Exercise #15: Hearing

Get to sacrament meeting a little early one week.  Look up the hymns that you'll be singing that day, and read through the words carefully and prayerfully. Is there a special meaning for you there?
SKIP

Anne and I were both really excited for this exercise when we read it because it was so easy and a little less soul-searching/emotionally draining than some of the last few.  But alas, it turned out to be not so easy for either of us.  Notice it's been three weeks since the last post of an exercise?  Yeah, we could not manage to a) get to church early, b) pay attention to the music, or even, in my case at least, c) sing half the hymns during sacrament meeting over the last three Sundays.  We are just not in a season of life that makes that a possibility.  Maybe someday when our children are able to handle life for five minutes in a quiet meeting....

Next week, appropriately: Acknowledging Limitations

Ain't that the truth! I haven't been able to sit through all 3 meetings in peace for years! Especially these days when half of church is during Luke's nap time. It's either hold him while he sleeps in a quiet, empty room or deal with a super cranky hyper kid. Hmmmmm...
