TGIF! One of the loveliest days of the week ...
1. Does anyone else love crock pots as much as I do? I bought a new one this week, and I'm excited as a kid with a new toy. My hubby frowned on another crock pot, so we compromised. I had an old one that had a hairline crack in the crock (lol) and I decided to get rid of it to make room for the new. I now have 5, 2 big, 1 medium, 1 small, and 1 little dipper. That's not too much, is it? Please say no!
Isn't she cute?
2. I've had a good week at work and was able to get some things accomplished ahead of time. It just makes me feel so efficient, and that is a great feeling!
3. Anticipation - Tonight, our women's retreat begins. I'm excited because I've heard our speaker before and I always enjoy her messages. I'm also really hoping and expecting to experience God's presence. Nothing is more special than that!
4. I tried something new: I put a tablespoon of peanut butter in my oatmeal as soon as I took it out of the microwave. After it melted, I was in love - it was so creamy and yummy. More filling, too. If you like peanut butter - try it!
5. Quote of the week:
God's goal for every Christian is Christlikeness (Romans 8:29). And He will use everything in our life to see us reach that goal (Romans 8:28). Our job is never to lose sight of God's calling. … David Jeremiah, Turning Point Devotional, 11/1/11
This really resonated with me - everything that happens to me is only allowed because somehow it will bring about Christlikeness in me. To think that God cares that much!
Have a wonderful weekend! Remember, you are God's masterpiece!
"For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago".
