Wow, the things that fasting and praying does. This week has been full of ups and downs. A few to include me getting locked out of the house and me breaking the juicer. The lockout was kinda funny. Tuesday afternoon I had taken the trash out and Corgan ran up behind me and shut the door. Before I could get back to the door he locked it. I was banging on the door and yelling his name. I guess maybe I scared him because he ended up locking himself up in his room! I was stuck outside in a short-sleeved shirt, pants and socks for almost an hour until Marshall got home. My feet were like ice cubes by the time he got home...brrrrr. Then on Thursday night I accidentally broke the juicer. I'd been doing a juice fast and also eating fruits and veggies. Well since then I've had to alter my plans. I've been making sure I'm eating healthy. That's a sacrifice for me cause we've been such unhealthy eaters. I'm hoping by the end of this fast that I won't want to quit eating healthy. I already find myself craving celery! :)

I noticed after I got out of the shower today that my long-term skin rash is just about gone!! Fasting has helped to heal my body. I've also lost weight. While those aren't my reasoning for fasting, they sure are a nice benefit.

Jeremy and I did a long fast just like the one you are on last year. The health benefits were amazing.
