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.

Digging Deep for Thankful Thursday

I really had to give some thought to gratitude this week. It's been a tough one, so I'm reaching back over the past couple of weeks that I missed posting.

😊 Much-needed rain. We've had some typical summer rains over the past few days which has been nice. It makes it a bit humid, but the grass and plants appreciate it.

😊 Home-grown tomatoes and cucumbers. There's nothing like being able to walk outside and grab some cherry tomatoes to throw in salads.

😊 Coffee. This was the first week back at school and coffee has definitely been my friend.

😊 Mid-week getaways. We went camping for a couple of nights last week and had the whole campground (all 7 sites!) to ourselves. I'm looking forward to being able to do more of that after this May.

😊 Last year of school. I'm so thankful that this is it and that I know without a doubt that I'm ready to retire. It's just the first week back to school, but I'm already not feeling the anxiety or stress that usually comes with the beginning of the school year. 

Thanks, Rebecca for helping us look at the positives in our lives!

  1. Hi Mary. I start back to school on August 11, and I am not looking forward to it. This will be my 22nd year in the classroom and I am also looking toward retirement, but I have four more years (counting the one coming up). Glad you got some rain this week. We need more out here in in Northern Utah. The Southern Part of our state got heavy rains and flooding last week. Garden fresh vegetables are always nice. I always enjoy your posts. Hope you have a good weekend.
