Since the beginning of January, I’ve been practicing daily intermittent fasting. I’m not typically one to embark on New Year’s Resolutions, but after a crazy autumn season and the holidays, I’d been feeling an uncomfortable fullness, like I was over-consuming food in general and needed to take a step back. Even though I was overeating, I felt hungry all the time. In fact, I never felt satiated.
One bright and beautiful Easter morning a minister shared the worst Children’s Sermon ever. He gathered the children at the front of the sanctuary and very carefully handed each one a big golden Easter egg—the kind that might contain the biggest prize of the annual Easter egg hunt.
It’s hard to remember in the thick of it, but most every time, our communities around us are gracious. Many times, they’ll applaud — and even be inspired by — our gentle personal boundaries that protect this most valuable, non-renewable asset.
