Stay Out Of Her Neighborhood

Proverbs 5:8 (MSG)
Keep your distance from such a woman; absolutely stay out of her neighborhood.

Pretty clear instruction.  Reminds me of when I am trying to eat healthier and I choose to make myself stay completely away from the "Carb Cabinet."  That is the term that I have lovingly chosen to call the cabinet that holds all of the junky foods... albeit... yummy, that are not generally known for their healthy content.  I am coming to grips with the fact that I shouldn't even have one of these storage spots in my house, because it is too easy to give into my temptations.

Praying today for an increased awareness to those areas in my life that are challenging to my health/well being and the tenacity to "stay out of the neighborhood!"

  3. I'm sure that you keep that just for the kiddos. I mean surely every good principal has to have a candy stash...you're just doing your job!

  4. And all this time I thought her stash was for the office staff.
