peaks, pits, praises, and prayers


So, I saw this amazing idea on Pinterest the other day…."Peaks, pits, praises, and prayers” journal.  I thought this would be a great way to journal at night.  And it would only take a couple of minutes.  It appears these 4 P’s would capture everything! 

peaks- highlights of the day; overall positives
pits- low point(s) of the day; rather than complaining use as a way to look at it as a blessing in disguise
praises- praising God for specific things throughout the day
prayers- prayer requests that arose during the day or have been lingering

I thought I would share my 4 P’s for this week

  • Laughing with a coworker at work over something incredibly funning.  Don’t really remember what it was about…just remember feeling really good to laugh that hard
  • Girl talk with my friends
  • Only spending $67 on groceries this week
  • Spending time with our neighbors
  • Coming home to a clean house with all the towels and sheets washed

  • Feeling overwhelmed with some issues happening in my life
  • Faucet in guest bathtub leaking

  • All of us kids getting together for Thanksgiving (also, see below)
  • Thankful for our friends and family.  Love them!
  • Derek’s niece had her baby boy this week & a friend at work went into labor today.  Babies, babies, babies…so exciting!

  • My grandmother passed away this week and I’m thinking of the family on my Dad’s side
  • All of us kids getting together for Thanksgiving
  • Praying for the patience to let things figure themselves out

Love this!  I think this could be a great link-up.  Thoughts?

Great idea! Sorry you're feeling overwhelmed. I find that talking my issues out with my hubby, dad or God to be the answer. Don't hold it in. I'm here if you need to talk for real.

And I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma. My Grandma (my dad's mom) passed away a little over a month ago and I'm still so sad. I think about her every day. The holidays are going to be tough this year. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. said...
