The alarm goes off. You open your eyes and realize that this is not the first time it has gone off. You’ve been hitting the snooze button for the last 45 minutes. Now youre late. And its a big day. Much to do. Too much. And now you’re already 45 minutes behind.
Once again, you have two choices. You could fly out of bed, get ready and go plowing through this day, and hope for the best.
Or you could take another 10 minutes…. to pray. Turn off the frantic to do list in your head, light a candle, face the icon of Christ, and pray. Offer your day to Him and allow Him to bless your efforts.
So? Which do we choose? Which do we wish we would choose? Can we make a better choice each morning? Maybe even for just this week?
