Sabbath, February 6, 2010............Day 21

Day 21 of the Fruit Fast. We received a blizzard today of over a foot of snow. So it was another cozy & warm Sabbath in home. We did an online bible study around noontime. It was great and we could feel the Spirit of God move among us as the sense of Joy, peace and Love permeated our home. The watermelon i have been getting lately has been of not the best quality. But the thing i love about the watermelon is, even when the flesh is not of the highest quality, the juice always seems to be. i had about three quarters of a watermelon in the fridge and decided to juice it all up for breakfast. It was a smoothie made from the watermelon juice, about 8oz of OJ, 3 bananas and 4 strawberries. Delicious. My wife had about 16oz and i drank the rest (it was about 64oz). Needless to say, i didn't need anything else to eat for breakfast. Even though we stayed in today, the day still seemed to fly by way too quickly. For Dinner i had 32oz of OJ, 3 bananas and 1 avocado. My family usually fixes a treat for saturday night. This night my oldest daughter made some vegan cinnamin rolls. While the children enjoyed that, i drank an additional 24oz of OJ. Honestly, i was totally satisfied. My wife is on a 100% raw foray also and she is on day 21 as well. She is using some raw gourmet dishes and yesterday she had some delicious looking raw tacos. i am very happy for her and she seems very happy with her progress so far.

We have just pretty much completed our Paltalk study of the book of Ezekiel. Ezekiel is a book that i would say contains mature subject matter. If the Bible had movie ratings, it may be rated R. i can understand why nobody i ever met in the christian world really studied it indepth. Its a book that shows how the God of heaven really feels about things going on upon the earth and what He intends to do about it. Its like when someone vents in a torrent and another person may sarcastically say "Well, tell me how you really feel". That's Ezekiel.. But, as all books of the Bible, it not only tells it like it is, it also gives powerful promises to those Faithful to the Lamb of God. We'll be studying the Book of Romans starting Sunday evening. Very Powerful gospel book indeed.
