Think FAST


Beginning tomorrow morning when I wake up,
I'm taking a blog fast.
No social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram),
no checking email,
no reading my very-most favorites.
Don't get me wrong... I've still got things lined up,
and trust me, you don't want to miss tomorrow's post or Friday's link-up.

Of course, this will only be thru Saturday,
but I thought I should let you know.
No emailing me Thursday looking for a response by Friday.
Not going to happen.

Monday, I mentioned that Daniel and I will be attending our church's Encounter this weekend.
It's Thursday evening, all day Friday, and all day Saturday.
I'm going to be completely taken out of my normal routine,
and plugged into some one-on-one time with me and God.
I'm incredibly excited.

No staying at my house, no going to work (Friday), 
no thinking about materialistic, daily-stress, or "have-to" things.
I'm going to focus, pray, ask for help, peace and serenity, and take this time away.
Can't wait to see what this Encounter will bring!

I think this is going to be such an amazing few days for you. Just this morning I left my phone at home and realized it as I was on my way to work. It felt so strange at first and then I decided to embrace not being connected in that one way for the day.

I LOVE your dress too, btw :)

Have fun! I've been tempted once or twice to do a Media fast, fortunately I usually talk myself out of it. I'm curious to hear how it goes.

I think you are going to change a lot, Annelise. I remember I did when I went in 2007. I didn't sleep very much because I was thinking about a lot though.
