"If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough." - Meister Eckhart
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) Now that his first semester is over, he has three weeks off before the fall semester begins. We are taking a break from homeschooling to spend some time w/ him. Deo Gratias!
3) I took the older three to their music lessons this morning. They are doing so well & ended the lessons w/ a quartet performance (their director joined in) of "Merrily We Row Along." Deo Gratias!
4) HandyGramps & HelpfulGrammy are definitely living up to their names! We are so blessed to have my parents helping out when needed. Deo Gratias!
5) Now that The Saint is older, I am going to be able to join our church choir when they start back up in the fall. I've been wanting to join for several years. Deo Gratias!
