On this first day of Lent...
... my first prayer of the day recorded in my HabitShare app is The Canticle of Simeon, (Luke 2:29-32).
Usually my day's first prayer comes much earlier, but today I slept later than I normally do and got busy with chores and business matters almost as soon as the eyes opened. And it was hours before I could collect myself quietly.
There will be much more as the day wears on; more chores, more business matters, and certainly more prayer. It is, after all, the Lenten Season now.
