Begin Each Day in Prayer (and Praise)

My friend Chelle has this hashtag thing going: #BEDIP. You know me; I am the cat, and one day my curiosity may “kill” me. So I asked her.

It means “Begin Each Day in Prayer (and Praise).”

Yes. Begin each day with a prayer and with praise.

Today, I just left church after playing for the early service. We sang one of my favorite hymns, “The King of Love My Shepherd Is.” We shared the bread and wine of the Eucharistic feast. (I managed not to injure anyone’s ears with the wrong notes I managed to find.)

In a few minutes, I am going to sit on the swing and worship, pray, and praise a different way—maybe not so consciously in a religious or liturgical sense, but by enjoying the sunshine, blue sky, fresh breeze, and fresh air after several days of rain and clouds.

#BEDIP, indeed.
