TGIF! Once again, the week flew by. I didn't think I had any highlights of my week to share with you, but after thinking it over, I decided there is always something good to reflect on.
1. On Saturday, my daughter, Lissa, went with me to the 100 mile yard sale held about 35 miles from where I live. I was really pumped to go to it; however, it turned out to be a bust. It was hard finding places to park, so you had to park in one spot and do a lot of walking from sale to sale. The main disappointment was how high everyone priced their stuff! I might as well went to WalMart and shopped and then I would have been in air conditioning. Lissa remarked that it seemed everyone had cleaned out their closet and dumped it on tables to sell for $10 apiece! I think I'll stick to regular yard sales from now on. The highlight of the day was getting a prayer answered. I had parked uphill, so I thought it would be smart to turn my wheels all the way to the curb. Later, when I tried to leave that parking space, I found that doing so had locked up my steering wheel. I tried and tried and could not budge it. After praying, "Please Lord, help me!" I had the thought, start the van with the remote control. I did, and then the steering wheel loosened up. Whew! Thank you, Lord!
2. Sunday rolled around and we had a guest speaker at church. Now, our church is currently without a pastor so we've had a steady stream of supply speakers. Some are interesting, some, not so much. This time, it was a very interesting speaker and I took tons of notes. Later, he offered his outline to be copied so we could all have the scriptures he used. Yay! It was an especially interesting sermon entitled 5 Doors of Destruction. We can open five doors to let the devil in to wreak havoc on our lives. Guess what one door is? Unforgiveness.
3. Later that night, we had our monthly All Church Fellowship where I had the first watermelon of the season. Yum! I love watermelon.
4. The next day, Monday, was the American holiday, Memorial Day. A wonderful day to honor those in the military that had sacrificed their lives for our freedom, the holiday has now become a time to honor all those that have passed on before us. We decorate their graves and take time to remember. Then, let's be honest, most of us enjoy the day off with cookouts and time with family and friends. I was excited because, for the first time ever, I managed to make awesome barbecued chicken! (Somehow, I've never liked mine before.) This time I used the barbecued chicken recipe from Deep South Dish, a blog to which I've recently subscribed. The internet. It is a wondrous invention! (I've asked Mary for permission to link to her barbecued chicken. As soon as I hear from her, I will share it.)
5. Quote of the week: "We're to seek for beauty... and refuse to see anything else." ~Anne of Avonlea. Here's hoping that you are seeking the beauty!
