As the New Year started I began a 21 day fast of only liquids. This is the start of my 7th day and I am pleased that the past 6 days have been victorious, with God's help.
Our lives are built around a lot of eating, and celebrating with food, so giving up food is truly a test and fast for me. I pray that I will be successful in this endeavor and Im listening for what God speaks to me during this fast.
I thought about doing a post just about fasting, but decided instead to share these very important occasions from our first week in the New Year of 2012.
First, our grandson Aric had minor surgery on Wednesday the 4th. We left our house at 6:45 and arrived at the hospital by 7:30. Aric had pre-op and the surgery was at 10. Everything went perfect and was successful and we give God, and the doctor, praise for that.
Aric had not eaten since 8:30 Tuesday night and he had said he wanted to go to Red Robin after the surgery. He was released at 3:30.
Then Thursday Marc had asked us to come to their home in the afternoon to be with Aric as he had a prior dental appointment that he had to keep. We arrived about 1:30. I decided to ride along with Marc and visit one on one with him when he left at 3 and Mickey stayed with Aric.
Marc wanted to prepare dinner for us!!! Which he did.
Another view of the meal and these 3 wonderful men in my life. 3 generations!!!! Isn't that wonderful? You can see Aric is doing just fine.
