Hi Friends! I am still fasting—the church fast ends this coming Sunday. I had hoped to lose some weight as a perk to this fast, but I’ve only lost about 3 pounds in 3 weeks. That’s better than nothing. That is NOT a proper goal for a fast, anyhow. Not this type of fast. It is to bring me closer to God. I pray, but oh! how my mind wanders and will not focus! I am glad God is so kind and his tender mercies are new every morning! I need them. Don’t we all? Love to everybody!
