This Sunday I am grateful for :

  • the church service and the sermon
  • the book i picked up for reflections during Lent
  • the grateful heart that is aware of the innumerable gifts
  • thoughtful heart that is aware of the thought patterns  that brings distress
  • For those who guide me to endure loneliness so that I can embrace the peaceful solitude

I am so grateful for:

another gorgeous day of sunshine

a day away from work - and the ability to work on my research paper

God's faithfulness to me over and over again

the worship during the church service yesterday

the blessing of a great night sleep

I am grateful for the sunshine today, talking with a friend, God’s unfaltering presence, that my parcel arrived today, for the writing of Henri Nouwen.

I'm grateful:

     1)    For another beautiful day

     2)   That my puppy is growing up into a wonderful well-behaved dog

     3)   For my feeling of ease and well-being

     4)   For the time and opportunity to really focus on my soul-work

     5)   For my family, friends, fellow students and teacher;  all those who keep me from straying too                  far off the path.

Grateful for another sunny day, that my daughter found a house to rent, for my Thursday Centering prayer group, that I found a spiritual director, that all is well.
