Okay, folks, I'm fixin' to do it. Tomorrow I'm starting the Master Cleanser fast (sounds like I'm going to swallow Drain-O!) Anyway, all seriousness aside, I need your prayers.
I haven't fasted since 1978(!) To be honest, I was seriously questioning if I could go through with it. But last year I'd gotten hay fever for the first time in my 54 years and have not been able to breath without a steady supply of nose-spray. As anyone knows, it's not good to be constantly hosing off your sinuses with chemicals. I knew I needed find a healthier solution.
Now for a couple of miracles. I was questioning whether or not the Lord really wanted me to go through with this so imagine my amazement when I went the store & they had lemons on sale for 1/4 of the price! They were already dirt cheap and then this! Then this Saturday, my husband and I were shopping and in the middle of the dog food isle I suddenly remembered I had to buy Maple Syrup. That's the part of the fast that keeps your blood sugar up. It can't be just any maple syrup, it has to be grade B or C. I figured they most likely didn't have it. I walked around the corner and not only did they have the best grade, but they had biologically grown maple syrup...only natural, no chemicals were used. That was surprising in itself, but then, the last miracle, it was also on sale. I was convinced.
So, all of these things together, plus the Lord preparing me mentally and emotionally, I've decided to go through with it.
I'm making this sound like the maiden flight of the Wright brother's, but I want to encourage anyone who reads this that there is a coward on the other side of this keyboard. So if I can do it and it proves beneficial, then I know anyone can do it.
I will keep you posted.
