It occurred to me, after the third day of this "routine," that I rather
liked beginning the day with my children this way. I'm three months into my
personal morning habits. The rhythm is well-established: exercise, prayer,
shower, dress, tea, Bible. All before 7:30. Even if the day unravels from there,
I can still take comfort in the fact that I got to those things. When I
considered my personal routine in light of the new habit that was unfolding, it
dawned on me that the acquisition of habits could be a layering. Habit upon
habit, I could build into each segment of the day the rhythm I desired.
