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) What a beautiful weekend we had...perfect spring temps & sunshine! I'm looking forward to it staying around, though, instead of just teasing us a couple days at a time. Deo Gratias!
3) One of my co-workers has become a dear friend to me. It's great to see her each Sat. & share our life experiences, struggles, & joys. Deo Gratias!
4) I've been hearing spring birds early in the morning for the past couple of weeks. This morning was the first I heard a morning dove. What a beautiful sound! Deo Gratias!
5) On yet another thrift store stop, I found a great photo book of Blessed Pope John Paul II for only $5...Beautiful images of the life of this wonderful man! Deo Gratias!
