Friday's Fave Five #134
Once again, Friday is here!
I had a good week and the time flew by. I always like to stop on Fridays and reflect on the highlights of my week. If I don't, it all passes into a blur!
If you are interested in doing the same thing, you might want to hook up over at Susanne's Living to Tell the Story. Share life with a great group of people!
1. I'm always looking for spring! Although this week was cold and windy, still signs of spring were there to see, like these trees dressed in their spring finery. You have to catch their white flowers quickly, because they turn green almost overnight:
All these were once white. I took this Saturday at my second church job. No doubt, this Saturday, when I go back, they will all be green!
2. I really enjoyed getting ready for my turn to teach the Wednesday night bible study. This month, I based my lesson on Psalm 3 and titled it "When You Are In A Mess of Your Own Making." You can click here, if you'd like to read it.
3. I have a not-so-secret stash of Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares filled with Caramel. I have been rewarding myself with one every night!
4. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a dress in Penney's that would be perfect for me. I headed to the dressing room only to find out that every teenage girl in the area was in there trying on prom dresses. I put the dress back on the rack and sadly left. This week, I dropped by and there it was! No one had bought it! I went and tried it on and it was me. The best part? It was on sale for an even cheaper price than the first time I saw it.
5. I have been reading just a little each night in Ann Voskamp's book, 1000 Gifts. I am digesting it slowly trying to get every bit of truth and beauty in her words. My advice to you is, run, don't walk, to your nearest book store and get your own copy. Then, when you get your book, don't give up, press in and hear what God is telling you.
Well, that's been my week. I'm looking forward to the weekend - for once I don't have it totally booked up!
Please go over to Living to Tell the Story and visit Susanne!
