"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) His gifts to me were a Kindle Fire & three movies to commemorate our time of dating. Jerry Maguire is the one we saw on our first date, The Mirror Has Two Faces has our song in it (I've Finally Found Someone by Bryan Adams), & Titanic was saw three times in the theater. Deo Gratias!
3) The rain has finally let up. Other than a few sprinkles the past couple days, it has rained every day for the past week...some days much more than others. Deo Gratias!
4) We gave Matt a nice, relaxing day for Fathers' Day. He chose the meal (stirfry), we went to a park to take a walk, & just relaxed the rest of the day. Deo Gratias!
5) The Saint has found some great picture books at the library recently, so I've enjoyed reading them to him. I even enjoy the stories! Deo Gratias!
