Sorry for the delay in updating Isaiah's blog. He did great with his fast and spinal tap last week. It's remarkable how quickly he bounces back from these things. The fasts are always challenging, but he draws great strength from knowing that others are fasting with him.
We talked several weeks ago about the role of our "will" in dealing with discomfort. I was surprised but encouraged when Isaiah repeated a phrase I used a month ago in the form of a question: as we drove to the hospital he asked me, "Dad, is your will telling your tummy, 'Sshhh!'?"
I smiled and said, "Yes! Is yours?"
He smiled back. I said, "All this fasting sure is making our wills strong!"
He said, "Ya.... but I kinda wish I could eat!"
