NaBloPoMo Gratitude # 15
Halfway through this month of gratitude posts and still at it! This has turned out to be a wonderful spiritual discipline so I've decided this is what I am grateful for today, spiritual disciplines. Prayer, yoga, meditation, journaling and the other practices that have some regularity in my spiritual life, and that have served at various times as boot camp and book ends, backbone and backdrop. It's allways best for me when a practice assumes a regularity, a rhythm that brooks no discussion, it just is as regular as breathing. If it is morning, I do yoga and pray before anything else. If it is evening, I journal and pray before sleeping. These are the times when life goes smoothest. Then of course, I fall out of the pattern, let life interfere, and must begin again, finding my way back. And I am grateful that the practices are there waiting for me to come back to them.
