This month's spiritual practice is Examen- a way of reflecting over your day/week/year in prayer to notice where God has been active and how God might be leading you.
Here's another way to ask the questions:
When did I give and receive the most love this week?
When did I give and receive the least love this week?
So find your quiet space- both physical and mental- and set this time aside for being in God's presence.
I gave and received the most love this week in the time spent with my husband in daily Bible reading and prayer. This is new for us to do together. We usually do these things on our own. We're hoping we keep it up and grow closer to each other as we're growing closer to God.
I gave and received the least love this week when I tried to do too many things in a certain amount of time and got impatient with myself and my son. (This happens many times each week it seems). I pray that I learn to expect less of each day so that the time can be filled with the important things.
God, help me to keep commitments that are places of growth and let go of the things I only think need to get done. Amen.
