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:

  1. For a chance to spend time with my youngest sister who’s visiting for work.
  2. For my writing to be selected for an opportunity to make an oral proposal to a producer. It’s always a long shot to get a job writing for TV so I welcome prayers.
  3. For a chance to have lunch with all four of my former colleagues last week. We worked together n the ’90s and have still kept in touch.
  4. For another chance to see my friend Luzanne, whom I haven’t seen in 15 years. I’m delighted to say we still had plenty to talk about.
  5. For young priests like Fr. Joshua Johnson (see post below) whose faith and spirit I hope will show young people how relevant and true the Christian faith is. It seems that while his communication style is contemporary, his theology is tested by time.

  1. My sister, nephew and niece have been visiting here a good long time. They have to leave so they can start school, but they’ve been here two weeks.
  2. I got to visit my friend Adrienne in her home in Sonoma county and got to see God’s grand redwoods. Amazing.
  3. All 8 of the Jesuit volunteers I lived and worked with in San Antonio reunited for Melissa’s wedding. It was the first time in 12 years we were all together. (I was sad to learn that Melissa’s left the Church to join the Unitarians at a church that offers pagan worship. Praying that that changes. She as it’s a faith her new husband likes. I wish she could have resisted that compromise.)
  4. For all the great summer produce: fresh corn, grapes, raspberries, peaches, etc. Such bounty!
  5. For Poldark. I loved the drama on PBS and am now reading the first novel in the series.
