Just arrived from the mosque After Tarawee prayer I feel so tired and sleepy I perspired a lot while praying It felt like exercising for an hour Of brisk walking and burned calories From the food I took during iftar
Another round of food was served after tarawee prayer I had a cup of arroz caldo, a piece of sandwich and a pack of juice Now I'm full again I just want to lie down and go to sleep
But I need to post my entry for the day Or I might get another X Today is the 18th day of Ramadhan Only eleven days...
I do not think much about the future Nor worry about what comes tomorrow For I know there is someone Who is in control of everything He will provide for me
I live each day with gratitude For everything I have in life I have food to eat and water to drink I have a home that shelters me From the heat of the sun And keeps me warm and dry On rainy days I have more than enough clothes to wear More importantly, I have work That provides me financially

It's day twelve of Ramadhan The sun is blazing Even at this hour I can feel pangs of hunger From fasting My body feels weak But my will is strong Only an hour and a half is left Before Iftar The past eleven days were fine It rained almost every day That makes fasting more easy Because of the cool weather Today is different I can almost feel the heat Piercing my skin if I go out Without an umbrella This is a test of my faith
