Jamál (Beauty), 7 ʻAláʼ (Loftiness) 176 B.E. Sunday, March 8, 2020

On the Seventh Day of Fast1

Sleep arrives
on the wings of prayer
revealed for the Nineteen-day Fast,
and I realize that,
because of age and medication,
I miss fasting.

Gratitude List for 7 ʻAláʼ

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...that my Bank of America checking account isn't overdrawn today.
         *BulletV* ...for fresh brewed coffee on this beautiful winter morning.
         *BulletV* ...that I was able to pay part of the power bill today.

Kamál (Perfection), 8 ʻAláʼ (Loftiness) 176 B.E. Monday, March 9, 2020

On the Eighth Day of Fast2

I intone a prayer revealed for the Fast,
a prayer that begins praise of God,
a prayer the ask protection,
and request forgiveness.

I meditate,
I realize the prayer
encourages obedience
and trust in God--
the only protection in times of trouble.

Gratitude List for 8 ʻAláʼ

Today I am thankful ...
         *BulletV* ...for the breakfast cake I had for my morning snack.
         *BulletV* ...that my Bank of America checking account isn't overdrawn today.
         *BulletV* ...for fresh brewed coffee, with coffee grounds in the carafe.
         *BulletV* ...that I have 170 points in my Survey Junkie account.
         *BulletV* ...for the sausage and egg burrito I had for breakfast.
