indulgences

2 Comments

I’m not talking about the kind of indulgences that got Martin Luther all riled up and parked in front of the church in Wittenberg.

I’m talking about the kind that don’t have anything to do with (n.)heaven, but (adj.)heavenly deliciousness instead.

While on vacation with my children this week we visited a place called The Butter Cream Cupcakery.

Oh. My. Daisies! (Yes, that’s gonna be a thing.) It’s the kind of place where the calories are way too high and the cash flow is much too slow, but where you momentarily forget all of that…momentarily.

My salted caramel treat was magnificent, but paying $2.95 for a cupcake is just not something I do every day. (In truth, as a family of 7, we never would. I didn’t pay for it. It was Mom’s treat. Thanks Mom!) It was delicious, really, but it was atypical.

I would imagine though, each of us has our own vices, our own rules for indulgence, our own sweet vanilla caramel weaknesses.

What is yours?

Is it anything goes on vacation?

What do you have way too many of?

Clothes? Toys?

What tempts you to spend entirely too much money?

By the way, did I tell you we also went to The Chocolate Cafe? (Thanks Dad!) Oi.

I want you to see life the way I see it. Often contradictory, seldom predictable, many times lovely, occasionally tragic, but every day filled with God's grace.
