I just thought I would write an entry about a major point of stability in my life -- the Daily Office. Or, daily prayer. the first "office" is Morning Prayer, which is a set of prayers, canticles, psalms, and appointed readings for the day. Always, this turns me around and provides me with direction for the day. This places me in a position of thanksgiving and provides me with strength. I've been doing this for about 10 years now. Sometimes alone, but for the last few years this is said daily at my (Episcopal) church and so I start the day as part of a very small group with Morning Prayer. Over time this soaks into my bones!
