It is Monday morning and I already feel behind.  I feel like I have 26 hours of task to accomplish in a 24 hour day.  I am convinced that 7 days in a week is just not enough.  I know from experience that this is not the best way to start my week. This kind of pace focuses my attention on things that don't matter.  I can easily become short, bitter, and anxious, lacking in patience, love and acceptance, not to mention thanksgiving. 

What I must do to change this avalanche of emotions that is overtaking me is to slow down.  To be here, now, meeting with my Lord.  Starting my day as a gift, sacrifice, to Him.  To reflect on each breath, letting the next one come as God allows.  If I am here now, then I must to be here, now.  Lord grant me the ability, the opportunity, to reflect on your Grace and Mercy, and to honor you each moment today.  That you would be glorified.
