Friday's Fave Five - May 8, 2009

How quickly Friday rolls around again! It's been a busy week, as usual, and here are the highlights:

1. On Monday, I went to my daughter's church with her for a special meeting. It was a very interesting night. The theme of the message was having God's Word in you. This is a topic I'm very passionate about. I feel that too many believers don't study the Word to know what they believe!

2. Tuesday was a beautiful day here in the heartland of America. My hubby and I drove around just enjoying the scenery. Here's a photo I took while we traveled down a road called "Wolf Creek." As I've said before, I love photos of paths, roads, or trails.

Don't you just want to see what's at the end of that road?

Earlier in the day, I snapped a photo of this field overrun by weeds. But they're such pretty weeds:

I just love what God has created!

3. Wednesday was a good day for me because I had the day off. I spent it doing one of my favorite things - organizing and de-cluttering. Things had gotten out of control in a couple areas of my home and I had to do something! I had a list of 14 things to do and accomplished 10 of them. Marking those things off my list felt good!

4. On Thursday, I attended a concert that the community college puts on every year. They invite high school students from all over the region to participate in the concert. Both my younger daughters were invited. I go every year to this event and I love it. Something about 200 young people singing together just lifts my heart. The awesome thing is that they do a selection of religious songs. In this day and time, seeing a school let students sing about God is amazing! It could probably only happen in the heartland ...

5. I'm still working on my fitness goals. I'm up to 16 minutes a day on my trampoline. I'm working on drinking more water. Yesterday I drank 74 ounces. Go me!

So. How was your week? Why not share how things went for you this week at Susanne's Living to Tell the Story.

#1 - good for that church to recognize the significance of God's word! #2 - gorgeous view, Jerri. #3 is always good, the day off part, of course :-)

I love that you shared one thing from each day. Sounds like a great week. I agree with you on your #1. We have to know what we believe in.

#2 - Just gorgeous! I love admiring God's creations!

Great pictures. I love pictures of roads too. In fact a road picture is what hangs over my couch. I love taking pictures of them too.

What a happy week you had. I love paths and roads too. And doors. I agree with you on #1 (and it should be #1) and #3 (love my day off- today)

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Jerri! So glad you had some nice weather and went out in it to explore. I love roads and trails like the one you took a photo of. I'm always the one chirping "why can't we just study a book of the Bible instead of a book about marriage, or kids or life or death or whatever"... I think all of that gets covered when you study the WORD! Sorry for going "off" in your comments :0)
Have a lovely weekend!

Fantastic list, Jerri!

I love scenic drives, too. Congratulations on knocking out 71% of your To Do list on your day off -- Quite impressive.

I'm with you on #1, too.

The photo of the field overrun by weeds looks much like a field of canola....a crop that is very popular around us.

I can't wait until the trees are in full leaf, like the ones along your road photo.

Have a blessed week and a great Mom's Day!

I too drove the high way roads on Tuesday in the heartland area...it was a gorgeous day.
