One of the troubles with trying to carve out new habits is the notorious life that tries to get in the way. Today was Sunday and full of church-related activities. This meant that I was preparing food for potluck in between services and it also meant that my kids would likely drag their feet about anything related to getting ready on time. Rushing around doesn't exactly feel very mindful to me, but I did feel relatively calm despite the hurry-up mode we were in.
We didn't find the time for our mindfulness activity until after dinner tonight, but it worked well just the same. Everyone got their journals out and we copied down Philippians 4:6-7.
