A Nightly Thanks Review

"Live this life and do whatever is done, in a spirit of Thanksgiving" - John McQuiston II, author of Always We Begin Again, a contemporary paraphrase of the Rule of Benedict.

In St. Benedict's Toolbox, I read that 'finding God in all things, we give thanks'.  One of the "tools" to practice the power of thanksgiving is to record 3-5 things at the end of the day for which you are thankful.  For me this day, I am thankful for:

1)  Chrissie
2)  The unconditional love of a puppy (or two)
3)  My opportunity to serve and learn at Goodwin House, Bailey's Crossroads  
4)  My newly named CPE mentor, Ruth+
5)  The cool breeze and fall colors against a clear blue sky

Thank you, Lord, for your blessings are plentiful, and your mercy is great.  Amen.
