Good morning, everyone!
As you can see, the website's having a bit of an update.
We're trying to modernize things a bit in every aspect of the word.
Unfortunately, we missed the post for yesterday's Daily Devotional, but a storm brewed up near me, and there are also several different buttons that have to be clicked for the posts to appear on the blog.
Future blog-posters on here, beware of this.
That being said, small mistakes like this are bound to happen, and missing a day of something, having a little "hiccup" is an idea that can translate to our spiritual life as well.
Most of us don't have the luxury of escaping the hustle-and-bustle of modern life, and I'm not sure many of us would want to leave behind our modern conveniences for the sake of a monastic life, even if the opportunity presented itself.
Certainly, the life of a householder is much easier in this modern era that it was in times past, and so what once may have served as an escape from the struggle and responsibilities of life in becoming a monk seems like a choice to embrace austerity!
How times have changed.
In living out our lives in the world, we're "bringing God to the marketplace." True, we have our sacred ceremonies and sacred spaces, but those certainly affect us, and finding the Divine in the moment (or perhaps, turning our awareness to the Divine in the moment) is equally sacred.
And because we're doing so much all the time, we're bound to forget something. We'll never get it correct 100% of the time.
That's how it should be. Go easy on yourself when you're a busy person that has hiccups in your spiritual life.
