talk about cruel. That happened this morning and usually I eat my pop tart and try to pretend I don’t smell it, but I forgot my pop tart in my room and the rest is down hill. So all day I have been trying to be thankful for other foods. For example, I went to the library and realized they have grilled cheese and it is really good!! I mean if I hadn’t given up CFA, then I would have never tried this grilled cheese. It was no CFA, but it was something new to me and I don’t mind it.
I encourage you all to keep CFA far away from me, please. I am not sure what I will do if it gets close to me (totally jk…maybe).
Try something new in life. Go out of the normal schedule. Get the grilled cheese and try to ignore the nuggets. At least try people. Oh and yeah, be thankful.
