Today is Day 3 of the Baha'i nineteen day Fast. We do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. Exemptions are made for illness, pregnancy, nursing, and those engaged in hard physical labor. None of these apply to me, so I am able to Fast and I enjoy this time of forced slowing down which leads to reflection on what is important in my life. I also LOVE that first sip of water at sunset.
