Deo Gratias

???????????????????????????????????????

Deo Gratias is Latin for “Thanks be to God.” Remembering to give thanks for all of our blessings, big and small, helps us to find God in our everyday moments and gives us an attitude of gratitude! Colleen at Thoughts on Grace has organized this meme and you can contribute by clicking here. This week I’m thankful for:

  • Graham Greene‘s The End of the Affair. We’re reading it for this month’s book club. Greene’s a masterful writer who shows sides of characters that most writer’s don’t begin to understand. On top of that he’s one of the great Catholic writers. He shows the intricacies of the faith and why it’s such a unique religion, why Catholics view a relationship with God uniquely. His masterful writing is a terrific example of how one uses a talent or gift to glorify God.
  • That I made it through my Wednesday, my most challenging work day.
  • That I’ll be spending Thanksgiving with friends having turkey and possibly cranberry at the Hyatt.
  • That I got two submissions accepted for publication in a teaching book.
  • That it hasn’t been all that cold ~ till today. Oh, well, I’m also thankful for effective heating, that makes my apartment cosy.
