A Day for Patience

Fast from all food and caloric drinks until 5 PM.  Among the many lessons of fasting, patience is a key one.  As the day goes on and hunger grows the desire for food will also grow.  But we must wait, we must learn to be patient in the fulfilling of this desire.  In fasting deliberately for one day we are training ourselves to be patient for other times when we must put our desires on hold and wait.
