Wow! We started with a bang today, ha! Allen said March is coming in like a lion and he is right. We spent half of our night in a storm shelter, we went back and forth between there and the camper. At one point, Allen was questioning all of our lives choices that got us into this old country store basement at 1 am! There were more dogs than people in there, he really cracks me up! All we could do was laugh at that point in the morning/night!
I had all of these days prior to today to prep for the fast and had all of these good ideas, and oops I did none of them. Thankfully I had a banana on stand by! I hope that you all are considering an area in your life that you need to focus on.
We have all picked a weakness and are excited to face these days ahead, Emerson is giving up his very favorite thing of all, vanilla ice cream and chocolate. I loved his desire to do something like this, Cobe took a bit longer to decide. He kept trying to give up things that he didn’t like, in the end he decided on chocolate. Which is big for him! I love that they are digging into this with their momma and daddy! I’m proud of the young men they are becoming. Allen is not having any sweets, pray for us all! Ha!
When we use the discipline it requires to walk away from some of our favorite things, we have no choice but to grow! If you haven’t decided on anything, it’s not too late. You can begin tomorrow! I’m excited to lay sugar down for this time, I’m excited I have some of you to bounce yummy ideas around with. Even though I tried to make excuses last night to keep Facebook on my phone because of the storm. I didn’t! I wanted to use this whole storm catastrophe as an excuse but I didn’t. I hope you will draw your strength from the Lord as you begin this journey!
Please share your ideas and comments about what you are fasting from on here. I can’t wait to watch this process!
