I was going to try to be incredibly creative and profound with this post – but then I remembered that is just not me. I have been thinking about God, medicine, and health a lot lately. Being a Christian and a diabetic is a unique combination that I do not always understand. But that’s not what this point is about.
First I have some prayer requests I would like to submit a request to the praying blogosphere. I don’t know how I found this blog, but I have been incredibly moved ever since. If you have not visited Confessions of a CF Husband and read the journey he and his amazing wife are on please go there right now and you will cry, laugh, and be moved all at the same time. And I know that they covet your prayers during incredible time in their lives.
Second, a daughter of a close family friend has been diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma. It is a pretty serious cancer and this sweet little girl is only in fourth grade with 2 younger sisters. The links above will take you to more information about it. It was found in her head/neck area when her ear drum burst right before Christmas. Also, her aunt, uncle, and cousins are currently living in Sri Lanka as missionaries so the family is feeling the pain of separation even more at this time. I am sure they will covet your prayers as well. They don’t have a website yet, but I know they are working on one. If it is public, I will let you know.
I feel selfish asking this now at the bottom of this post, but I have a personal question too. For the current book club selection at my work, we are reading Richard Foster’s Celebration of Discipline. One of the chapters is on fasting. Now I know I don’t have to fast, or fast necessarily from food (that’s not the points of fasting), but could I? Let’s say my basal settings are perfect – is it possible? Have any of you ever done it?
