Day 6 of the Fruit Fast. As i type this blog, it is Friday evening. The sun as set and the rest, peace and quietness of the Sabbath hours are upon us here. It has been an interesting week, filled with fires that had to be put out. But all of that is behind me now. i have just prayed in preparation of tonight's online bible study. i pray that Christ will be uplifted and His Name honored and magnified. Today was a nice day in terms of the Fruit fast. i had a smoothie at about 8:30 this morning of approximately 44oz. Because of how the day went, i didn't end up taking anything else until about 5pm. My wife made me a salad of tomatoes, cukes and apples. i then added a sauce made from avocado, mango and tomato. i added some non-salt seasoning that a sister gave me, with some cayenne and alittle honey (please save the anti-honey comments as i believe i have heard them all).
i did some hops on the steps with a 8lb medicine ball combined with jumping jacks. i would do 25 hops and 25 jumping jacks in succession. i did 5 sets of these. Spiritually, i read Deuteronomy 5-9. Along with the gospels of John & Matthew and the books of Revelation and Ephesians, Deuteronomy is one of my favorite reads. One of my favorite verses there is Deut 8:3
And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
Here is the detail of today's fare:
44oz smoothie made from watermelon juice, bananas and strawberries. 3 other bananas and 2 navel oranges.
Large non-sweet fruit salad with cucumber, tomato, apple and avocado-mango-tomato sauce.
Spiritual bread: Deuteronomy 5-9.
Exercise: 250 hops/jumping jacks. 2 sets of 10 one leg squats.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
