I need to turn over a new leaf, but I am not sure how to do it.

Every week I am out to lunch almost every single day with someone from church.  The face time is important.  See yesterday’s post. 

Here are my problems associated with lunches out.
1.     It is getting expensive to pay for lunch out every day.
2.    I am eating way too many calories at lunch time for at 54 year old man.
3.    The gals at the Panda CafĂ© know me by name.

Mostly it is a health thing.  I need to find some new habits.  So I have an idea.  I am going to go to the store every week and but a loaf of healthy bread, a bunch of cans of tuna and some low fat mayo.  If you and I are going to have lunch, we can meet in the church coffee bar.  I will make each of us a tuna sandwich and we can talk.

What do you think about that?  Will that work?  Maybe you have other ideas?
It’s a beautiful day in God’s world, be sure to see the good.

Hold the mayo. Just kidding. Couldn't resist that one.

If I were in your shoes, I would opt for face time over a soft drink in the afternoon, or coffee in the morning or afternoon. Then you could have your lunch time to do whatever you needed to get done, including eating a healthy lunch.

Also, I almost bet you'd have lots of interruptions if you try to do this in the coffee bar area.

You're so good to want to spend time with people. That's admirable and compassionate.
