Fasting from Snacks...


My church recently had a 40 day fast... I did not participate.. My youngest daughter did - She did not fast from "food" - she fasted from candy... She fasted from her favorite thing.. She did this because she wanted to give God her best... and she did... On day 41.... She was tearing down the candy aisle.. My husband fasted from wine and all other liquors and salt.. On day 41 - he made himself a diet coke and Myers Rum.... My oldest decided she would fast from her electronics.. that lasted a day.... maybe 2.. (Today - both of my kids are fasting from their electronics - you can read about it here)

I am not Catholic so I do not participate in Ash Wednesday or Lent. But I do believe it is important to give God our Best.. Lent reminds us of Jesus' 40 day fast in the wilderness... Lent is a time to let go of an Earthy desire until Easter time...

I love to snack... whether it's my diet bars... ice chips (yep that's a favorite snack of mine) or a jar of chocolate frosting... I will not snack period.. I will eat my 3 meals and that's it... I know this is pretty small but God knows my heart and I know he likes it...

How about you?
