    To fast or not to fast

    Earlier this year, the Lord graciously allowed me to fast and pray for longer than i thought i could:). Fasting is not a popular topic, nor activity among Christians, if i may say so.

    Wonderful, broken people

    I was still groggily listening to Christian radio this morning, but could not help hearing and remembering the words 'wonderful, broken people.'
