This morning I forced myself to take time to do some centering before I got ready for the day, even though I was behind. I went through a decent chunk of my daily practices but not all. I felt so centered as I went in to lead worship this morning. I also found that I was able to slow down as I entered the pulpit. One of the biggest challenges I have is slowing down my Jersey girl to a pace that is understandable outside of the North East. It is a constant struggle for me to slow down when using my words. This felt like a huge accomplishment today, one I have been working on for years. Now I hope it is as effective next week!
Today I am grateful for growth.
