Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, listening to, learning, watching or pondering.
A Song to lift your spirits – Be ye Glad, performed by Chris Rupp A Cappella and written by Michael Kelly Blanchard. This song has been a spiritual companion of mine since 1980 when I first heard it from the group “Glad”. Through all of my trials and tribulations, this song has been, and is, an anchor for my faith and my weary soul. I hope it inspires you as well.
What I’m listening to – Relaxing Soothing Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Music on Youtube. Whether it’s in my makeshift home office or on my back yard patio, this is just as it’s titled: relaxing, soothing acoustic guitar music.
This made me belly laugh – A message to the two-leggeds… So funny.
New for Coronavirus Social Distancing – Stay at Home Couple Challenge – Go on a date at home. Take a joint lunch break with your spouse, go on a walk together, have a picnic in the backyard or on a balcony, or make some popcorn and watch a new movie. Focus on being fully present with each other versus just being in the same room. If you two are craving some “social interaction”, Facetime your couple friends for “virtual-double date”

Sacred Scripture I’m pondering – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.
Quote I’m pondering – “If everything is connected to everything else, then everyone is ultimately responsible for everything. We can blame nothing on anyone else. The more we comprehend our mutual interdependence, the more we fathom the implications of our most trivial acts.” ~ Laurence Kushner in Invisible Lines of Connection
Lenten Peace and Blessings.

*** An important instructional tip when using Braintap. When using the Braintap at home, if you do not have the Braintap headset (which is strongly recommended, but not necessary) it is best to use it with earbuds or headphones, even if there is no light element. You want to do it either sitting or lying down and able to close your eyes. PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE WHEN USING BRAINTAP.
