I’m not very good at being consistent…about anything, really. When I am pregnant and nursing I don’t even take my prenatal vitamin every day (shh don’t tell my doctor). I mean to, but sometimes I just forget. So for Lent one of my goals was to say a morning offering before I got out of bed every morning to start my day off right. But I kept forgetting, when the baby woke up crying or the toddler ran into my room screaming “I NEED BREAKFAST!!!”. So I started thinking, what is something I do EVERY day that I can connect this morning offering to? The answer was coffee. I’m pretty consistent about drinking coffee every morning. So I stuck the morning offering up in the cabinet where I get the coffee and filters. I still don’t remember every day (sometimes the husband makes the coffee) but I’m doing better than before.
I’d love to know: what are things that YOU do to bring prayer into your day? You can share in the comments below. Now I better go take my vitamin while I’m thinking about it!
“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” St. Therese of Lisieux
