Dear Lord -- I pray that as I go about my day, You will continue to hold my hand and walk with me. In Jesus' name, I pray.
Who is a God like You, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; You will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea (Micah 7;18-19)
Tonight my kids were in the mood for McDonalds (who am I kidding...me too!) My husband and daughter both ordered a plain hamburger, my son a BigMac, and I went for my favourite Grilled Chicken Sandwich. I checked out the stats on our favourites and was pleasantly surprised that the grilled chicken did well in terms of low calories and fat -- relatively speaking, that is. The hamburger (as boring as it is) had the least amount of calories at 250 cal, with 9 grams of fat and 520 mg of sodium. My chicken had 350 cal, 9 gr fat and 820 mg sodium. The BigMac? Not so good -- 540 calories, 29 g of fat and 1040 mg of sodium. Eeep. I need to talk to my son about his choice. The most astonishing food on the menu? Angus Chipotle BBQ Bacon with a heart-stopping 800 calories, 39 grams of fat and 2020 mg of sodium. Yikes!
