Today I’m planning on more around the house projects getting done. Today’s focus will be on the garage, but I started the day by remembering to ground myself in some spiritual devotion.  Since I’m not at work today, my ritual of saying the ‘Lord’s Prayer’ as I walk in from the parking lot didn’t happen, so I took that time and pulled out a book that I’d like to recommend as a tool for meditation and spiritual connection for you to use at some point in your day whenever you connect.

The book is ‘Common Prayer- A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals’, it was put together by Shane Claiborne, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove and Enuma Okoro.  It’s a 2010 release that is readily available through your favorite local book seller.


Here’s today’s inspiration from it for July 15,

Benedict of Nursia said this, “The Lord himself in the gospel teaches us the same when he says: I shall liken anyone who hears my words and carries them out in deed to one who is wise enough to build on a rock; then the floods came and the winds blew and struck that house, but it did not fall because it was built on a rock.  It is in the light of that teaching that the Lord waits for us every day to see if we will respond by our deeds, as we should, to his holy guidance…”.”

I hope that today and everyday going forward you will center yourself by taking some time to reflect and connect with the Creator.  It’s a great way to help you ‘Live Like You Mean It’.

Peace be with you!
