This was definitely the answer!
A short set of liturgy with picturesque language ("Christ as a light, Christ as a shield" for example)followed by readings designated for each day of the year, both from Scripture and poems or thoughts from medieval religious figures (such as Aidan or Cuthbert or the like), then a time of intercessions that are open to your own materials or impromptu prayer, closing with blessings.
It takes about 15 minutes if I have a short time of intercessions.
My only complaint -- and it's why I gave it only 4 stars -- is that the paperback is soon losing its morning-prayer pages since I refer to them everyday, so I wonder if the hardback wouldn't be a better choice. In the meantime, I'm tempted to take them out and laminate them for daily use, saving the rest of the book for their fascinating, inspiring readings.
All this has been gathered for us by the Northumbria Community for our devotions and prayers, morning, noon and evening. They are arranged in cycles for private and community use each day. A full two years of devotions convey the rhythms of the inner and outer life. Then there are precious graces for the celebrations of birth, rebirth, marriage, growing older, and bereavement.
These devotions span centuries and give me the sense of the circle of physical and spiritual life. Sometimes I might forget about this book for a short while, but when I go back to it, it is a whole new life and a bright treasure chest all over again!
