I've been trying to find more time to pray but it's hard because I need a quiet place to clear my mind for prayer. When I commute to and from work on the bus, I've discovered how to steal time for prayer. First I put on my earbuds and clear my mind by listening to Buddhist chants on my iPhone. The chants help me focus and to quiet those annoying monkeys that jump around in my mind. Next, I will either listen to hear what God says, or I just start talking with Him. Often I just thank Him. I have a lot to be thankful for: My mom is still alive; I have my Mr7; I have a wonderful man who loves me; I have my good health; and I'm looking forward to retiring next year. I'm definitely enjoying my bus commute!
I recently treated myself to some very cool sandalwood mala beads. I like fingering them when I repeat the Buddhist chants. I also finger the beads as I count my blessings.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I wish I had more time to blog.
