The sunrise out my window is so gorgeous this morning, and it inspires so much gratitude. Every time I see a sunrise or sunset I use it as a reminder for gratitude and prayer.
If you read books about habits, one of the factors for building successful habits is to have a trigger that reminds you to take the habit action you want to do.
Want to journal in the morning? Put your journal under your coffee cup.
Want to pray more? Find little triggers that remind you of God.
Want to insert a daily Mass into your weekly schedule? What do you already have in your weekly schedule that you can piggy-back that on to?
I’d love to hear about your habits!
Love to all,

Handmade in Kalambaka, Greece by experienced and skilled artisans, this icon set includes two 9″ x 12″ beautifully detailed icons with genuine gold leaf.
The first icon features Jesus Christ as the Tree from which all spiritual life flows hand painted in rich, vibrant colors. He is depicted in this radiant image surrounded by the holy Apostles and crowned by the blessed Trinity. This image brings to mind and heart the Lord’s words in the scriptures, “I am the true vine and ye are the branches.”
The second icon, known as the “Root of Jesse,” depicts Mary as the Theotokos, or “God-bearer” in the center of the tree surrounded by images of Christ’s forefathers along with those who prophesied of His coming. It recalls the verse from the prophet Isaiah: “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.” It’s an image that celebrates the earthly heritage of Christ and its role in the fulfilment of the Scriptures.
Bring new light to your home’s sacred space (and to your own spiritual life) by including these pieces of art as your focus for meditation and prayer.
