just tuesday.

I have a routine for my weekdays.
I get up, brush teeth, and then walk doggies.
Then, when I get home, I turn the coffee on...
and clean the kitchen--
washing pet food bowls, loading the dishwasher if needed,
wiping down the counters,
and sweeping and mopping the floor. Mopping as in wet-jet swiffering.
I actually love this routine...
especially time in the kitchen...
I clean not in a rush, but at a slower pace...
and it creates for me a space for meditation and prayer.
I get some good prayin' God time in that space.

And then, I am ready for my day. Or not. But at least I have had some quiet slow time within it.

It is so nice not to have to rush God time.

Having a Celtic kind of day of ordinary things prayerfully?
Hey, at a funeral yesterday the 'celebrant' changed the last line of the Celtic Blessing - took out holding you in the palm of God's hand. Changed it to 'peace' or something. I was not happy! A funeral without songs and prayers was rather lacking I felt.
