Friday's Fave 5 - March 6, 2009



Happy Friday! I love to participate in Friday's Fave 5 where we share 5 of our favorites from our week.


1. My first favorite I want to share is my favorite author, Karen Kingsbury. This week I was able to read, "This Side of Heaven" and "Every Now and Then." It's not every week that I get to read two of her books!




2. Secondly, a favorite scripture: "You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you." Isaiah 26:3




3. One quirky thing about me is that I love to create new file systems. I set up a new one this week. I feel great when everything is in order!




4. A new favorite quote:



I pray to God this day to make me an extraordinary Christian. –Whitefield




5. One of my favorite wall arrangements is shown below: the cross stitch picture of the poem "Footprints" was found at a yard sale for $5. (Can you believe someone would sell all that work that they did for $5???) The Home Interior plaque on the upper left is a copy of the ten commandments. The heart shaped plaque (also Home Interior) is inscribed with Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." This has special meaning because it was a gift from my former pastor's wife, who is now in heaven.

I have been reciting that scripture all week!
And I think I have read 95% of Karen's books - they are so awesome.

I have done some cross stitch pictures too in my time, enough to know they're priceless. I think God wanted you to have it!!
Have a great week!

I love reading Karen Kingsbury's books! A week or so ago I finished the Sunrise series, the last of the books about the Baxter family and I was sad to be done with them!
Have a good weekend.

Two books by your favorite author? That is something to be thankful for, alright!

Lovely wall arrangement....and thanks for sharing the scripture and quote.

Thanks, too, for your comment on my post.

I haven't read Karen Kingsbury. Sounds like I'm missing a good author. The Footprints poem is so beautiful. Great find!

Hi Jerri! I enjoyed your fave fives this week. Your wall arrangement is very nice. Hey when you can read two books in one week that is a good week :0)
Perfect scripture for any day but so good for these days!
Blessings...

I love the wall arrangement!! Home interiors is good but the true treasure is the Footptints. I am with you, I can't believe you got that for $5.

Whoever did it would probably love that you have created a beautiful place for it to be displayed.

Have a great weekend. Thank you for your encouragment.

The wall arrangement is beautiful!

I love Karen Kingsbury too and have "Oceans Apart" coming up next to read. Was "This side of heaven a good story?

Thanks for that scripture. It was a Word from the Lord for me at this moment.

Kari said...

2 books in one week? That's great. She must be a great author, I better check it out. Love the wall and amen on the scripture.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
