I’m currently reading Twelve Positive Habits of Spiritually Centered People by Mark & Sarah Thurston. My recent ‘reawakening’ of my own spriritual needs guided me to pull out the box of books from storage that I have collected over the years. Many of them are from the ARE while I was a member.
Thinking back over the past 25 years or so it’s funny that I sensed I would need these books one day. I’m not a pack rat and I don’t keep much of anything I’m not using or needing at the moment so it’s interesting I held on to these books even though I wasn’t ready for them at the time.
In looking them over I was amazed at how many I had never read. I feel I gave myself a very nice early Christmas present!
An interesting side note—one of the very first habits listed in Twelve Positive Habits of Spiritually Centered People is one I just started doing myself prior to starting the book (coincidence?). Immedietly upon waking each morning I say a prayer—the first minute, while the body adjusts to wakefullness, offers a chance for us to set the pattern for the day. My prayer has asked for strength and guidence for myself and those who also seek healing of the heart and body. I give thanks for all of my blessings and ask the Creator to bless those who also seek his love.
And yes, I happen to sleep on the right side of the bed….
