This journal collection is fast becoming my favorite part of my day. I love to look back over the week and see how each day’s one thing that stands out from the mass reading builds on the previous day, until there is a theme to reflect on at the end of the week. In this case, obedience, which just so happens to be the word I was given at the beginning of this year, how cool is that!?
Incidentally, I resumed my reading of the catechism again this week which dovetailed beautifully as well, I love how that worked.
This is a good way to reflect on and record what I have learned from Sacred Scripture, and it really only takes a few minutes to do so, but the ability to look back and meditate on that time is so highly beneficial, it saddens me that I didn’t think of it sooner!
Your prayer journal is truly beautiful.
I love the idea of taking a word with you, to meditate, reflect, and pray on during the week. Our pastor suggesting doing that this past Sunday, taking a single phrase or passage from Scripture, not only reflecting on it, but living it out during the week. The first thing that popped into my mine is “Love one another as I have love you”. And my reflection was on just how Jesus went about loving us, how He treated us, how He showed us what to do. I am trying hard to keep this in the front of my mind. Thank you for helping me recall this more firmly today. Blessings to you.
I don’t often comment, but I enjoy your posts. In fact, you have been inspirational! I decided that I would like to start a little prayer journal with my daily, or at least weekly, thoughts. Your idea and example has touched me, and I am going to do it, too!
Aw! Thanks so much for the positive feedback! God bless your journaling and reflections!
