- Write a blog post.
- Read the daily lectionary texts.
- Read the news.
These are the three activities I want to fill the morning before my family gets up and preparation must begin for getting out the door. Not in this order necessarily; it’s different every day. Entire seasons pass with one (or more) of them not happening at all.

The only constant is the time.
