CREATE A NEW PRAYERFUL AND POSITIVE DAILY ROUTINE by Erica Miller
- Starting each morning upon waking to practice making the bed first.
- (Bathroom break is ok but gracefully return to make bed)
- Then "Sit just to Sit" for 5-7mins on breath awareness. Breathing in and out.
- Then begin your day
- As the evening ends, unmake the bed but do not get in it just yet
- Go back to the practice of "sitting just to sitting" for 5-7 mins.
- Breathing in and out
- Climb into bed

From "Daily Word for Teens" - HONORING ONE ANOTHER
"What are human beings that you are mindful of them.....? You have made them for
a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned them with glory and honor." - Hebrews 2:6-7
It's nice to be honored, to be appreciated by others and have them mention some of the things I am good at
doing. I think of how God has honored all people, including me, by creating each living, breathing, thinking being
and then giving each one of us a sacred spirit that is capable of expressing divine qualities!
When I hear or see news reports of people harming one another, I wonder how in the world people can be so unaware
of how special each and every person is. I wish I could make a satellite broadcast to the world, encouraging everyone
to honor one another.
For now, I will do my part by honoring God and honoring all that God has created. All people are special to God and deserve to be
appreciated and in some way told how special they are. I can do that, right where I am in the world!
"I honor God by honoring every person as a creation of the creator."
