Fast- Day Two

I'm sitting here drinking my chocolate fast drink while I'm typing this and yes, I still think it tastes great! It went well yesterday and I weighed myself this morning and I've lost 2 pounds and some change. It's not really about that for me, but I thought someone might like knowing that.

I never struggled yesterday with feeling hungry or anything. I drank a TON of water and I'm sure that helped. It was just odd when it was supper time and Jeremy and I didn't have to make our big 'ol grilled whatever and tons of veggies. I gave all my boys haircuts instead! That was an adventure, let me tell ya!

I'm looking forward to finishing the fast today. My sister is on her way with her boys to celebrate this special weekend with us. I'm so excited to have them here! Oh, I went to Symon's school's Easter service yesterday and O-MY it was AWESOME!! To see all those precious children at praise & worship was just amazing. I had already been emotional from the day and that made me go over the edge. All of you out there reading this who are my brothers & sisters in Christ, understand what I'm talking about! This fast has come at such a significant time for all of us and it's made my heart stir in a special way. I also was reviewing my workshop for women's retreat next weekend and I cried almost non-stop!! That, is gonna have to change!! I can't be speaking through tears the whole time!! I'll have to keep working on it over the next few days so I won't be so emotional!! Ok, now I'm nervous again.

Well, I have to get housework done before my family gets here. I hope you all feel as loved as I do today. Jesus' Friday was the toughest thing anyone has ever had to go through and you may feel like you're in a "Friday" season right now. Just remember though, your "SUNDAY" is coming just as HIS did!! Look forward and rest on His promises.

  2. I'm the same way at church - when I see my children singing in the choir - all those precious babies singing the praise of Jesus, I get all choked up inside. That's the way it should be! Have a great day!

  3. C. I totally understand the emotionalness. Sheesh...I almost started crying just reading your post and thinking about that sight---kids all worshiping the Lord, hands raised. It melts my heart. It doesn't even have to be MY kids...just seeing that precious faith. You and I are SO much alike, I think.
    As for the fast, that is definitely something I would like to do. Wish I'd have thought of doing it on Easter weekend...what a great idea--and a way to gain perspective on the real reason we are celebrating!
