Do you strive to be more godly (or more patient, or good, or loving, obedient and humble)? Saint Benedict offers a wonderful invitation for us...to see that the things we long for will naturally flow from our lives when we cherish Christ. Take a listen to this 5ish minute audio as Paula invites us to consider what that might look like in our lives today.
Today - take a moment to think of the things you cherish...and what it is that kindles this "cherishing" - is it having a long lingering moment with a pet or person? Is it a memory of a delighted time? How might you cultivate affection and care for your relationship with Christ by lingering with him...maybe even as you take a walk or a hot bath or enjoy the company of a friend.
