This is our story, our journey, our testimony…..
It’s the fourth day of my Daniel fast. For the people who don’t know what the Daniel fast is you can find a detailed explanation on the website of allaboutprayer.org. This a short version of the way I explain it; The Daniel fast is based on the verses 2 and 3 of chapter 10 in the book of Daniel. Daniel was a determined man with clear ideals and to achieve this he did not hide his feelings for anyone and was not out to please man. On the contrary , he took a personal initiative to begin a fast that kept him focused on what was truly God’s will.
OooooH what a weekend it was, hot weather, wine, chats, laughter… let me start from the beginning.
It is Friday! WoWoW..but it is not just another Friday, it is the sisters retreat weekend!
“I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me – like food or water.”
Ray Charles could not have said it better. My mother have told me that I would move around in her womb on the sound of music. Coming from a grandfather who was a dancer, a home were music was our daily bread and my father who would start moving on the beat of the sounds of pots and pans, it was not strange that later in life I would be a music – dance lover.
Busy…busy…busy… so little time, so much to do. That is all I hear around me. Being busy all the time can creep up on you and before you know it, you will be a cranky person, who does not have time for the people around you but even worse not having time for God. STOP! and think about what you are doing, look around you and breath. Do not take the 24 hours that are given to you for granted, life is to short! It is time to live the abundant life. The question is, what is the abundant life? Well look no further than the book that can give you all the answers…the Bible!
