the still: of the night

Tonight we assembled our "Gratitude Tree" and we gathered around it in the stillness of this Monday evening to pray our Rosary.
The meditation came from My Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis, this version is translated by the Confraternity of the Precious Blood and I bought it because it is a little easier for my bigger boys to understand.
We prayed for Gratitude for the Grace of God.
We read that "for grace will always be given to him that duly returns thanks and he that desires to retain the grace of God, let him be thankful for grace when it is given, and patient when it is withdrawn: let him pray that it may return, let him be cautious and humble lest he lose it."

I hope your Monday night is filled, not only with a few moments of still, but with God's grace.
