Today it is time to look at all the good things in our life and give thanks to God for all he provides.
Firstly I am giving thanks for Joseph and the blessing he is to our family. Last week, he wanted to come out with me and I couldn't take him. I closed our screen door and locked it but he managed to get it opened. I was reversing our car out the driveway and Christopher yelled stop. I hit the brakes and saw Joseph. It could have been catastrophic but thankfully it wasn't.
Next I am giving thanks for our Pope Benedict. I am thankful for his leadership and service to Jesus. Hope he has a long and happy retirement.
In this time of lent, I become more mindful of all the blessings we have in our life and all the material possessions we have. I am thinking about doing the 40 bags in 40 days challenge. I have thought about doing it before but never got around to it. I think this year would be a good time to do it.
