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) Ideas that strike me & inspire a blog post...Punctuated by Christ. Deo Gratias! 

2) Finally getting together w/ my dear "Mom Therapy" friend after over a month of family health issues & un-matched schedules. Deo Gratias! 

3) An awesome choir practice last night...so uplifting & fruit for my spiritual soul! Deo Gratias! 

4) Meeting a friend for coffee & lots of chatting Tuesday night! Deo Gratias! 

5) The Blessings had incredible first band rehearsals for the year last Thursday. I'm so happy to hear all the wonderful music my children can make! Deo Gratias!

Maria, I enjoyed that post you wrote. Amazing how the Holy Spirit just suddenly gives us the inspiration and the words!
So happy for you that you are in the choir.
And I just love chats with friends over coffee.
