I'm at the library and my session is about to expire. So I have about two seconds to get a blog done. I don't even know what I want to talk about...

Well, my mom got me a new blood glucose meter and a whole bunch of test strips. That was one of the best gifts I have ever recieved. Thanks Mom! In the few days since I've had the new meter, I've been testing my blood sugar twice a day. It is doing just fine, which gives me peace of mind.

I was thinking about the reason why testing blood sugar is a good thing. It's because it forces me to take accountability for my choices. If I know I will test my blood sugar after dinner, I will be much less likely to eat too much at dinner. I have to answer for my choices and that encourages me to make better choices, to be more responsible and to think before I act. That's why it's good to have the gospel, because we know that someday, we will have to answer for all of our choices. And that helps us to make better ones, doesn't it?
