Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, doing, listening to, watching or pondering.
A Prayer that speaks to this introvert’s heart – I am an introvert. Period. I like and thrive for the quiet, solitude. I find it most in the wilderness. The quiet and the wild-ness of mother earth, sister water, brother sun and sister moon. I listened to the Pilgrim – by Shaun Davey and heard this wonderful prayer by an ancient Irish monk, St. Manchan. The third and fourth lines captured me as he seeks, “a small hut in a lonesome spot to make it my abode.” Read it and then listen to it recited.
What I’m watching – I know that I will be praying with this and learning with this for the next several weeks. Francis – Turning the World on its Head: Subverting the honor/shame system, is a teaching video that I stumbled upon this past weekend looking for something on gospel spirituality and Franciscan spirituality. Being challenged to live and believe differently is most difficult, yet so rewarding to be on the path.

BrainTap – A few of you have asked me to share the link to the BrainTap free trial again, so here it is: Click here. BrainTap Technology continues to really help me as I use it 2-3 times a day to retrain my brain. Subtle yet very noticeable changes continue to reveal themselves in a positive way. Many of my clients are finding good results with it as well.
