The 2-Week Slump

Back to fasting: I ate fried chips and a cheesecake yesterday. I told myself that unlike Daniel, I will now be eating diary and that chips are made from potato (although the restaurant probably did not fry them in coconut oil, I decided that I was not going to obsess over this).

Distant and angry at God…..finally hope creeps in

When you have lived in the World for so long, everything becomes normalised.
