I made it through day one of fasting with little drama. It was actually better than I thought it would be. Seems the anticipation was worse than the experience; so far. I think there will be some tough things ahead.
It was a strange first day. Work was much busier than normal. On top of that, I spoke at JoAnn Smith’s funeral. JoAnn was our receptionist and lost a battle with cancer. JoAnn was the world’s best receptionist and lived with noble character. She taught us more than she will ever know. Thank you JoAnn, for the smiles, the laugh, the hard work, and the love for God that you lived out every day. We miss you.
I had a few other conversations with fellow fasters. The best piece of advice came from Nate Brown. “Don’t go to Wal-Mart if you are fasting. They have a ton of food there.” Point well made my friend.
I have noticed that things are slowing down a bit as I have given up food in exchange for juice and water. Slower is a good thing.
We begin day two.
