Autumn Prayer Journal Curators, volume 8...
I think that this will be the last week in our Autumn prayer journaling series. With American Thanksgiving next week, that is signalling the end of autumn, at least to me. Blogging will be sparse next week due to the holiday and family time as well. I'd like to do something special and reflective for Advent too, but it would obviously be somewhat different. Thoughts? I'll be getting back to you with my ideas as well. :)
In the meantime, let's get started with INSPIRE for the week!
Inspiration -My inspiration this week is my grandmother. She turns 90 today, and has more spunk than anybody I know. Her quote of the week:
"I never minded when people asked me my age. 88, 89, totally fine. But 90? I have to admit, that is a tough milestone."
Not sweating a milestone age til *90*? I want to be her when I grow up!
Nourish - I've been praying my 54 day rosary novena steadily. Accountability Moment: in the frenzy of the birthday party and hafla on Saturday, I totally forgot until Sunday morning. But on Sunday, despite still feeling quite distracted, I got back on track and have not forgotten again. *gold star!*
Spread Joy -Making the effort to not jump to conclusions about the intentions of others. Most of the time, people have good intentions. I've really been keeping that at the forefront this week.
Projects - I am on the crown decreases for Mike's hat!
And I ordered some yarn during Knit Picks' big annual sale. Self-striping yarn to make socks for the kids, an entrelac wrap for myself, a sweater for a group knit-along, and a hat for a friend. Feeling excited to cast on these new projects!
Involve - I am reviewing an Advent devotional featuring St. Teresa of Calcutta, and will chat all about it with you tomorrow on Tea Time! Let's get excited. ;-)
Reflect - Lord, I haven't always been at my best these past few months. Thank you for never abandoning me.
End Goals -To carry forward the fruits of this INSPIRE series into Advent with us!
Have an INSPIRE list for the week? Leave it in the comments!
