(Belated) Blessings of the Week - vol. 25

Ok, so I missed my usual Saturday morning posting, but it's never too late to stop and thank the Lord for our blessings, right?


Sleepovers. Friday night, the kids all spent the night at friends' houses, so DH and I could have some much-needed alone time. What a blessing to have some time alone, and to know that the kids were all having fun, too!


Vision of Peace. Saturday afternoon, I made another trek down to Pevely to the Vision of Peace Hermitages. After days of torrential rain, Saturday was sunny, with clear blue skies, and cool autumn breezes. I only had about 24 hours to spend down there, but it was all good. I soaked up the sunshine, the quiet, the peace. I caught up on some sleep. I read 2/3 of a novel. I got to experience a tiny mass in the chapel... just Father Ed, Larry and me. Thank God for the blessing of this place in my life.


Productivity. Last week, we didn't get a ton of school work done. Princess had a virus in the beginning of the week, and our morning school time kept getting trumped by more important commitments. By mid-week, I was getting frustrated with our lack of productivity. But when I look back at last week, I can see that we were incredibly productive... that, in so many ways, we accomplished a lot in a short amount of time.

And so, as I work on getting back to our reliable routine this week, I pause to thank Him for the blessing of productivity even amidst seeming chaos.


Care to join me in starting this week from a place of praise and thanksgiving?
