Default My Fasting Routine

Just because it is a time to fast doesnt make me feel like I cant have a little fun. A fast on water and bread is too difficult for me. In another thread here I read that maybe we can take a broader view of fasting. So I came up with my own routine.

Bread w/ a little mayonese and tabasco sauce
Coffee w/optional cream and sugar
A Multiviatamin
A chocolate Truffle of one's own choice.

No offense, but, your fast would make anyone want to never eat again!
yuk! lol
mayo and tabasco?

But, I guess if it entails a sacrifice it is considered a fast in God's eyes, so, good job!

No offense taken, it was a joke. I actually like mayo and tabasco on french fries. I realize that is kind of weird so I am making fun of myself.

Funny joke! Part of my personality is that I don't always get the joke! lol
It seems that many times I make others laugh 'cause I just don't get it.
And that is ok. As long as I know they laugh not to make fun but just because it is funny!

One observation I have concerning fasting.

Why, why, why, why and why does it seem that at the instant a person (me)decides to fast that suddenly the things that before I never gave a hoot about, suddenly they become forbidden fruits of miraculous nature that I MUST HAVE!! Why is that?
I hate certain things, but, I guarantee you, if I decided to fast from them, I would LOVE them REAL SOON! ie; cheesecake. I really do not like it, but, if I decided to offer it up to God, I know I would begin to dream of it and crave it in a rabid manner!!

Just a musing of mine.

God Bless,

ps. Please pray for me. I just signed up for Adoration Chapel at 11pm on Fridays. The bad one seems to be hating me a lot as of now and I am having trouble keeping to Christ's admonitions. Please pray for myself and my family.

I usually mix ketchup with mayo or ranch dressing for
my fries. I'll have to give the tabasco a try.

Not to sound gross.....but I mix tapatio hot sauce with my Best Foods Mayonaise.

This made my wife want to puke when I'd spread it on bread with eggs over easy, and cheese. Sometimes I'd want some ketchup on there too. Who needs NFP when I'm eating like that?

But my wife did just get wasabe mayo at Trader Joe's the other day. Now why didn't I think of that?

Blessed Mother Mary.......Ark of the New Covenant.......pray for us.
