Cheated the other day.

Broke the fast.

Sneaked a peak at the TV at ten.

The newsman was in an ice fish hut.

His top story was about him.

This just in...he'd caught a dinky walleye in a frozen lake.

Lucky me letting silence slip to catch this news.

Some nights are hard to keep the fast. Especially mid-winter nights when the big news is it's well-below zero.

Lakes are frozen.

Fish still bite.

Good thing the large, dark Newfie lays by our front door.  She absorbs tonight's chilly draft.

She watches me watch the tube.

She's thinking,

The real news is you're not missing much, Man.

Paul's letter to the Hebrews (10:36) had the day's headline,

You need endurance to do the will of God and receive what he has promised.
