As we are ending Lent and headed for Resurrection Sunday, Dale decided that we would fast from sun down on Friday to sunrise on Sunday. I am now into this deal for about 6 hours and so far so good. I am kind of curious to see how the food cravings go tomorrow. I am sure the time spent in prayer and devotion will distract from my mind telling me that I need to break into the kid's Easter candy. By the way, we do not celebrate the Easter Bunny but we do have candy for the children on Easter morning. It is fun and a tradition. I am pretty sure I will be the first to wake up Sunday and eat candy. Hopefully, I will contain myself. My hope is that the next hours will not only bring me to a closer time with Christ but also ween me from "bad" foods. I hope that this small sacrifice of giving up food and spending extra time in prayer will bring me closer to my Savior.
