Caramel Onion!

Yes - you read correctly!  The owner at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory agreed to put caramel around an apple AND an onion.  We were at girl's camp last night and gave a short lesson on how deceptive the adversary can be when he wants us to do wrong.  How he makes good things seem bad, and bad things appear very good. 

Through a variety of short eliminations, we chose two girls to participate.  They were able to pick their apple, and then we announced that it would be an apple 'eating' contest.  Girl one just dove right into her apple - girl two was a bit more tentative, and just starting peeling off the caramel a bite at a time.  When she got a large patch of caramel eaten - she looked down in preparation to take a big bite and said: "I'm not eating that!" 

So - because she was tentative, we didn't get the reaction we were hoping for....but maybe being a little tentative and aware as we navigate this life isn't such a bad thing!
