Did you know that Spero Family Services had a Spiritual Life Coordinator.? Rev. Deborah Pollex, began at Spero over 3 years ago. She has weekly spiritual life groups with the youth who live on the Mt. Vernon campus, takes the youth to church on Sundays, has creative groups with the children at Spero Bright Start day care and serves as a mentor and offers guidance to the many employees of Spero. Each week, in addition to the many other things she does at the agency with respective to the moxie maids home cleaning and for the United Methodist Church, she offers an email of inspiration to everyone who works at Spero. We would like to offer this to each of you as a reminder to slow down and reflect on all that life has to offer. Check back each week for the new Pause, Ponder and Pray series.

Pause, Ponder and Pray

Pause: Breathe in, slowly and deeply. Breathe out, slowly and deeply. Repeat.

Ponder: Some days are great. Things go as planned and you bounce from meetings to tasks to your private life and feel wonderful. Then there are other days. When something important unexpectedly goes wrong. Or when you feel sorry for yourself and just want to go back to bed. Days when you don’t feel motivated at all. The simplest way to turn a day, week or month into something more positive is to turn our focus to gratitude. We can always find something to feel grateful for in our life.

Pray: Thank God for this month…no matter what happen.
