Deo Gratias

"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.
1) Messages from the Holy Spirit that really hit you when you need them most! (Tethered to Christ...my recent blog post) Deo Gratias! 

2) On Monday, our family, along w/ my parents & my small church group, took a tour of the Jubilee Museum in Downtown Columbus. What a wonderful, rare collection of religious items, many that are hundreds of years old...statues, paintings, rescued altars, Bibles, & so much more. Deo Gratias! 

3) Our living room, one week after rearranging it, still looks organized & clean...a rare feat in our house! Deo Gratias! 

4) After living in our home for almost 13 years, we finally have some great neighbors. We've always had good neighbors, but these two families we can also call friends.  Deo Gratias! 

5) I know I've said this many times, but I really do give thanks for my hubby's coffee making skills. It's gotten to the point that mine seems weak & tasteless compared to his perfectly blended brew! Well, you do know that the Bible even says men should make the coffee, right? He-brews! LOL Deo Gratias!
