Construct one hour a day like this. This is your hour. After this, you can spend time as you wish to, and with others to support them.
TEN MINUTES: SIT IN SILENCE
Silence. This does not mean no noise. It means you sit comfortably and just listen to yourself, and in all that is happening to you discern the voice and word of God. It doesn’t matter if your mind wanders or goes off in a tangent. Note what comes in to your mind
TEN MINUTES: WRITE
Write down some of your thoughts from the moments of silence, or other words. Just write. This is not to share with others, it is for you.
TEN MINUTES: READ
Read something. It could be a few pages of a book…your Newspaper…
TEN MINUTES: REFLECT AND PRAY
Read a short passage from the Bible. It could just be one verse. Reflect on this. What does this portion of scripture say to you? You may wish to write down a sentence or two to capture your reflection. Pause for a prayer. This could simply be to say the “Lord’s Prayer” with full attention
TEN MINUTES: LISTEN TO MUSIC
Listen to your favourite music. Or tune in to your favourite music station on radio, e.g Classic FM or whatever
TEN MINUTES: GARDENING
Just ten minutes to complete this special hour. A bit of weeding. Or as Jesus suggested, “consider the flowers and the birds” in your Garden. If you don’t have a Garden, tend indoor plants, or just “consider” them
Eat and drink in moderation. Reduce consumption generally.
