Poll: How you nurture/live out your faith

Lately I've attended two talks, one on the German mystic Meister Eckhart and the second on St. Francis de Sales, from the parish Lenten lecture series, and I got to wondering about what particular spiritual practices spoke to people here in the DU Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity group. If you are comfortable sharing, please answer the poll below and include any explanations you like.

What's most important to your spiritual life?

1. For me, it's a blend.

I spend a lot of time in snippets of prayer here and there, the Jesus Prayer when I can fit it in, try to be as Christlike as I can be for my students, read prayers and the Bible, and, odd as it may sound, miss the long Lenten prayer scarf I worked on the last two years during Lent (it's now done). I'm thinking of making something else during Lent this year as a way to focus my prayers.
