Here's a thought for today:
Let's just say a certain someone gives up eating sweets for Lent.
Then let's pretend she happens to buy a lot of frozen food at the grocery store.
And imagine that when she comes home to put it all away, she needs to take out the ice cream to make room for the chicken.
So...not wanting to let the ice cream go to waste (that would be a SIN after all), she decides the proper thing to do would be to eat the ice cream, and make her husband eat some too.
(Hmmm, why does this sound a little bit like Adam and Eve?)
There's nothing wrong with this scenario, is there? I think this person should not feel guilty at all. Waste not, want not, I say.
Of course, the sprinkles that the certain someone put on top of her ice cream weren't exactly going to perish....
