Although I could tell you about my week and outline at least a couple of seemingly-good excuses regarding why I did not manage to complete my daily spiritual reading as I set out to do, I am certain that God would not buy them. If I was to discuss my lack of spiritual reading, despite my talk about how I was going to do better this week, with God, it would sound something like this:
Me: You see, I did not feel well for a couple of days, and I was really busy with…
God: You could not manage to read a page or two of a daily spiritual meditation, yet you found time to check email and blogs?
So this week I am going to try completing my spiritual reading and meditation from a different angle. I plan on using the Catholic Update along with The Journey as my guide, hopefully this will enable me to complete my daily spiritual reading and meditation as I had planned for this Advent. I’ll check in again next week to let you know how my spiritual preparation for Christmas is going.
