Colleen, from her inspiring blog Thoughts on Grace, hosts this wonderful meme each Wednesday. She says, "Deo Gratias is Latin for Thanks be to God. Remembering to give thanks for all of our blessings, big & small, helps us to find God in our everyday moments and gives us an attitude of gratitude!"
Each week, I join Colleen in remembering & sharing the many blessings in my life. This is such a great exercise for me, helping me to focus on the good that truly is happening in my life, no matter how many trials & stresses I may have.
2) On Monday, I got out to the garden & planted our seeds for this summer...zucchini, squash, green beans, snow peas, & sugar snap peas. Deo Gratias!
3) The Blessings are masters at delaying bedtime (aren't all children?) Last night, however, I welcomed their delay. We spent about 10 minutes watching a spider weave her web just outside our patio door. It never ceases to amaze me how intricate web designs can be...God truly works wonders through his creatures! Deo Gratias!
4) Just this morning, I paid off the final balance on my surgery bill. Feels great to not owe any more on it! Deo Gratias!
5) I reviewed a great Catholic thriller for Ignatius Press Novels this week. You can read my review HERE. Deo Gratias!
