Ramadan Reasoning

Back in June when I signed up for a five-day art workshop including lunch which will take place in September, it never  occurred to me that it would be during Ramadan.  It is not something I think about all the time nor something I feel obliged to do every year, but as it was a positive experience for me last year (the first time), I felt like doing it again this year.  But…  So as I pondered, I thought how the Qur’an says fasting is good for you if you only knew.  Yes.  God doesn’t want to make things hard for you.  OK.  If you are traveling, you can make up days missed.  Hmm, there is leeway.  But too much leeway and there will no longer be any resemblance to the original.  I decided to make those days up in advance.  That seemed to me to be the most honest.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
