Check your calendars…..
Okay, maybe I’m the only one checking calendars around this joint!…Anyhoo, my 21 day fast? Almost over. And while I realize that I am supposed to be praying more and concentrating more on my relationship with God, for the last day or so my thoughts have consistently turned to food, glorious food!
I was the same way last year as the end of the fast approached. I had all these grand ideas on what my first meal after the fast would be. In reality, the first thing I had was a piece of toast and a cup of tea with honey. Finest breakfast ever! I’ll probably repeat that menu this year. And head straight to IHOP after church for a short stack and a cup of decaf.
While I am really, really, really looking forward to that piece of toast on Sunday morning, I have to say that taking the focus off of myself and what I want in order to concentrate more fully on God has been wonderful. I feel as though our relationship has been strengthened and I am more in tune with Him…He spoke and I listened. I spoke and He listened. Who could ask for better?
