I have my wife to thank for today's Transformation post. You'll recall that way back in #3 I announced a new practice - giving a quick prayer offering up my day before I even get out of bed.
Two days ago my wife was having a rough day, and as we cuddled up at bedtime I prayed with her, that she would find strength and hope. It was a warm, intimate moment, and it brought her a lot of comfort. Last night we cuddled up at bedtime and were silent for a few moments, until she lifted her head and asked, "Aren't we going to pray?"
I felt guilty for not thinking of it first, and that guilt triggered some kind of weird response that made we want to pray even less (I'm kinda messed up that way; I know, but that's part of why I'm doing this whole Transformation initiative). I manned up, took a deep breath, and led her in prayer again. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
