Happy Thanksgiving!

"No meal should be begun without prayer, and before leaving the table thanks should be returned to the Creator." (St. Jerome)

Today we give God thanks for the many blessings God has given us. Make a list of everything you want to give God thanks for. Post it where you will see it everyday. Continue to say thank you for all God's gifts.

What do I find myself saying thanks be to God? My list of thanks include:

  • Relationship with God

  • Benedictine Vocation and Community

  • Etienne Family

  • Friends

  • Students

  • Nature: snowy days, sandy beaches, golf courses, forest, rain, all seasons

  • Good Health

  • Affiliate Heather

  • Food

  • Shelter

  • Clothing

  • Having a teaching job

  • Sense of humor

  • Laughter in my life

  • Lectio Divina

  • Divine Office

  • Catholic/Sacramental life

  • People who desire to "Climb the Mountain" with me

  • Perseverance

  • Joy

  • Peace

Give God the glory and all will be well. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

"May God grant you joy of heart and may peace abide among you."
(Sirach 50:23)
