Day 4: Fasting From the Internet and MORE!

Picture 083

Sorry for being for being MIA yesterday, but as you can see I was fasting from the internet. This by far was the hardest day for me so far. I know it sad that I am so attached to the internet, but it’s my source of communication for a lot of things. It was great to take 24 hours to just sit back and realize that the internet is a wonderful luxury, and that all that are in our world wide family do have not this convenience. 

So far I have given up Independence, Rushing, Sleep, the Internet, and now today I am to give up spending Money.

Most Westerners don’t usually have to make excruciating financial decisions, like whether to spend our last dollars on food for our children or on medicine for our dying spouse. We unconsciously act as if money could take care of all of our needs, while many poor people have learned the secret to desperately waiting on God for even their most basic necessities. It’s hard for us to understand that feeling of vulnerability and powerlessness, so choose today not to spend any money and instead taste the kind of freedom that comes from relying ONLY on God. What if we let God have a say in every single purchase we made?

WOW, what an humbling challenge, obviously 24 hours without spending a single one of my dollars won’t be as challenging(especially since I am going on a retreat), but what a thought proving idea “spend our last dollars on food for our children or on medicine for our dying spouse.”

Could you fast from Money for today??


Yesterday was our End of the Summer Celebration at work and they sure went all out for us! In the morning we had pastries and coffee and then more fun flowed into the afternoon. Every department had a different decade to dress up as, our department was asked to dress up like the “future”. We decided to be funny and dress up as what we thought we would all look like in the “future”.

Celinda and Tiffany were two adorable old women.
