Good morning. How is your week shaping up? I had such a busy weekend so I am just taking the morning to catch my breath, relax and enjoy the peace. This is the sunset one night recently. It's beautiful isn't it? Looking at a sunset always makes me feel contented in some way.
Recently I found a blog called holy experience. I have really been enjoying it. Even just listening to the music is wonderful! Every Monday she has what she calls Multitude Monday and she lists things she is grateful for, just like I do with my Thankful Thursdays, only she has taken it a step further and aimed for 1,000 things to be grateful for! She has been doing it for quite awhile and is past 1,000 now!
I am going to join in every Monday. I think being grateful is a great way to start each week. It hope it will help me keep life in perspective and remind me of how very blessed I am, no matter what the circumstances.
So here goes.....I'm on my way to one thousand gifts. Each thing I am grateful for is a "gift". Ann at Holy Experience calls it "giving intentional thanks and gathering fresh joy". I could really use some of that "fresh joy"!
