And thus it was. 

I quickly learned that such resolutions come with a great deal of
superfluous supervision. Every time I turned around my wife said, "How 
is your diet coming?" Of course, she knows exactly how it is coming 
because she is the one who was supervising this aspect of my life. 

When going out to eat at a restaurant she was most helpful in
supervising my ordering by observing, "You can't order that because 
it's not in your diet." 

There are many things that will not show up on my New Year's resolution
list and the number one item that will not be there is dieting. Gone 
from my vocabulary are such phrases as, "Boy, I've eaten too much 
tonight." Or, "After eating like this I should go on a diet." 

I am not sure God is quite as concerned about my eating habits as other
people are. I like what David writes in the 23rd Psalm. "Thou preparest 
a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my 
head with oil; my cup runneth over" (Psalms 23:5). 

When God sets the table, he expects me to feast, and I do not anticipate
disappointing Him.
