Daniel's Fast

We are going to participate in a church wide Daniel Fast. If you don't know what that is here is:

Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, ‘Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.’ So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.”

Well there is alot more too it, so if you want more info google, Daniel Fast.

Ok so Scott is very excited to do this, me not so much. I guess I just love my meat that it will be hard and challenging. Well that is the name of the game this New Year, right? So starting on Thursday (Jan. 9) we will begin a total veggie/fruit/nut and water diet. Yea! J and S will NOT be affected by this, they also will NOT be participating (although with the exception of bread J kind of does this now, since we eat organic peanut butter) So it will be even more tempting since we will have to fix them food to maintain their health while not eating it ourselves.

I wonder if I will make it?

This should be a very interesting 10 days for you and Scott. I know that y'all can do it and reap great rewards. Jack might even try some new fruits and veggies along with his weiners and nuggets.
