Fasting

This week my church is encouraging people to fast and pray for the church and our community. For the past year or so I have been really thinking about fasting, but have never done it. I came to the conclusion that I love food (mainly ice cream) way to much to not eat. I know that is a horrible reason not to fast, seeing that God told us to do it.

However, I have decided to "fast" from the computer. I'm going to go from tomorrow to next Monday with no computer. This means no email, no spider solitaire, and worst of all no blogging. Will I make it? I hope so! I don't think anyone has died from internet withdraw...have they? I might be the first.

Seeing that I spend WAY to much time on the computer, my hubby asked me if I was going to be spending all the time I would be on the computer in prayer. My answer to him was no. Yes I will be spending much more time in prayer, but I also want to spend time doing other things for the Lord. This may be cleaning the house, writing letters, or doing laundry but I will be doing them for the Lord.

Please pray for me this week while I'm internet free!!!

That is a very noble thing! I am not sure if I could do it. I have tried to stay computer-free twice a week and even those days I seem to find a reason to get online :(

It was so great to meet you two in person! You guys are just so cute. I'm sorry we had to leave in such a hurry to take Mike to work! I'm sure he would have rather called off! lol

Thank you so, so, so much for the school supplies! I can't get over how much stuff was in there! Emme was super excited about some silly putty, snow globe, and the puzzles! I have almost everything put away on our school shelves already! I think I'm set for a couple of years! (hugs)

And finally -- I MEANT to show you my CVS booty from yesterday! I had it all setting out on the kitchen table! I had 6 Ragus, 1 Skippy, 3 two-liters of pop, Caress body wash, 5 tubes of toothpaste, 2 Ban deoderants and a couple other things that I got for 1.74! And I got back 17 in ecb's. Darnit.

Well, after you are off of your computer fast, email me about getting your box back to you! Or you can just call me!

Thanks to Donnie too!
