I love you, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 18:1-2 (NIV)

Lord, thank you for so many blessings in my life.  Thank you for the life lessons I have learned through this exercise…more than just about thankfulness and gratefulness…lesson about acceptance, finding the good in the “bad” and seeing the joy in normal, everyday activities.  Things that I used to take for granted.  Lord thank you…for everything.

If you would like to participate in the gratitude community, visit A Holy Experience over at Ann’s place…you’ll be glad you did.

While I was gone last week, Sarah tagged me for my five favorite devotions.  After much prayer and thought…I have to confess, that I do not have a real favorite.  While I am a member of the Catholic church now, it was not how I was raised so the traditional Catholic prayers are not things I pray on a regular basis.  Starting my day with scripture reading reflecting on the daily reading in Billy Graham’s Hope for Each Day book.  Music is another way that I connect with the Lord, prayerful songs like those I use on my blog.  I find it really hard to list five, but these are two that I use daily. 

I hope you have a wonderful day…I am starting my new job today…what are you up to these last days of summer?? 

Peace & Blessings…
