I have been trying all summer to get back into a routine of quiet daily prayer. It works best for me if I do it first thing in the morning. Before I check my email, before the boys wake up, before the day gets to be hectic, normal. This morning I read several things in my Magnificat that reminded me of something that has been on my mind quite a lot lately, the idea that we can start each day anew.
[The One] that rules over men in justice
Is like the morning light at sunrise
on a cloudless morning,
making the greensward sparkle after rain.
2 Sm 23: 3-4
The favors of the Lord are not exhausted,
his mercies are not spent;
They are renewed each morning,
so great is his faithfulness.
Lam 3: 22-23
So, I'm going to start this week afresh. I'm going to try to start each day afresh, and let go of the worries of yesterday. I am feeling much better this week, even though there is so much I want and need to get done this week. I feel as though I am in a better mindset to tackle it all.
Before I go, I'll share this simple card I made recently,
I'm not always in tune with what is trendy at any given moment in scrapbooking or paper crafting. I suppose I prefer to just do my own thing. But, I have mentioned it before, and I'll mention it again here, I am completely smitten with doilies. Don't know what it is...
I used some scraps left over from another project to make this card. Even if it is a small thing, a simple card like this, it feels good to do something creative.
Until next time, blessings to you.
