We all have to get up in the morning and move through the day with as much grace as we can gather. Why not make this pilgrimage through the day with a heart for one another, pausing throughout the day whether this be for two, five, or ten minutes?
So the idea is to take these seven times (below) and pause to reflect and pray, to think of others, to be mindful of one’s self—even if only for a minute or two each time.
Interesting, right? The book is a neat run-down of the 7 Sacred Pauses idea and its history (very old-church liturgical), as well as little snippets, quotes, and prayers that you can say or read at each of the seven times of day.
Really great book with something for everyone: some really beautiful prayers if you don’t choose to take up the pauses, or an awesome blueprint for incorporating the pauses into your daily routine.
