Twenty days is a long time. It's a long time when you are trying to be single minded in your efforts. It's a long time to commit to staying away from something that has become as much a habit as coffee in the morning... which is exactly why fasting accomplishes the purpose of the one who is honored in our sacrifice. Last night was the wrap up party celebrating Forty Days For Life. Today, I may be back at the keyboard but my desire is to continue to be reminded in this simple act of blogging, of the twenty days for change that funneled my thoughts and my prayers. It was good. Lives were saved. Mine was changed. Soon I will detail some wonderful ways the Lord moved in my heart. I look forward to sharing here again.
After twenty days of looking at the same picture on my computer screen (as I changed the reminder countdown) I decided to make a wreath using the flowers from the arrangement that decorated my table when the decision was first made to begin this fast. A visual reminder of an important time of growth.
Thank you all for your support and prayers. I'm so glad to be part of the family of God! And I'm so glad to be back.
