Perfect Day

My perfect day happened on November 29, 2008

What made me laugh was can't remember anything in particular, but there's always something in each day- usually it has something to do with something stupid I've done.

I felt really good when I accomplished all I had wanted to not necessarily all I had to do.

What surprised me was the phone didn't ring all day. (I actually checked it to see if it still worked!)

The reason it was perfect was I had the day off-I rarely get a Saturday off. I wasn't on anyone's schedule but my own.

The part I like to savor is my morning prayer time-I like to call it Coffee with Jesus

I felt like a success when - there wasn't anything to feel successful about except that I was actually able to keep the day a relaxed one.

I ate Thanksgiving leftovers.

I drank lots of hot tea.

I enjoyed sappy Christmas movies.

I give thanks to God for everything, but specifically today for "do-nothing days"

Karinann, what a relaxing day you had! You're my first participant in this little daybook "thingie" I started! I wanted to do something to get people to realize we have many perfect days and that God gives us so much. I'm really glad you had a day to just relax, putz around, and go at your own pace. Hope you have a few more of those before the month is out!

Thanks for visiting my blog. You'll get the hang of it!

Welcome! I am here via Mary Rose's blog. I am also a 40-something revert of 6 years, love Narnia and I met Mary Higgins Clark - twice!

Welcome - may you have many fun days blogging (you will)


P.S. Mary Rose is a computer and piture wizard. She offered to fix my header and I was determined to do it myself. That was at least two or three months ago. She must cringe everytime she visits. LOL

A Month For the Souls in Purgatory

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
