Think about those times in your life when you have felt inspired to something really great. Where does that inspiration come from?
The Holy Spirit. God inspires us to do great things with our lives.

Thankful Thursday

This is my first time linking up with Rebecca Jo for Thankful Thursday, at least on this blog. It's been years since I've linked up through my Life in a Small Town Blog but since my life is moving in a different direction, I felt it's time to get back in the gratitude mode!

I'm thankful for summer! Coffee on the back porch (see the above picture) while listening to the Bible in a Year Podcast by Fr. Mike Schmitz ('s not just for Catholics!), Daily Mass, and walks with Gurl Dogg make up my summer routine (even if Gurl Dogg is refusing to come on early morning walks!).

I'm thankful that I purchased a Blessed is She Academic Planner for my last school year. This will be the last planner I purchase. When I first bought a Catholic Planner, it was this one. It has improved, is smaller, and has everything a working Catholic woman needs!

I am so thankful for Jenna Guizar for starting the Blessed is She ministry!

Last, but certainly not least, I'm so very thankful for this man:
Over the past 38 years, he has shown me that I do have a sense of adventure. He has shown me that I don't have to just dream about seeing things, I can actually get out and see them. He has given me the self-confidence I lacked when we first got married. He makes me mad at times but makes me laugh even when I don't want to. I'm thankful for the gift of time that God has given us.
