On Fasting II

The boys and I will be fasting from this evening until the same time (more or less) on Good Friday evening.  I think we are expecting this to last about 22 hours.  Our reasons have been explained in a previous post, which I will link to below.

The plan is to stop eating shortly after the Maundy Thursday Communion service.  Drinking is OK, though.  I think God will understand if I don't want dehydrated kids! The plan so far has gone reasonably well.  After getting home from communion we did take some time to have dessert and to consume anything else we thought our body might need to burn tomorrow.  Now we are off to bed.  I will let you know how things turn out...

Here is the link to that earlier post.
