Didn’t know if I would journal about this or not. But I think I will. It’s such a big part of my life right now. Our church (4 campuses, thousands of people) under guidance of Jentezen Franklin, is doing a 21 day fast. It is hard. I am not even doing the strict fast, but a very modified version. I did give up pop-tarts and sweets and meat and most everything except fruit, veggies and water and flavored water. The purpose is to move closer to God. I know it sounds weird to people who have never tried it. I am in week 2, and getting along okay. It also is a time for reading the Bible more, and praying. Praying BIG. I am including all of you in my prayers, especially those of you I know. But also journalists I haven’t read who I know have big troubles, on here. My church is a charismatic church and takes the Bible very seriously. It is also warm and loving and full of laughter and friendships. Wonderful church. I wish I could invite each one of you to come with me. Meanwhile, think of me as I struggle to keep this modified fast. Thanks!
