Feast or Fast??

I find this time of the year to be thoroughly…interesting! On Thursday some of us will celebrate by eating more than we thought humanly possible. (For those of you who have the will power to show self-restraint, good for you.) And if you have are married and both of your families reside in the area we will spend time buzzing back and forth to make sure and see everyone. Oh and should I dare mention the craziness of Black Friday! We are invited to eat a lot one day and spend a lot the next! As someone once said in a not-so famous movie “only in America!” I hope that our focus can truly be on more than consumption of food and stuff! Maybe we should begin to fast from the temporal and feast on the stuff that lasts! May I encourage you to spend so quality time with your family! Sit, relax, listen, laugh, nap and enjoy each other. “Life is but a vapor” as the Proverb goes…enjoy it while the vapor is still there!
