Fasting from Luxuries, Feasting on Gratitude

. at . Leave a comment

I am fasting from commercialism this month. I am feasting on gratitude.

I kept a Gratitude Journal the first time I participated in the 30 Days of Nothing challenge. Click here to see some of what I was grateful for the first time around. This was my way of balancing all the “no’s” in my life.

  • No, you cannot buy a scalloped oval shaped punch.
  • No, you may not drive to the store for window shopping.
  • No, you don’t need another cool pen.
  • No, this book is not a necessity.

So, on this 1st day of nothing, what am I grateful for? I am grateful that . . .

  • My house is not in danger from the hurricane Gustav.
  • Our political system allows for the parties to freely pick their own candidates for President and Vice president.
  • This upcoming election will be historic. We will either have our first African American as prez or woman as vice prez.
  • My prayers for both are accepted by God to do with as He pleases to His glory.
