Friday's Fave Five - August 28, 2009

Another Friday has rolled around! It's time to reflect and choose 5 highlights from my week.

Again, this past week has been quiet, with neither ups or downs to distinguish it from other weeks. Yet, there are still favorites to discuss:

1. One of my favorite scriptures: "Rendering service readily with goodwill, as to the Lord and not to men." Ephesians 6:7 AMP It helps me to realize I'm working for the Lord, not for the praise of what others may say. It's great when they affirm you, but if not, knowing that God is pleased with my efforts means more than I can say.

2. Angels: One of my favorite decorating items are angels. Especially meaningful are the angels people have given me.

3. Cool nights and mornings: I know I said it last week, but it's still a favorite: I love it now that the nights and mornings are cooling off. Right now as I type this it is 63°. I just feel better!

4. Fragrance: Good smells are important to me; in foods, in my home, even on me. Right now, one of my favorite perfumes is Shania Twilight.

5. Chocolate Chip Cookies: Of course, fresh home-baked is best, but I even like the store bought Chips Ahoy brand. Everything is better if just a little chocolate is in it!

Hi Jerri,
That is a great bible verse and a very good reminder.
I love the chocolate chips cookies and we could do with some cool mornings and nights.
Happy weekend.

What a great list this is. I thoroughly enjoyed the read. Cool nights and mornings are absolutely the best...and Chcolate Chip cookies can't be beat :) Aloha

Ooooh, this is the second post I have seen with cookies. Mouth-watering!

I am looking forward to coolness but we probably won't have any for a few weeks yet.

#1 is something I need to remind myself of constantly.

Have a great weekend!

So we're the chocolate chip girls this week. ha. I couldn't number how many I've eaten in my lifetime.

I collect angels, too, and broke one of my favorite ones yesterday. I could have just cried.

Love that verse. Yes, we all need to be reminded that the Lord notices what we do, even when others don't.

I'm a big scent person also, I love to sit outdoors in places where it smells good. And I like to burn candles in my house in the winter. And I don't like leftover cooking smells in the house.

That is an awesome scripture to remember.

You're the second person to mention chocolate chip cookies in FFF. Now I'm craving them like crazy! I might have to make a run to the store. :v)

We had one night that went down to 37*F. Crazy for August.

It has cooled off here as well - especially since Hurricane Bill - the cooler nights make it so much easier to sleep.

Mmm - chocolate chip cookies - my daughter made a great batch this week. They were so good!

Have a great weekend Jerri!
