I was sooo sick last night & this morning - just not as bad today....think I will walk on the thread mill to sweat it off!
sore throat, cough & low grade fever. The hubby says it's from lack of nutrients - he is right to a point. even tough I initially thought it was the bug going around my home -but now, I do realize that I am just cleansing my system from toxins - and my body is going through withdrawal of alcohol & toxic food consumption. I drank some carrot juice & a sip or two of vegetable juice before going to sleep last night. I slept for approx. 12 hours!! (7-7) and I felt so bad because my sister-in-law came to spend time with the family yesterday. the good news is that she is still here...she is watching a movie with the kids now----surely she will come upstairs to ask why I am not joining them, and I will explain that I am not watching the tube during lent.....so far, I am not missing it at all...SHOCKER!!! But I will catch up on my DVR tomorrow..Sunday is the only day I am allowing myself to watch ).. I have always like spending time & connecting. Just my bad habits & vices have kept me from doing it enough. We don't do that enough as a family... Not that that is a news flash, but I just never do anything about it, which is the sad part. And more so because as the Wife and Mother of this home - it is my responsibility to set the tone. My hubby does plenty with the kids & is involved in all details of my home -- but I have known he does extra to make up for my lack of desire ----couch potato disease!
Nothing like the present though- which is why I NEED to see this through. My fast from excessive consumption-- food, alcohol, television---it has all contributed to my losing focus. To know that I have officially become a couch potato,,,UGH! To preach on to my Momma about wasting her life away with her constant complaining, misery and lusting/needing the man who will never be hers (my Father) and to now know that I am no different. only difference is our choice of vices - but no different. For God to give me the wonderful gift of life and to literally waste it on bull crap....what a tragedy!
I am now sipping on the most amazing tea - "TAZO, WELL-BEING' rest" How appropo, no?
Maybe that will be the name for my next fast? A 'well-being' fast... I know that I may be jumping the gun here a little bit -(thinking on my next fast? Crazy!)Planning is good though - maintenance to a life-long God plan....is a wise thing Gurlfriend!... because I WILL get through this journey to connect with God and myself.
A gift not wasted.
..and if I learn anything through this fast, I don't think I will have to do it again? I think it is human & not pessimistic of me to know that I may need a reminder every now & then...so maybe I will call it: the "God-Maintenance-well-being-remember-what-you've-learned-and-do-I-need-to-crack-you-over-the-head-fast"? LOL okay....now I am losing it!
I will attempt & try to continue the starting of my read of the book '90 Minutes In Heaven' I began to read it over two weeks ago, and have not picked it up more than once. I guess I should have waited to read it. The day prior to starting to read this book, I had just finished reading a book called ??? crap, can't recall name - but it was about a woman (Doctor) who tells her story about dying on a trip canoieng (?)with her - husband and friends in Costa Rica(?) SO she tells her story of dying & life after - going the most majestic place (heaven). The author was so ever engaging. SHE died, recounts what happens,,,who she met and what she felt. Of her sadness in having to come back to her family but so happy because of it. It was a good book! Anyhoo, the different writing styles of the two authors.??....uhm, this book is just not as quick to captivate....but I will give this second book the chance it so deserves.
