Our purpose is to form a community of gratitude as a spiritual discipline in response to the command to give thanks always and for everything (Ephesians 5:20). This is intended to be a sacred space where participants can feel safe sharing from the heart.

This Saturday, I give thanks for ...

~ shadows from street light filtered through the tree leaves
~ an uneventful drive home - 6 hrs vs. 10 hrs to get there
~ sipping a glass of wine
~ watching as afternoon sky shifts to dusk
~ going to the pool for the first time in ages
~ a good workout for my knee
~ canceling remaining PT appointments
~ intention to workout at the pool three times a week
~ cautiously hopeful my knee will get stronger
~ hoping for restorative sleep soon after <5 hrs/night this week
~ all is well
