Fasting!

I mentioned that soon I would be fasting, so let me explain a bit more. Todd and I are planning on fasting in January for 21 days. I am giving up tv, internet, and sweet tea!! I know sweet tea will be super hard! I would rather drink sweet tea than eat, haha!! Todd is giving up sweets, tv, internet, and sodas. He has already started drinking water, but I am downing the sweet tea like it is going away forever!!!

Why are we fasting? Well, I know it will help us get even closer to God. Instead of watching tv we will be reading the Bible and hanging with Jesus!!!! I really wanted to go all out and just drink liquids but I am scared that I would faint or something b/c of my whole PCOS blood sugar levels thingie! And a fainting mommy will not be a good mommy :D

And in the scheme of things what I am giving up for 21 days is nothing to what Jesus did for us!! We already know the end of the story and through Christ we are saved!! So after Jan. 1st I will be gone for 21 days!! I will miss y'all a bunch and be thinking about you all!!! And when I get back I will fill ya in on how the fast went and do some catch up reading!

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! And if you aren't saved or don't know Jesus I encourage you to get to know HIM!!! He is the ONLY way!!!!
