Fasting and Feasting

This is among the best devotional readings I've found on the web. The credit is given to Sr. Mary Jo Zacher from the March 1996 issue of The Searcher newsletter.

Fast from judging others
Fast from bitterness

Feast on Christ dwelling in them
Feast on forgiveness

Fast from words that pollute
Fast from self-concern

Feast on phrases that purify
Feast on compassion for others

Fast from pessimism
Fast from anger

Feast on optimism
Feast on patience

Fast from complaining
Fast from discouragement

Feast on appreciation
Feast on hope

Fast from idle gossip
Fast from worry

Feast on purposeful hope
Feast on prayer

From our home to yours,
