] FREE DAILY CHRISTIAN BEDTIME STORIES Author: Alfred Benjamin King Title of Today’s Story: I m only eating all this now because I don t know if I wou ld eat in the evening Date: 10th January 2012 (Tuesday) Website: www.thechristianbookcompany.com I m only eating all this now because I don t know if I would eat in the evening Once upon a time there lived a little Christian girl named Cindy. She loved the L ord with all her heart and loved her Mum and Dad too. Cindy wanted to be a child actor and made her Mum take her to audition for roles. Her Mum was very supportive because she was and actress too but she wanted her daughter to start early to star in block busters and live her dreams. Her Dad wa s also very supportive. He also was in the movie business but he was not an acto r. Since Cindy and her Mum were Christians they could not accept any and any role. C indy s Mum had to read the script inside out because Hollywood is sometimes hear tless and could cast kids in the most inapprociate and evil roles imaginable not caring about what damage their are doing psychologically to the actor or to the ir audience. Even though Cindy wanted to star in a Christian movie, Cindy s best bet was to st ar in a Family Friendly movie; because Hollywood hates to talk about Jesus unl ess they are using his name as a curse word. Cindy s Mum finally struck gold. She found the best script she could possibly get . It was very family friendly even though it had a scene that was a little distu rbing, her daughter s character would not be in that particular scene. Cindy was autioned for the role and she won. She was very happy. She had gotten h er first big role in a major motion picture film. Cindy, her Mum and her Dad went out to celebrate. Cindy s Mum became her official manger even though she was still an actress herse lf and had her own manager. Shooting schedules where hectic and Cindy often times didn t know when she would be eating. She went from having fixed times for breakfast, lunch and dinner to h aving lunch at dinner time and sometimes even having lunch at breakfast time. Her new world was really taking a toll on her and sometimes because of confused, mixed up and unknown times for her next meal; Cindy often found herself hungry d uring takes. To make matters worse, since Hollywood is skinny crazy; Cindy s character was sup posed to be skinny. Now that won t have been a problem if Cindy had a fixed and regulated eating sche dule but sadly she didn t and since her Mum wasn t always there because she had her own acting roles herself; she didn t observe every little thing that Cindy w as struggling with because of her new life even though she observed some things and helped her daughter out with the things she needed help in knowing. One day, another little girl on the set was in Cindy s dressing room. They had co me to be friends even though Cindy knew the girl was not a Christian. The girl s name was Jessica. Cindy complained to Jessica about her problems with the impromptu shooting times and her forever changing meal times. Jessica told Cindy that she is going to give her some advise as a friend on how sh e herself handles it but she must promise not to tell anybody even her Mum. Cindy promised. Jessica told Cindy that she should always eat two meal or three meal ahead and sk ip the meals she added to her combo meal when the time for that meal comes. In o
ther words, in the morning she should also eat her afternoon food if she is not sure that she would be free in the afternoon, then when afternoon comes if she h appens to be free she should not eat that afternoon because she already ate her afternoon food along with her morning food. That way even if she not free in the afternoon she would not feel it. It sounded wise to Cindy. She thanked Jessica over and over again for sharing wit h her; her precious show - biz secret. Cindy didn t tell her Mum about it. She started practicing what she had learnt fr om Jessica. The lady that Cindy s Mum told to watch over Cindy when she was not around saw wh at Cindy was doing and cautioned her about it but Cindy didn t listen to her sin ce she was not an actress. After all, what did she know about show biz? Cindy wa s only bothered that she had not practiced her show - biz secret secretly enough , and somebody had found out. Cindy became more secretive about her new eating methods so that nobody else woul d be able to know her precious secret which she had learned from her good friend Jessica. Cindy often found herself still eating her afternoon food even when she ate her m orning and afternoon food in the morning. Cindy didn t notice that she was now faced with a new struggle that stood the ris k of making her fat, as opposed to her old struggle that only stood the risk of leaving her hungry a little longer than normal; until Cindy could not fit into h er costumes one day. The director was furious. The costumes were expensive. They could not start sewin g new costumes to fit her added weight with the budget the had. The director, like the rest of Hollywood was skinny - crazy so to him a movie wit h a female lead actor any short of skinny wasn t good even though it was a famil y friendly movie. He started thinking of a solution while Cindy was trying to lose weight while sti ll eating with her new eating formula that Jessica gave her. No matter what Cindy did, she kept gaining weight until a fitness trainer was ass igned to her and found out about her strange eating formula. Before Cindy could begin to properly loose weight some of the studio heads where already angry with the delay in the shooting and so they took advantage of a cla use in her contract that would have almost needed a magnifying glass to see to k ick Cindy off the set. Cindy s eyes opened when Jessica laughed at Cindy and told her that they had give n her her former role. Cindy now knew that we should be cautious about making friends or receiving advis e from people; especially when we find ourselves in environments where the peopl e are notorious for being ungodly.
