Many thanks to Alana at Morning Coffee for this thought .....
"sez she who has been on the computer for an hour, with niggling thoughts of cultivating a life of prayer in the back/forfront of her mind:
BLOGGING does not cause illumination!"
She is 100% right, you know .
If theosis could be achieved solely by blogging, I would have got there by now.
But it can`t .....
I have been up since 05.40, it is now 07.06, I have had a cup of tea and a cup of coffee yet I still haven`t said my prayers, as I am busy blogging.
I wish I could be as easily motivated to pray as I am to blog and read others` blog wisdom.
I am one of the folk who truly need the discipline of regular prayer, and to force themselves to pray at intervals in the day purely to keep focused on the fact that I am *supposed* to be a Christian, and to behave as such, even if I fail miserably ten thousand times a day.
Yesterday was *NOT* a good prayer or behaviour day.
The only consolation is the remembrance that it isn`t the falling down that is so bad, it is whether we choose to roll around in the gutter or to get up and try again.
Thus says Elizabeth, wobbling perilously as she attempts to walk the tightrope of Christian life :-0
