    I will give up soda. Does it count if I am giving it up also to lose weight? I will try to fast a meal once a week also.

    K…. so this link totally made me feel weak about prior commitment. Luv my morning coffee & juice and a nice sports drink or even a cold one here and there. So Gabe and I decided to join this effort for the next 40 days… http://www.bloodwatermission.com/fortydays.php
    It reminded me that there are people who would be happy to have something to sacrifice. It reminded me that there are people who make sacrifices every day just to get clean water to drink…. So that’s what I’m hoping to remember every day of this 40 day challenge: As I drink only water,… clean water that I can effortlessly obtain… I pray that this tiny sacrifice will help me become even more aware of how blessed I truly am.
