Can you hear the angels singing?

It has arrived.
Hallelujah sings my soul.
It is January 21st.
Which means it is the final day of my 21 day Daniel fast.
21 days of only drinking water.
21 days of no meat or sugar or bread or milk or cheese or coffee for crying out loud.
21 days of oil and vinegar and alfalfa sprouts with more oil and vinegar.

It has been unenjoyable.
There has been wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I have longed to thrust my head in a big ole bowl of mashed potatoes with butter, yes butter, lots and lots of butter.

Tonight, oh the anticipation,  I just might set my alarm for 12:01. I just might rise from my sleeping slumber and gorge on chocolate and peanut butter pretzels.  I could if I want to.

But I won’t.  Because I desire sleep more than I desire food.  And it would probably give me a tummy ache.

Saturday, as soon as I suck down 2 cups of coffee with french vanilla creamer,  I am baking this, and nobody can stop me.  So don’t even try.  It’s the Pioneer Woman’s Perfect Pound Cake.

Do you know how much I love pound cake?  If you don’t, now you do. 
If we are ever on a game show like the Newlywed Game (which would be way weird) and you’re asked my favorite food.  Say pound cake. 
Or cereal. 
It’s a toss up.

I would love to bake it Friday immediately after work, but we have plans.  We’re dressing up, then we are having supper at a ritzy joint and afterwards attending a symphonic presentation.  It’s like a date.  Sorta.

I only hope my gastrointestinal system is up for it.

I’m Angel, a.k.a. Rocket Surgeon, and these are my chronicles. I love writing and I believe our stories should be shared, so here you’ll find anecdotes of my life, loves, worries, fears, joys, and experiences. I blog about my mishaps and adventures as a wife, mommy, auntie, wanna-be writer, teacher, Texan, country/city/mountain girl, cereal killer and Jesus-freak. A few things you might discover about me: •Jesus is my everything; without Him I am nothing, but with him I can do all things •My family makes this world a better place for me to live in •I adore chickens, the live ones, although the cooked ones aren’t too bad either •I have 2 dogs: Grace and Ozzie. And one cat: Rocky Muffin •My dream job would be to raise chickens and write best sellers Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I know your time is valuable and I honor you for spending a few moments here with me. I hope you find something to brighten your day, lighten your load, make you chuckle and remind you of the good in the world. “When you look for the bad in mankind, expecting to find it, you surely will." Pollyanna I’m always eager to meet new online friends, so leave a comment and introduce yourself.

  1. i kinda thought that the fast might be ending.i'm really enjoying your blogs, kinda miss the going ons out on the golden spread. but, your blogs bring a small bit of sunshine to an otherwise dismal winter. i'm ready to sit out on the porch in a nice sunshiney rocking chair, and watch the kittens stalk the birds that come to the feeders to free load. dad


  2. I am soooooo very proud of you for completing that fast successfully, and without cheating even once. I am also soooooo proud of you for being the Jesus freak that you are, and for the love and service that you give Him!
