Keeping Up With The Daily Office

Over the past few days, I've allowed myself to fall behind on my daily devotional time with my Treasury of Daily Prayer. I don't know why I let myself do this -- it's not hard to find the time each day to keep up, and it's so incredibly rewarding.

This morning, I made a point of getting up early enough to "catch up" on the readings I've missed since last Wednesday. This is a better start to my day than I've had in a long time. I'm trying to make this a habit, so it's simply part of what I do every day, not something that I have to remember to do every day.

Especially since the majority of my "community" worship (Sunday morning) is focused on a "modern" worship style, it is very fulfilling to focus my "personal" worship with more traditional readings, psalms, hymns, and writings.
