After making the soup, I quickly headed to bed to read, so as not to smell the tempting aromas of my soon to be first meal in seven days. Bedtime this evening, 10:30pm.
I want to take a moment to thank Andy for going to the grocery store to pick up my veggies for my first meal and also for being especially courteous not to eat his meals at home in front of me - he's been super supportive this whole week and words cannot express how grateful I am to have him in my life and how much I love him.
"Fasting is important, more important perhaps, than many of us have supposed,... when exercised with a pure heart and a right motive, fasting may provide us with a key to unlock doors where other keys have failed; a window opening up new horizons in the unseen world; a spiritual weapon of God's provision, mighty, to the pulling down of strongholds."
