Ever have a completely
idea and wonder if
you're losing your marbles
if God is calling you to
do something odd?
Then I start wondering:
If I did it, would it not end up
being odd at all?
I really hate when people do weird
stuff and say God called them to do it.
But here I sit wondering if I'm
about to be one of them!
What is this hairbrained idea, you ask?
Well, it's like this...
This crazy idea keeps surfacing.
It keeps coming up.
I keep wanting to research it.
I keep wondering if I could do it...
If I SHOULD do it...
GO ON A MILK AND JUICE FAST
I'm not sure if that's what I would call it.
Milk and juice FAST

to abstain from milk and juice.
What I'm considering is
ONLY consuming milk and juice
Before you go weird on me,

wants me to do this is because, well,

THERE IS NO WAY.
I've looked into it a little bit.

the Milk Diet
where people literally only drink milk.
But they drink raw milk, which is
not practical for me, so I would
need to drink O.J. to compensate.
The other important part about the
"diet" is that I am supposed to rest
as much as possible while on it;
as if recovering from illness.
This piqued my curiosity.
This is the point where my engines
started working overtime and the idea
started getting obsessive.
WHAT A MARVELOUS IDEA!
What better way to prepare my heart
REST and reflection
on the past year.
REST and single-minded focus
on the year to come.
I've often admired various
religions for their emphasis
Without having to wonder what I'm
going to be eating every moment of the day
I will free up that part of my brain
to focus on God
and the birth of his only son.
By AGGRESSIVELY resting, I am
taking care of and listening to
which (in theory) should help me
to differentiate between my own
I think I may have just
talked myself into this
I'll start December 1,
and I'll end with Christmas Eve dinner
(because no way am I missing
Maybe I'll blog about it.
Maybe I won't.
So what do you think?
What would YOU do?
