"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) School plans are coming together. I have all the necessary books except for two, starting & ending dates are decided (as well as days off). Now to lesson plan & get things organized around the house. Deo Gratias!
3) Our new pastor started about a month ago. I've been so impressed w/ his homilies & kindness to his "sheep" so far. Deo Gratias!
4) The weather so far this August had been pretty mild. We've had numerous days where we've been able to open up the house & turn off the air. Deo Gratias!
5) Before he goes back to school for the fall semester, Matt has been busy painting the porch & around the garage. He's done a great job. Deo Gratias!
