2/52::"I've Got Your Spo-ot!"::January 22

I forgot to post this picture that I took last week:

A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2015

Have you ever watched, "The Big Bang Theory"? If you have, you know that Sheldon Cooper has his "spot". In his spot, he can see in every direction, the airflow is perfect, the temperature is perfect, etc etc. In our house, I am Sheldon Cooper.

I like my spot. My spot is my rocker/recliner in the living room or my chair in front of my computer. Michael loves to tease me by sitting in my spot when I get up to do something. When I come back, he taunts me with his sing-song, "I've got your spo-ot." He delights in it!

My part in this is to say, "You better get out of my spot!" To which he continues his taunting and giggles intermittently. Then I resort to tickles, which I think is what he likes best anyway, combined with reminding him, "You're in my spot!"

Eventually, he laughs and gets out of my spot.

We have rituals at our house, and I think the "You're in My Spot" ritual is the favorite. ;)

A Prayer for the Labyrinth & Life::January 14

I saw this article about a church's portable labyrinth that they created out of canvas and paint. In the article, there was a link that explains how to use a labyrinth when pondering on the things of life, and at the end of that article was this prayer. I love it. I think it encompasses everything that I have been thinking.

Almighty God,
give us wisdom to perceive you,
intelligence to understand you,
diligence to seek you,
patience to wait for you,
vision to behold you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
a life to proclaim you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

This Moment::January 9

{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo capturing a moment from the week.

It's candle season at my house :) Candles make up for lack of sunshine
& make the grey days bearable.
