It's been an interesting week. I went from eating whenever I want to one meal a day (and something very small in order to take my medicine in the morning). I get all the water I care to drink....and today is the first day I am ok with water again because, really, you feel like you might drown in all that water you are chugging down just to curb the hunger.
In the last week I have learned a few very intensely personal things that I have shared with only Mark.....out here is too public for some things. Sorry, folks. I've learned that I CAN go without....it's not easy and it's not fun, but it is possible.
God has showed up. So did fat bastard (FB) but God was right there giving me the TRUTH that I was seeking. It's so hard to decipher who is who sometimes. FB has an incredible ability to sound so not like him....soothing, reassuring and if you don't pay attention you can mix it all up. But God's light was shining on the truth and I have what I can call a victory about my thinking in one area of my life. God is also convicting me on something else and He is showing me the right path to travel. I am SO not happy about it, but you can't only follow when it's fun and painless.
Other than that, all is well. Mark is so inspiring to watch as he does his fast. I think the guy has the willpower of....well....I don't know what, but he is so good about his decision. No cheating (that I know of!) and we decided today that we want to do a 24 hour fast once a month. I know! Crazy, right?! We are only 8 days into this 40 day fast and we are already making plans for others. I'm very proud (and lucky!) to have such an awesome guy like Mark in my life. His desire to seek God is very heartwarming and I am learning so much by watching his faithfulness.
