I truly enjoy savoring the weekends and planning for the week ahead, thinking out loud about discerning issues, pondering Scripture,  while encouraging my heart to be full of thankfulness and grace. I discovered a simple tool to that fosters order and humility into my life by pausing & preparing early Monday mornings for the new week. I invite you to use these prompts and leave your blog url or just add a few of your daybook thoughts as a comment for all of us to enjoy and be encouraged.
