We can pray everywhere, and often
Grace Cathedral, San Francisco

Are you like me, and you pray often? I love what G. K. Chesterton wrote about his prayer life.
You say grace before meals
But I say grace before the play and the opera,
And grace before the concert and pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing;
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
I love this philosophy and subscribe to it. Soon I will post some wise words here, from an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, on this same topic.
Have a grand week, my bloggy friends.
