Halloween Candy - Just Being Honest

Little by little I finished them off... A week before Halloween I... I... I did it.  Sure, there were a few times when I shared but for the most part it was ME who went through a whole 19.50 oz bag of mini Snickers (and oh how good it was!) about three to four bites at a time.

Our son Matthew asked me many times what I was eating and instead of brushing him off and lying to him by saying "nothing," I would be honest and tell him.

Psalm 34:1-2 "I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad."

A few weeks ago the Lord placed on my heart to set a place setting for Him at our dinner table. So if He is present with us at our table, praised "at all times", remembered by all the crosses on the walls of our homes, and if we are boasting about the Lord then I must be honest to my kids about sneaking Snickers candy.

Honesty. Let us mommas "boast in the LORD" and be honest and humble even when we are sneaking Snickers or whatever Halloween candy you enjoy. :-)
