roosterIn this middle day of the Third Week of Easter, I read a morning reflection that will be my guide for the day. In Seven Sacred Pauses: Living Mindfully Through the Hours of the Day author Macrina Wiederkehr writes that morning is a call to our own resurrection, and so we reflect on what needs to rise in us. On some days we may need to awaken to joy. Or perhaps we need to pray that a positive attitude for our work will be resurrected. Sometimes it is a positive attitude for a particular co-worker, an aging parent, an alienated spouse, a troubled teenager or a colicky child that is needed. If you prayerfully look into your heart, you will probably know what kind of resurrection needs to take place to honor the Awakening Hour.

What needs to rise in you today?
