Prayer and Fasting

Happy Birthday, ICMS, I love you.

It occurred to me this morning, before I even got out of bed, that I need (maybe we all need?) a break from teh internets.

Nice people are showing signs of strain. It's been a very, very, tough week.

I'm gonna close my laptop and tape the word "fasting" on the top. And when I see that word, I hope I will remember to silence my monkey mind* and think about all the breaks Jesus took. Have you ever noticed that? "Asleep on a pillow." "Jesus withdrew."

Matthew 12, Mark 3, Luke 5. HUT!

(Okay, you quasi-agnostic lefty blogospherians don't need to take me too seriously.)

Back Monday or Tuesday, at the latest.

*Monkey Mind. Yeah, that's Buddhism, I'm fruit cocktail when it comes to faith, a little of everything, but Jesus is the maraschino cherries.


  1. Have a good rest and we will all catch up again next week!


  2. Hey! Even us hardcore lefty atheists can take a little religious allegory.

    Taking a break every now and then is a good thing. Enjoy.

  4. I can relate.

    Rest the rest of the righteous.

    But don't make a habit of this!

  5. hey bluegal you should have someone blog in your stead while you are gone to keep continuity.
