It was Halloween. Devoted Spouse and I had a busy day plus the trick-or-treaters would be at our house at 6pm (those little kids are always on time!)
Must fix something quick for dinner! I know — a microwaved chicken pot pie (actually the ones by Marie Callendar are good, if a bit salty).
Hmmm, let’s do our reading for class while chowing down on the pot pie. Brilliant!
I got my dinner…a glass of milk…sat at the kitchen table and opened my book by Foster on Celebration of Discipline (about the Spiritual Disciplines). Into my mouth goes the first fork full of chicken and veggies; nom nommy. I turn to the next chapter in my reading and which Spiritual Discipline do you think is the next to study? Oh yeah…Fasting.
I closed the book and finished off my pot pie…sigh…
