    I wake up to birds chirping and give thanks to God. I also invite God to help me to be more “bird-like,” to be thankful for all God’s gifts, recognizing that all I have is gift from God, and to trust in God’s goodness in every aspect of my life.

    I like to sit in our flower garden and pray. I have a statue of Mary nestled in among the roses.

    all great suggestions! Let’s not forget about the awe we feel when we look up at the endless stars and unimaginable worlds that God has created. All given to us so we could get to know Him!

    I pray whenever I’m biking or walking, especially when I’m outside hanging clothes! Love the sights and sounds of the outdoors as it keeps me grounded to who’s in charge!
