Tuesday Poem and Gratitude List
Fiḍál (Grace), 2 ʻAláʼ (Loftiness) 176 B.E. Tuesday, March 3, 2020

On the Second Day of Fast1

I read a prayer
revealed for the nineteen-day Fast,
and contemplate letting go.

In its essence fasting
is letting go of the desires of the flesh--
such as food and drink--
and holding onto spiritual qualities--
such as faith in God
and forgiveness.

At 73
I am learning to let go
of the prejudices
and fears
that come between me
and the Glorious Lord.

Gratitude List for 2 ʻAláʼ

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...for the chocolate covered whooper I had last night before going to bed.
         *BulletV* ...that I have 917 points in my Survey Junkie account.
         *BulletV* ...for fresh brewed coffee on this chilly winter morning.
         *BulletV* ...that my Bank of America checking account is not overdrawn today.
         *BulletV* ...for the yogurt I had to go with my breakfast.
