    Re: Lenten Fast

    Hey MGee, I would think that it would be hard being around others eating, but I guess its all part of the sacrifice. Since I am not fasting (only the no meat Friday), I don't have any good tips for you, maybe those who are will come along with some. I would think you have to find a distraction, praying, reading, listening to music etc.

    Yesterday at church we had a luncheon and invited a parishioner and he said since he fasted during the days of Lent he would pass on the offer, I guess when it can be avoided you can excuse yourself from those events? I use to have several co-workers who observed Ramadan and you didn't know unless you offered them something to eat and they declined, but they were surrounded by everyone else eating all the time. I don't know what my point is, I think I am saying it takes practice.

    As you can see in my signature the Psalm I enjoy the most is Psalm 27.
    Psalm 27: The Lord is my Light and my Salvation whom shall I fear?
