If you are a busy parent, or just a busy person, you have discovered you must take advantage of little bits of time when you find it. For instance, I've been known to pray the rosary while waiting in car pool, write thank you notes while at my child's swim practice and even sit on my kitchen floor while preparing dinner for a 3-Minute Retreat with the Loyola Press app.
Recently, while having a discussion with my kids on praying daily, I shared with them the place I probably pray the most - my shower. After laughing hysterically at me, they told me it was a silly and strange place to pray. To me, it’s perfectly logical. I'm alone and quiet. As it is early in the day, I don't have much clouding my thoughts yet. Years ago, as a lawyer, I did my best case analysis and strategy in the shower. Now, most days, I find myself in prayer while getting clean.
What about you? Do you take advantage of quiet time when and where you find it? Where do you find yourself speaking and listening to the Lord?
