Day 101 - Thursday 10th April

GLUTTONY - is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

I think this is the sin that most people are guilty of and I know that I am no exception. When I see this word I automatically think of food but it can relate to so many other things in life.
In terms of food, I am definitely guilty. I am trying to repent for my gluttony sin by cutting out naughty food in the hope that I may lose some weight in time for my holiday in June. Cutting out certain foods I find not too strenuous but I know my portion sizes could be smaller but if I try to eat less, I still feel hungry and so want more. My dinner this evening is an example of this. I ate a huge bowl of soup that would probably serve two.
Many people are greedy for materialistic things and are never satisfied with their lot in life. I guess I could be guilty of this too. I do like to have nice things around me, but I don’t think I am too bad on this one.
I have other gluttony sins which are probably primarily based around crafting equipment and stash. I can’t help but buy more stuff even though I have lots of stuff at home - some unopened and lots unused. James often despairs of me. It must be an addiction as I know I am not the only one who suffers from this “problem”. Trouble is, how do I overcome it – perhaps I should become a recluse and take away my internet access. NOT!!!

Yes, i think a lot of us are guilty of the 'stash gluttony'!!And i know i can never stop myself from buying more!..and the only way to stop would be to take away the internet access!

Love the photo Claire, I can certainly relate to stash gluttony.
However, sometimes you just have to have somethings when it is there in front of you otherwise you might never see it again. LOL
