129. Daniel Fast: Reorientation, Not Detox

As announced, Daniel Fast is starting next Sunday. Daniel Fast is simply living 21 days (starting 21 days before Easter) with just vegetable and water, with media fast, focusing on prayer. Just like many of us, I get a bit anxious leading up to this time of the year. I love meat and sugary desert so that doesn’t make it any easier.

126. Two Awards

There was a Character Award ceremony in my kids’ school this week. Both of them were getting an award so we received an invitation to come for the ceremony. It was interesting that both of them were getting the same award for “optimism”. To be honest, their report cards are not so great academically but to see them getting awarded for their character was not only fulfilling but insightful. During the ceremony, it dawned on me that though there are…
