I have been doing very well with this sacrifice and I have been very happy with my self control.... that is until I had a bowl of Chocolate Chex cereal. Oh. My. Goodness.
But now I have met a moral dilemma. Since this cereal is sooo very yummy, and it does taste like chocolate, I feel like I am seriously cheating God out of my sacrifice. Sure, it would have been ok if I only had ONE bowl of this cereal, but after I tasted it I had to have a second bowl, and then a handful or two every time I walked past the pantry.
Part of me is saying "Aw, it is just cereal... not dessert!" and the other part of me is saying "June Cleaver! You know very well that you are enjoying this cereal too much and we all know that you are not supposed to enjoy anything during Lent for the LOVE OF GOD Woman! Walk away from the cereal!"
Word on the streets is that my Girl Scout cookies will be delivered during Lent as well. I wonder if those low-carb, low fat, no sugar ones count as an actual cookie. Yep, it is going to be a long Lent.
