Jump Start

Just like a car sometimes needs a jump start to get things going, we are feeling the need for a jump start in a couple of areas: physical and spiritual.

So, we are fasting. I haven't been able to do a total fast in over 4 years since I've been either nursing or pregnant for over 4 years now. :) I have done little fasts from time to time, fasting certain things. But, we are now fasting meats and sweets, starting today and ending Mar. 1st.

Firstly, spiritually we just feel like we need to get things more in order. This discipline of fasting certainly does that. And calling on God to help in time of restraint is key, not just trying to use your own willpower to do it...that defeats the purpose.

Secondly, this will also hopefully get us back on track in eating healthy, no matter who is around, what food is around, or where we are.

We are buffeting our bodies. Not always fun, but good for the soul (our bodies too).

I'm telling you all of this because I will also be fasting from the computer for the first week. Craziness...I like to stay informed and in touch with all of you. But, just so you know, that's why you won't be hearing from me for a while.

If you need to get in touch with me before next Monday, just go to our website, click on Contact Us, and either call us or email Joel...www.EbersoleOnline.com.

Have a great week!

Enjoy the extra time with God and your family! Not cooking meat each evening and baking and eating extra treats will multiply your time and energy really let you focus on God. I'm praying you have a sweet times with Him! I'll miss your blog but can't wait to hear what God has to say to you.
