Remembering

#throwbackthursday… I cannot believe it has been two years that I have been writing in this space. It has given me many gifts and helps me as I continue to develop the discipline of gratitude and remembering. During this current year it has been even more important and more challenging for me to keep track, to be intentional with these two important disciplines. Since August I have been making the act of remembering and gratitude part of my morning routine, daily writing down a few brief things that I accomplished or things that occurred the day before, and then pulling out the gratitude journal and adding gifts from the day before. It has been such a gift for my head and heart. I feel more focused on my days, and it helps me to be more intentional with my time. I have many scraps of paper with pieces of blogs to be written in their time and am learning to enjoy the process more. All is grace and for this I choose to remember and give thanks and when the time is right share.

We also need the gift of looking and seeing God in a space, usually by the gifts and fingerprints He has left.
